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.
