Hundreds turned out for H Fest, at Lower Halsdon Farm, raising funds for the Hasler Recovery Centre – a rehabilitation centre for Royal Navy and Royal Marines personnel suffering with physical or mental trauma.

The Royal Marines Charity and Exmouth-based military mental health charity Road 2 Recovery also benefited from the event.

More than a dozen rock, pop and acoustic musicians performed including a Café Mambo-style DJ sunset set. There was also a children’s village, beer tent hosted by Exmouth’s Spoken Bar and The Grapevine Brewhouse, food stalls and other activities. Organiser Captain Paul Fleet, operations officer for Hasler said he was ‘bowled over’ the by the support from the Exmouth community and thanked everyone for their support.
