AFTER almost two weeks of live music, Witney Music Festival has come to an end.

The festival featured 150 artists, including jazz, rock, gospel and folk bands, playing in 40 events.

And on Monday night the festivities ended with a show at St Mary’s Church, in Church Green.

Ray Jackson, of 70s folk-rock group Lindisfarne, joined Cooper Black Duo for the finale.

He said: “It was an impressive place to play.

“It’s a very cavernous and very echoey room that is made for performances.”

He hoped the festival would be back next year, adding: “It encourages people to come out and see live music. And it’s great to see young kids coming up and playing.”

Festival organiser Derek West said: “ It was a lot of hard work, but it was well worth it and the end result was really good.

“Without a doubt it’s been the best year so far.”

The festival was promoted using posters with caricatures of Prime Minister and Witney MP David Cameron, who gave the images his backing.
