Performers of all ages and abilities took part in this year's Camborne Music Festival which saw dozens of awards and trophies presented to musicians and vocalists.

The festival was founded in 1970, superseding the original Wesley Eisteddfod, and is held at the Centenary Methodist Church. It is a charity run by volunteers, giving local musicians from across Cornwall the chance to take part in a celebration of music, from accordion to woodwind.

All entrants benefit from invaluable performing experience and receive constructive feedback from the experienced adjudicator, as well as having an enjoyable time at the "friendly festival."

The festival began with the light opera class which was dedicated to the memory of Ken Andrew, and was won by Hannah Pascoe.
