Party in the Car Park returned to The Doctors Tonic in Church Road last Saturday and sunny weather helped boost numbers, with in the region of 200 people in the audience.

Seven acts performed on stage throughout the afternoon, and sets from the likes of Craig Harris, Ryan Davis, Indi Forde, Zoe Phillips and Jesus Hooligan had party-goers up on their feet dancing in the pub garden.

And kids and adults alike took turns at drumming with Jesus Hooligan.

“The party was great, a really good turnout,” said Jane Dye, press officer for The Green Room.

“The garden was packed, every table was taken, and loads of people were standing to watch.”

She added: “One of the nicest things was seeing how many people brought their children along, it turned into a real family day out. Great to see the local community supporting live music.”

Music returns indoors this weekend with The Green Room staging a rock and blues night tonight (Friday) featuring Me and The Mountain, Big Red and Dirty Half Hundred.

Doors are at 8pm and tickets cost £4.

It’s Alternative Reality on Saturday, with tickets for the 18 plus club night costing £1.

The following weekend sees the WGC pub host punk and metal gigs.

Count the Days, Sonic Scream and Hostages for Smack will be playing live on Friday, June 7 and metal fans can enjoy Silas, Atopia and Far From History the following night.
