Cider, seafood and spirits were on offer to visitors at the new event, and eat:Festivals draw hundreds of people to Burnham High Street throughout the year.

Children had the opportunity to meet Father Christmas, and people could sample honey, chilli and mulled wine from across the district.

In addition to market stalls, Highbridge Area Foodbank collected donations, which are given to people in the area to prevent them from going hungry.

Burnham and Highbridge Band played at the market, as well as The Roller DisGoat, a VW Camper Van with a DJ booth.
