A balmy evening sheltered in the glade of the forest with a slight breeze blowing across the arena was the setting for a wonderful evening courtesy of Rick Astley.
Thousands of people converged on High Lodge to see the star perform some of his best known songs along with some of his newer material during his 90-minute set.
Foldable chairs and rugs were the order of the evening along with plastic knives, forks, cups and wine goblets as the fans tucked into their picnics prior to the show.
‘Together Forever’, ‘Hold Me In Your Arms’ and ‘Cry For Help’ were followed by tracks from his 50 album including ‘Angels On My Side’, ‘Keep Singing’ and ‘Pieces’ and his encore included ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’.
Earlier the dulcet tones of Rumer echoed across the forest as she opened the evening.
