Organisers hailed the event at the village sports ground a success, with a a crowd ranging from teenagers to pensioners listening, and dancing, to a range of music from heavy rock to classic pop.

Funds are split between the ground and the Millennium Play area, and the event has raised more than £15,000 over the years, said sports ground chairman Michael “Snowy” Cox.

This year’s looked set to clear £3,000 and the sports funds would be put into improving the marquees for future events as well as general ground improvements.

The afternoon session saw a chance for youngsters to experience playing on stage with a sound system in front of a large crowd.

“We have people begging us to let them play for the experience and promotion,” said Mr Cox.

The evening saw acts ranging from rock and rollers Midnight shift and village-based cabaret singer Claire Reynolds to Indie and ska band Johnny Romance and the Lovers and headlining teenage rock band Blind Tiger.
