LYME Regis seafront was filled with music as the Lyme Regis Busking Festival returned on Saturday, July 6.

Singers, guitarists, pianists, a choir and a saxophone player all gave performances to the public, all raising money for B Sharp.

Ruth Cohen, chief executive of B Sharp, said: “It has been very good, we have been lucky with the weather after yesterday’s downpour.

“We have had lots going on, performances and workshops, a pop-up choir, a ukelele workshop, a little bees boogie which is a live gig for early years children and their families.

“We have had quite a lot of first-time performers, people who haven’t played in public before.

“Hopefully it is a nice, safe opportunity to get up and have a go and our music leaders have been there to help them.

“What an amazing setting too, you cannot ask for anything else.

“We have a new recording project going on here, we have started a new record label called Harbour Records, which is getting young people who want to break into the industry to start getting their music recorded professionally and release the stuff on the label.

“It is always a lovely event, some people know about it and others wandering just join in, it is a nice mix.

Mrs McMath said: “We saw the posters earlier, we are here for the week down from Ayreshire in Scotland.

“It is a really good atmosphere, Rosie loves people so it has been great and she has been dancing along.

“It is bringing everyone together, it is nice to see the sun out and the music is wonderful

She said: “I just came down today and asked if I could play a couple of tunes.

“It was really informal and casual, I don’t often get a chance to perform so it was really nice to have the chance.

“I have played since I was seven but it was good to get a chance to perform.”

Saxophone player Ollie Crowther from Seaton performed a rendition of "Hit the road, Jack" among other tunes for passing crowds.

The 19-year-old musician said: “It is such a nice place to perform so everyone can walk past, take in the atmosphere of the lovely beach and the music.

“Some people come for a chill time and some of my music is more chill, some of it is upbeat.

“That is what it is all about, some people will love, some may not so much but it is part of the beach atmosphere."
