A free live music festival was held in the Walled Garden at Valentines Mansion and Gardens on Sunday.

This was the third season of the Best of Music Fest and is a collaboration between Steve Collins of the Redbridge Green Fair Music Club and Chris Wyatt of the Redbridge Music Lounge.

The festival is held once a month on Sundays with the final event to be held on October 11.

Mr Collins said: “Chris and I together, have been providing regular live music and live music entertainment in Redbridge for the past 12 years.

“We put on a range of events and regular music sessions simply because we like bringing live music to the general public.”

More than 50 different acts were contacted to participate in this season’s line up and featured acts from American style country rock to soulful ballads, pop hits and jazz.

Musicians are invited to get in touch with the club if they are interested in getting involved and playing.

“We love live music,” said Mr Collins. “We enjoy giving musicians a chance to play.”
