Stowmarket Town Football Club’s Music on the Pitch attracted more than 2,000 people meaning the bar almost ran out of drink.

Terry Graham, the club’s events organiser, said: “It was absolutely fantastic, we had the best day and 2,000 plus people which doubled the bar takings; it went very well. It was the best day ever; last year there were about 500-to-800 people throughout the day and night.

“We almost ran out behind the bar but we scraped through to the end of the evening.”

The free event, which was hosted on the club’s pitch, saw seven bands perform from 3.15pm on Saturday.

Mrs Graham added: “This was the event’s fourth year and it has taken a long time to get recognised. This year we changed the name from Fun Day which has possibly helped, people see it as more of an all-rounder.”

All of the proceeds will go to the football club.
