Music lovers basked in sunshine as the annual Gig on the Green festival took place in Yateley over the weekend.

The two-day event, held on Saturday and Sunday, saw performances from local acts and tribute bands, along with a Battle of the Bands competition.

Thousands of music lovers flocked to Yateley for what was hailed as the best event yet.

The main event on Saturday was followed by the Unwind day on Sunday.

On a line-up packed with great music, home grown talent featured heavily with Alexa Goddard, signed by Jay Z's record label Roc Nation last year, taking centre stage on Saturday with a live performance of her new single, We Broke the Sky.

There were huge cheers for former Yateley School pupil Jordane Boobyer, lead singer of the Velvet Underwriters, performing at Gig on the Green for the first time.

On Sunday, fellow townsfolk brother and sister Dayle and Abi Hodge delighted crowds early in the day, Neil Samuels, musical director for Gig on the Green, joined the Paul Sykes Big Band to belt out a song, the town's own Frank Gardner performed as Frank Sinatra and Dayle Hodge returned to the stage with Take Four to close the weekend with a tribute to Franki Valli and the Four Seasons to rapturous applause.

Colin Ive, chairman of Yateley CIC, which organises the event, estimated more than 4,000 people had attended the event on Saturday.

He said: "The brilliant weather helped and we had huge crowds here on Saturday.

"Gig on the Green is really getting known as a major community event for all the family.

"It has been amazing. A great team of people work very hard to put this together and I am very proud to live in Yateley."

In addition to the music, there was a children's area and charities were invited to take stalls at no charge to raise money for their own good causes.

The 8th Bramshill Scouts spent the weekend litter picking and, together with volunteers from the congregation of St Peter's Church, helped ensure Yateley Green was left tidy.

Mr Ive said: "The only incident we had was a child who fell off some play equipment outside the Gig on the Green area. We brought the child in so our first aiders could help and called the paramedics."

He added: "This really is an event for the whole community and it's great to see families here enjoying a picnic, the music and just having a great time.

"This year's Gig on the Green really has been the best yet."

Tribute acts included headliners The Chilli Fighters, Lionel Richie, Mused, Coldplace and Vogue, while Michael Jackson fans enjoyed a King of Pop show.

Sunday was an 'unwind' day, with visitors chilling to blues, jazz and swing.
