HUNDREDS of music-lovers packed into Hinchingbrooke School's performing arts centre last week for the annual Glastonbrooke charity music festival.

The event was the 13th mini-festival which supports Malawi Education Link and gives young people the chance to play at a professionally-organised gig.

The headline act was rock band A Girl Called Kate and lead singer Mike Hamilton got the crowd singing along during an encore version of their signature tune Katie.

The gig, held last Wednesday, is organised by a team of nine students from the school, with the help of Tim Wickstead, head of creative arts at Hinchingbrooke.

Event organiser Ramsay Nashef, 17, said: "It was a fantastic night that went off really well with the crowd. It was great to see so many people having a good time and the event has been really well-received - better than ever before."

Other acts taking to the stage included two of the school's design technology teachers, Michael Gregory and Andy Bennett, as a guitar-playing duo called The Sirs.
