A music and poetry festival in aid of Parkinson's UK was held at the Red Lion in Oakley Green on Saturday.

The family fun day featured bands including Midnight, Daved and Confused, Ryewolf, Phil Oades Band, Robin/Phil/Stuart, The Electric Wood and Rhinoplasty, who had all volunteered their time for free.

Authors had the chance to read some of their poetry.

The event at the pub in Oakley Green Road also included face painting, raffles and a barbecue.

Brian Ball, who helped run the event, said: "We raised £1,200 on the day and it went really well.

"We held it for the first time last year, it was quite full this year, you definitely couldn't get a seat.

"There was a white elephant stall, facepainting and a tombola which were popular."
