PUB-GOERS rocked out at an annual pub music festival.
Rokefest, at the Home Sweet Home pub, in Roke, near Benson, was held from Friday to Sunday to support East Oxford’s Helen & Douglas House hospice.
Tom Williams, known as Rokefest Tom, was MC and said: “I can’t give a figure yet, but we have raised a fantastic amount of money. It really does go on to make a massive difference to some very unfortunate people’s lives.
"Rokefest is an incredibly special occasion and it is the visitor’s support that keeps us going, they really are the heroes. I honestly love each and every one of them and look forward to seeing them next year.”
Bands that performed for free included teen rock band Inizia, above, Americana group Country For Old Men and Oxford-based rock group Fracture.
