Hundreds gathered for the Suffolk Sounds event on September 2, where more than 20 bands took to the stage.

The day was also raising money for EACH, with a cheque for £1,000 presented to the cause at the Treehouse on Thursday.

Chris Bones from the organising committee said: “The committee were totally blown away by the support that was given them to put on this event for local music, young musicians and raise money for their chosen charity, EACH, they cannot express their thanks to all concerned enough.”

Work is already underway in planning next year’s event, with more updates on the second Suffolk Sounds expected in the next few weeks.
