A music gig in Royston last weekend billed as ‘Not Just A Sunday Afternoon Music Concert’ certainly delivered its promise.
Trinity Life Church member and organiser Mike Sweetlove had lots of praise for the acts who took part in the four-hour music and poetry concert including Britain’s Got Talent teen star Gabz.
“It went fantastically – there’s no other word for it,” said Mike.
“All the acts were really good and we had lots of people come along.
“I think Gabz definitely made some new fans, she also had visitors come along just for her.
“We had about 75 people at the peak which was very good and we raised £500 for the church’s building fund.
“I didn’t know how to end it because I didn’t want it to end.

“I want to thank the staff at The Old Bull Inn who were very helpful and obliging.”
Gabz said she had a great time.
“It’s so nice to be able to help with such a good cause and do something I enjoy at the same time,” she said.
“I had a great time especially as the audience was a mixture of ages and I was able to perform more of my own ballads which they seemed to enjoy and I got some lovely feedback.”
