For music lovers there were eight bands, playing blues, indie, soul, disco and songs from the 1960s.

This is the second year the pub in Red Street has put on the festival and landlord Tony Jandoo, 47, was pleased to see everyone enjoyed themselves.

He said: “It’s important to the village. It brings more people into the village and it’s important to keep little country pubs alive.

“We have to do everything we can to maximise our exposure. We did a festival last year and it had great support from the village and this year was even better.”
