Music acts helped the crowds get in tune for a three-day carnival extravaganza in a Suffolk seaside town. 

The Music Day on Saturday marked the start of Aldeburgh Carnival and featured bands playing at a variety of venues, including the Baptist Chapel, Cross Keys pub and The Lifeboat Shed.

However, organisers have had to cancel the Aldeburgh Carnival Fireworks Display and the Lantern Procession which traditionally bring the event to an end on Monday because of safety concerns with the dry conditions.
