CROWDS were treated to a playlist of classic rock at the first Wychwood Music Festival.

The event on Saturday was held at The New Beaconsfield Hall in Shipton-under-Wychwood.

Any profits raised from the event will be donated to the charity Soldiers’, Sailors’ and Airmen’s Families Association (SSAFA) as the event took place on Armed Forces Day.

Band M is named after its five members Bob Joy, 53, Andy Marsden, 34, Neil Chamberlain, 53, Dave Oliveri, 47, and 44-year-old Mike Johnson. The group played tunes from groups such as Status Quo, the Sex Pistols, Elton John and T Rex.

Singer Mr Oliveri, from Chipping Norton, said: “We think everybody had a good time.

“We play a lot of tunes people will know and sing along to. It was the first festival they’ve held, and it looks like it was a success.”
