TEENAGE singer Amy Ireson stole the show at a music and beer festival near Wantage which raised about £2,000.

For the third year running, the Black Horse pub in Main Street, East Hanney, hosted Hanneyfest, together with the village’s Royal British Legion.

Music acts led by singer-songwriter Phil Garvey performed on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Landlord Dale Knight, who hosted the festival with wife Julia, said: “Hundreds of people turned up over the weekend and I think the festival was a great success.

“We raised about £2,000 which I think is a pretty good effort in this tough economic climate. The money will go to the Royal British Legion’s recovery centres for injured servicemen and to St James Primary School in The Causeway.

“The school had some lead stolen from the roof earlier this year and is trying to raise money for a CCTV system to improve security.

“Amy Ireson, who is from the Wantage area, is only 13 but she stole the show when she performed on Saturday — she has got such a great voice.”
