The Cricket Club event proved to be very popular

The first ‘Party On The Hill’ at Rastrick Cricket Club held last week proved to be a great success with more than 500 people attending the event.

It was run in partnership with MuSic 4 MS, raising funds for Multiple Sclerosis.

The party-goers were treated to an excellent line-up of live music, which started at 1.30pm and ran through until late at night.

There were some very talented local musicians entertaining the crowd throughout the day with almost non-stop live music.

The venue was packed out from the middle of the afternoon with plenty of things going on for the children on top of a popular real ale bar and a barbecue which also ran all day and night.

The event proved to be extremely popular with lots of new faces coming to the club and having a great time.

This will almost certainly be an annual fixture at the club and plans are already underway for next year’s event, which promises to be even bigger and better.

In the meantime, live music will now become a regular fixture at the cricket club.

On October 29, the club will welcome The Fiery Biscuits followed on Saturday, November 5, when you will be entertained by McCooney.

The club has forged a partnership with MuSic 4 MS and it is looking to develop the cricket club as a well known live music venue.

Last night’s weekly quiz at The Red Rooster with cash prizes and a complimentary supper saw the jackpot touch £240.
