Exmouth Shanty Men, an ensemble from Exmouth Town Band and Heather Redding led Quayside Carols at Exmouth Marina on Sunday evening.
More than 300 attended the open-air concert, which was organised by Exmouth Quay Residents’ Association to raise funds for Christian Aid’s work in some of the world’s poorest countries.
The voice of Exmouth Town Crier Roger Bourgein boomed across the marina to launch the event, sponsored by Eagle One, and Shanty Men’s musical director Martin John Nicholls kept the show moving smoothly.
Jerry Williams provided the power to light up the performers from his quayside chandlery and Dockside Cafe owner Viv Ewings donated drinks and pies to boost the charity’s funds.

Residents’ association chairman Ian Dowell said: “We were delighted that so many families from around the town joined us for what has become one of the highlights of Exmouth’s Christmas celebrations.”
