A ‘fantastic turnout’ of people played on drum kits, attended mixing classes and watched a laughter therapy show on Saturday.

The event raised money to get the hub, in Weston High Street, up and running for budding artists in the town.

Director at Terrestrial, Tom Spencer, said: “The last few events we hosted have been brilliant. We had a fantastic turnout on the day, and all sorts of different folks came along.

“A whole bunch of young families got involved. Teenagers were there playing music, and we had people visit who were wondering what was going on. We had a wonderful array of activities on offer.”
