A charity music festival held in Ely last Saturday raised more than £1,800 for the Addenbrooke’s Charitable Trust.

Mickfest III was held at the Beet Club, in Lynn Road, and saw performances from more than 20 local music acts.

The event was held in tribute to Ely musician Mick Gillett, who died of cancer fours years ago, aged 51.

Co-organiser David Wisbey, said: “The venue was packed out, the atmosphere was brilliant and all the acts on both stages put in great shows.

“Well done to everyone involved in making this the best Mickfest event so far with a record sum raised for a worthy cause.”
