A MUSIC festival saw hundreds of people in Hythe this weekend to help fund a major restoration project.

Rock the Pier was organised by campaigners including Hythe Pier Heritage Association to restore the jetty to its former glory.

Pioneers were joined by Trav Cats, Dodgy Jammers, Wired JD and Jarmin on stage.

Bathed in sunshine, Hythe was bustling with those enjoying the events, which was accompanied by a range of food and drinks on offer.
