It was the first time Gordon had been to the event and he was "proud" to show his support for the two day event organised by local businessman and musician Stephen Pierre.

Gordon said: "I was really proud to support such a great event and want to congratulate Stephen and his team for their work. All the money raised went to the Trinity Hospice which is a very worthwhile local cause."

Stephen said: "Promoting live music, showcasing aspiring talent and supporting charity, can only be a positive for the community. Most importantly it’s a creative way of improving the town’s reputation both locally and on a national level and I am really pleased with the way it has gone. Thanks to everyone for their support."

Among the acts involved this year were BBC Young Musician of The Year 2015 award winner Alexander Bone and his band and veteran jazz pianist Frank Flynn, while trumpet ace Terry Reaney led his 18-piece Blue Bird Big Band as he celebrated his 80th birthday in the Spanish Hall on Saturday.
