Who needs Glastonbury when live music is brought to your doorstep? That was the feeling when the first Party on the Pitch music festival took place at Helston Football Club.

With the weather co-operating it proved to be a chilled out afternoon of music on the live stage and in the acoustic tent, which later in the evening became a drum ‘n’ bass tent.

All the acts hailed from Cornwall and covered a range of musical tastes, |including the CuldRoses, the choir from RNAS Culdrose and guitarist/singer Jadine Hocking through to Glory Fire, 50 Wolverines and Rock ‘Ard.

The day was held to raise money for Warchild and the Alzheimer’s Trust, and the hope is that the event will become a regular fixture at the football club.

Children got in for free and there was a relaxed family atmosphere during the day leading into partying during the evening.

In addition to the music there was a beer tent and food stands.

Organisers took to their Facebook page after the event to say: “Festival one complete. Thank you so much to help make this day happen.

“Massive thanks to the bands, without you this wouldn't have happened.”
