Revellers rocked to nine hours of music as Box Rocks Festival returned for its 21st anniversary on Monday.

The outdoor event, hosted by the Queen’s Head pub, welcomed more than 400 people for an evening of live music in aid of the Forever Friends Appeal, run by the Royal United Hospital in Bath.

Donations are still being counted but the festival has raised £23,000 for the cause over the past 12 years.

Organiser Dean Creighton said: “It rained and it poured but people still came out. The line-up was phenomenal. Straight Shooter rocked the rain away as soon as they started playing.

“We did the ice bucket challenge but we didn’t need the bucket because of the rain – we just tipped the marquee.”

The event was also streamed online so people who could not attend could still watch the music live.
