Felixstowe’s seafront was packed as art-lovers enjoyed one of the highlights in the resort’s calendar of events.
More than 20,000 people visited Art on the Prom yesterday, which was blessed with seaside sunshine.
Around 120 artists had stands exhibiting a wide range of work – including paintings, ceramics, glass work, jewellery, photography, textiles and more.
People were able to have-a-go at art at a variety of workshops, plus drawing classes with professional artist Malcolm Cudmore.
In addition there was live music with 1940s band Chocks Away encouraging visitors to dance alongside the prom, plus the Ipswich Hospital Band and Felixstowe Harmonies.
