Young musical talent took the spotlight at the third Dennington Concert, raising more than £1,200 for the village hall refurbishment fund.
James Maberly, who organised the event with a team of helpers, said: “It has been a great pleasure to host such an amazing group of such talented young individuals. A brilliant evening with so much talent and a joy for all who attended.”
The show was kicked off by The Teach Boys from Framlingham, a group of teachers who performed some rousing numbers.
Next on was singer Eleanor Petheram, a 16-year-old Framlingham College pupil, followed by the Crisp Brothers (James and Jo) from Dennington, who write and perform their own original music.
Oscar Welsh from Peasenhall followed with three songs, one of which was his own composition, and Katie Russell performed three pieces from musicals.
Will Haigh, aged 16, started the second half with three songs from Ed Sheeran and Robbie Williams, followed by Gabriella Pattinson, also 16, who is a member of Aldeburgh Young Musicians.
Two bands from Framlingham taking part were Salvador, made up of Jan Ashwell, Felix Church, Lucas Evans and Jude Mackan, all pupils at Thomas Mills High School, and the trio Oscar Welsh, Marty Gionis and Abbi Liverton, all at Framlingham College.
The concert organisers thanked Tom Howard and Framlingham College for the loan of their equipment.
