Despite the rain, music fans, bands, singers and roadies were out in force on Saturday as the Musicians Against Homelessness project kicked off its UK-wide series of concerts in Meldreth.

Barrington’s Emma Rule founded the project after volunteering for homelessness charity Crisis.

“It was fantastic to see the first ever UK Musicians Against Homelessness event happen so close to home,” she said.

“Richard Trueman and his team from Your Party Events worked tirelessly organising this huge gig for Musicians Against Homelessness and Crisis. We’re very grateful to him and to the truly brilliant bands and artists that came along to perform.”

Regional manager Richard said: “Many thanks to all the companies who helped – Jezzo Events, Pro Event Hire, Millers Music and Longcrofts.

“Also many thanks to all the guys who helped out on the day and a big shout out to the musicians who made the sun shine in our hearts, at least!”
