TAUNTON town centre came to life on Saturday as Somerfest took to the streets.

The annual arts and entertainment festival ran across the town centre, with performances, exhibitions, workshops and activities filling every street corner and open space.

Music, art and more are at the heart of the event, which drew thousands out to enjoy the shows - between downpours...

Organisers said despite some poor weather, the event had been a big success.

"Thank you to everyone who was involved," a spokesperson said.

"We hope you all had a wonderful day - we certainly did."
