IN galleries, in gardens, on the beach and along the quayside, a tide of colour flowed through Appledore last week for the 13th annual Appledore Visual Arts Festival.
With the appropriate theme of Coastlines, the four-day festival brought a spate of activity and an influx of visitors to the estuary village, with more than 70 events covering a wide range of art forms and entertainments, including a host of workshops for visitors to gain hands-on experience.
While showcasing a host of artistic talent from across the region, the festival also helped to celebrate two special local anniversaries.
Its theme helped to mark the 50th anniversary of the North Devon Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, helping people to appreciate and sustain the special environment.
