Crowds packed onto the beach for a number of free events to mark the end of Branscombe Festival.

The three-day music festival culminated in a display from Sidmouth Lifeboat and a free concert by Camborne Town Band.

The band marks its 175th anniversary this year and delighted crowds with a mix of show tunes and light jazz.

Tabitha Cadbury, who was visiting Branscombe during the festival, said: “Cambourne Town Band provided one of those hours when it feels as though life could be perfect.

“The finale was an arrangement of David Bowie’s Life on Mars, which worked surprisingly well. Our two-year-old enjoyed dancing to the encore, Helston Floral Dance.”
