Priston Festival revels in the jubilee spirit
Villagers and visitors had plenty of fun at this year’s Priston Festival.
The weekend event attracted hundreds of people including North East Somerset MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, Bath and North East Council chairman Councillor Rob Appleyard and Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis.
There was something for everyone with young visitors to the festival getting into jubilee spirit by making a giant queen and king out of all sorts of scrap material before parading their work through the village.
One of the highlights was a talk by animal behaviourist Sarah Fisher, based at Farmborough, who gave a talk about the work she does with dogs and horses. She was accompanied by her partner, actor Tony Head.

At Priston most of the show is free, with a few ticketed events in the evening and this year several Bristol-based bands, including Los Yanquis and the Honey Badgers, played on the free stage on the village green on Saturday afternoon.
There were also performances from the Priston Jubilee Morris side and dance workshops for the younger festival goers.
Festival treasurer Robin Anderson said that it had been a wonderful weekend.
He said: “We are pleased with the way it went. We had more visitors than previous years and it seemed to be a very relaxing two days for everyone.”
