Bathed in sunshine, this year's Exmouth Pride festival was the 'biggest and best' yet, according to organisers.

Manor Gardens was decked out in the traditional rainbow colours for the annual celebration of diversity in the community.

The theme this year was 'stepping out' and to mark this there was an over-sized Dr Martens boot in the middle of Manor Gardens as a centre piece to the occasion.

Crowds were entertained by live music from party-rock band Reckless while soul singer Mrs Jones belted out Dancing Queen.

The La La Choir also performed, along with the Breakbeat Bandits, Remedy South and 80s tribute act Reflex 80.

Exmouth favourite Martin Weller provided a musical backdrop to the occasion.

The festivities were not restricted to Manor Gardens, with many businesses having rainbow-themed displays in solidarity with the family-friendly LGBT+ event.

Organiser David Martson said: "It just seems to be getting bigger and better ever year.

"We were blessed with brilliant weather."
