Crowds flocked to the seaside for the annual Aldeburgh Soul by the Sea.

Archant

Almost 10,000 people visited Aldeburgh to take in the sights and sounds of a fundraising open-air concert.

As well as the live music the crowds at the Soul by the Sea event, which happened yesterday evening, welcomed the overhead Spitfire flypast.

Peter Osborne, organiser from the White Lion and Brudenell hotels in the town, said: “This is the third year we have put the event on. Last year was 60s by the Sea and next year is going to be through the decades – music from the 1950s to current.

“We had a really good family atmosphere, little children and their dads, grandmas and grandads.”

The event supports Help An East Coast Child, Town 102 Kids and Aldeburgh United Charity.
