Organisers of the annual folk and blues festival managed to raise £1,000 for Great Ormand Street Hospital.

The festival was held in the grounds of Ruskin House on July 9 from 12pm until 11pm.

The rock n’roll Rob family band kicked off the festival with nine-year-old Tommy playing the drums and they were followed by country and yiddish music from Butt of Lewis, bluegrass from the Ruskin Hillbillies and jazz music from the Hot Club of Purley, which included young Matthew Tighe on fiddle.

As well as great music, there was also stalls and a BBQ with a bouncy castle for children.

A spokesman said: “There was poetry in the air with Bart Wolffe, a poet and author exiled from Zimbabwee and an inspiring performance of music and dancing by a Russian/Ukrainian children's choir in national costume.

“Our thanks go to the many volunteers and also the staff at Ruskin House who worked so hard to make it such a special day.

“Special mention for Robin who managed the sound system from the beginning to the end of the festival and to Andy who did such a brilliant job on the door and ensured that we reached our target of raising £1,000 for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital Charity.”
