Last week’s Bures Music Festival proved to be a record breaker as the five day event raised thousands for charity.

The event is put on to raise funds for local charities and organisations, raising close to £200,000 since the first festival in 1997.

Tom Moore, one of the festival’s committee members, was so pleased with how the festival went he lost his voice.

“Very clearly it’s been a good weekend,” he said. “It was amazing. It really was the best year. It just seems to get better and better.

“We seemed to have the best turn out and certainly raised the most money.”

The event was sold out on the Saturday with acts including Bootleg Blondie, while Mr Moore said the standout performer was Grammy award winning Alvin Youngblood Hart who flew in from America for the show.

Currently organisers are unsure exactly how much was raised at the festival.
