A PERFORMANCE of a song by Adele thrilled audiences at Waterlooville Music Festival.

More than 4,000 people have been enjoying music of all varieties at St George’s Church throughout this week.

With five performances every day, there’s been something for everyone, including jazz music and musicals.

Around 50 schools from across the area have performed in the festival, including pupils of Bourne Community College, in Southbourne.

Mike Sheffield, one of the organisers, said: ‘They played a number of pieces including the theme from the Lion King.

‘We had various soloists and one girl sang a superb rendition of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain”.’

Entertaining audiences this week have been saxophonist Robbie Rich, handbell ringing group Belcanto, pianist Paul Taylor and choir group Voices United. Tonight there will be a Last Night of the Proms concert, which is a sell-out.
