Three stages will boost atmosphere at town's growing music festival
BANDS performing on three stages will entertain families in Keynsham as the town's very own music festival returns.
Professional artists will also offer free workshops for children in a special "creative arena" and there will be interesting stalls, locally-sourced food, as well as ales and cider at the festival on Sunday.
The free festival, organised by Keynsham Town Council, aims to focus on all things "local" and "fair" and is brimming with a wide selection of music to suit all tastes.
"The festival is growing beyond recognition," said Suzy Mizrahi, festival co-ordinator.

"We are perfectly placed with a vibrant music scene all around us and bands like to play here.
"It's a really nice atmosphere and the turnout is always phenomenal."
On Saturday there will be music in the town from noon onwards and from 1pm to 6pm Keynsham Sounds will showcase younger bands in the park.
The day will end with the traditional Classic Keynsham, a relaxing free evening of classical music in the park, starting at 7.30pm.
Bath Spa String Quartet will perform well-known classical highlights and will be supported by a classical guitar recital with Adam Purnell.
The main event is to take place in the Memorial Park on Sunday from noon to 9.30pm.
There will be a wide variety of musical genres including indie, metal and hip hop to folk and reggae.
Highlights include bitter sweet story songs from Gavin Osborn, Anima Circus with their big beat ska implosion of raucous horns, Troy Ellis, son of the legendary Alton Ellis with his Hail Jamaica Reggae Band, the soundtrack to the summer with Rainy and the Dust, and Baraka, a six-piece world music band.
The festival is free but organisers ask for a £2 donation from all adults to ensure the festival's continued success.
