Organised by Seaton Town Council, the event included live music, a display by Seaton Majorettes, laser clay pigeon shooting, circus skills workshops, free ice creams for children, community stands and culminated in the lighting of a beacon – as part of the Commonwealth Beacon Lighting event - accompanied by two buglers from Lyme Regis Town Band and the Axe Vale Singers.

Seaton Town Clerk, Julia Mutlow said: "Seaton celebrated the Platinum Jubilee in the most spectacular fashion, in the most stunning location.  

“The intention had always been to deliver a fully inclusive and community focussed event and we are so pleased that we managed to achieve that.  

“We would like to thank all the community groups, volunteers and others who supplied the infrastructure to deliver such an amazing day, but especially all of those who came along with their picnics and provided the best of atmospheres.
