The festival continues on Sunday with a concert at 2.30 pm followed by a Victorian tea. David Julian Davies will present Organ by the Sea, a selection of light Edwardian and Victorian music. Tickets for the concert are £7.50 and available on the door; tickets for the tea are £5 but must be booked in advance by calling 01395 443397.
