Violinist Jenny Jarvis felt the community got right behind the band.

She said: "It was lovely. Not many people were there to start with but they slowly started coming.

"It was a little bit windy but the sun shone. Everyone stood up for the National Anthem and it was all very old fashioned and nice. I was very pleased with how it went.

"It was a nice atmosphere. Everyone was cheering us on. We were in the marquee, which was huge, and most of the people were outside enjoying the sun with their picnics. There were lots of family groups and people of all ages."

Other songs that earned a rousing reception included Rock around the Clock, Men of Harlech, and Rule Brittania.

Jenny added: "I was surprised at how much participation there was. The pub did a roaring trade and people seemed really happy. It was a nice country affair."
