People were invited to Marine Cove, in Esplanade, to enjoy some live music and entertainment, including bluegrass group Lost In The Grass.

The event was held to mark Somerset Day, which celebrates the best things about living in the county.

There were plenty of activities for children to get involved in, and people took along Somerset produce to sell, including mead and cakes. It even proved warm and sunny enough for a barbecue.

Somerset Day is in its second year, and was originally set up for community groups, organisations and businesses to share the best things about living in the area.
