MORE than 130 people were entertained at a gig which raised around £1,000 for a memorial garden in Gosport.

Revellers at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum, in Haslar Road, Gosport, enjoyed music at the Museum at Night: Unplugged gig.

Gosport’s Battle of the Bands winners Kelly and the Acoustics headlined, entertaining the 135 music-lovers.

Stuart Lovibond, 18, from Gosport-based youth group Loud and Proud, helped organise the night.

He said: ‘It was a really nice atmosphere, everyone was really enjoying themselves.

‘There was music for everybody, rather than just for old people or young people.

‘We managed to create quite a nice atmosphere, no matter what there age was.

‘It was an almost sold-out event.’

The final total has not yet been calculated but Stuart said around £1,100 had been raised.

The cash will go to revamping the memorial garden at the submarine museum.

Stuart added: ‘At the moment it’s quite a grey and dull place.

‘So what they’re doing now with that money is putting a garden in there.

‘People come from all over the world to see relatives’ names and it’s emotional.’

The museum is also undertaking a huge project to refurbish a Second World War era submarine, HMS Alliance.
