The Beach Lawns were buzzing with activity from Thursday to Sunday, as families enjoyed the chance to get up close and personal with a wide range of animals.

Youngsters relished browsing the array of pens, with cows, chickens, sheep, rabbits and more on display.

Farmers were also on hand to give demonstrations on sheep sheering and milking.

In addition to celebrating the North Somerset's farming heritage, the festival also featured a wide range of stalls in a marquee - as traders showcased their crafty creations.
