Mr Eavis turned on the town’s Christmas lights on Saturday following a day of fun in the town centre, including a Burnham-wide talent show, and an appearance from Britain’s Got Talent semi-finalist and Brent Knoll resident Gracie Wickens-Sweet.

Chamber of trade chairman Mark Newman said he was delighted with the turnout for the event.

He told the Mercury: “There were a lot of people who had come out to see Michael Eavis.

“He has always had a strong affinity with Burnham, he came here as a child and ventured onto the beach. It is very much a part of his history.”
