Nineties boy band 911, who had a number one hit with A Little Bit More in 1999, was among the headline acts as The Kentford Cock staged its first music and food festival at the weekend.

Gamu, a 2010 X Factor contestant, also performed while singer/ songwriter Lewis Mokler from Newmarket was among the local acts at the event, which also included artists from as far as Scotland.

The festival also featured live cookery demonstrations from local chefs.

“We could not have wished for a better line-up of music acts, amazing talent for a sleepy little village like Kentford,” said landlady, Emma Coward, who has been at the pub for less than a year.

“I feel quite proud for what we have achieved and would certainly considered doing it again next year.”

“We had a great weekend and we hope everyone who came along enjoyed themselves.

“It’s all part of getting the pub involved with the community and we hope to continue that.”

She said the pub would be undergoing further refurbishment this autumn.

The festival was in aid of the Animal Health Trust, whose headquarters are based in the village.

Representatives from the charity were on hand to talk about their work.
