AN evening of musical talent was held at St James’ Church in Alderholt.

Seven talented locals each performed a song during an open mic first half compèred by AFC Bournemouth match day announcer Michael Botto. Helen Nicholson, a well-known folk singer in the region, completed the first part of the evening before the young Bournemouth-based band Willowen took to the stage.

Vicar Pip Martin said: “Part of the purpose of a parish church like ours is to encourage and enable things that make a positive difference to the local community. This event showcased home-grown talent and brought top-quality music to delight and inspire us.”

Profits from donations will go towards the next reCreate Festival, taking place at Alderholt Recreation Ground from April 9 to 13, featuring 90s band Dodgy.
