MORE than 600 people helped raise �1,700 for charity at a village pub's first live music and beer festival.
Tilfest 2009 took place at the White Horse in High Street, Tilbrook, from Saturday (May 23) to Monday (May 25).
Hundreds of people turned out to enjoy the sunshine, music and beer at the festival in aid of the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Landlords of the pub, Richard and Caroline Binks, selected the charity because a member of their family has MS.
The event featured 12 real ales and live music from Split Whiskers, The Ouse Valley Jazz Band, Joker, Midlife Crisis and Rod Argent from 1960s rock band, the Zombies.
Mr Binks said: "It was awesome. The weather was with us and people flocked from all over to enjoy the music and beer. Thanks to all our helpers we managed to pull off what was a hugely popular and very special event.
