Great music and great weather made this year’s Bures Music Festival one to remember.

Running from last Wednesday to last Sunday, music-lovers from all over the region flocked to the popular event, which helps to raise thousands of pounds for good causes.

Organiser Tom Moore said: “This year’s line-up offered an amazing mix of music legends and up-and-coming talent.”

The line-up included Bernie Marsden, a former guitarist for Whitesnake and UFO, and British Blues Awards winner Laurence Jones.

Headlining the Big Top on Saturday night was King of Pop, a Michael Jackson tribute act.

Other headliners included the UK Beach Boys and The Kinx, supported by The Kubricks, funk and soul act Ashton Jones Project, roots rockers The Vagaband, rockabilly group The Kopy Katz, blues rockers Southbound and Hot Tramp.

The festival also saw the return of Robbie Gladwell, of Steve Harley and Cockney Rebel fame, and his new collaboration, Robbie Gladwell and The Sidemen.

Young solo artists and bands took part in the B-Fest young musicians competition on Thursday.

There was a packed schedule of rides, stalls and entertainment for families and festival-goers.

Each year, the festival raises thousands of pounds for charities.

Since the first event in 1997, it has raised and distributed more than £200,000 to organisations including St Nicholas Hospice Care, St Helena Hospice and Ferriers Barn.
