A remarkable one day music festival in Burnley hit all the right notes for charity when bands from around the North West descended on the town.

Organised by former Blessed Trinity student Greg Worden on his 21st birthday, the Revive Music Festival held at The Loom in Burnley raised much-needed funds for the Alzheimer’s Society, in memory of Greg’s grandmother Edna Yeadon.

Bands from Darwen, Bolton, Colne and Manchester performed from midday until midnight.

His proud mum Mag said: “Saturday was incredible. How a 20-year-old from Burnley pulled together musicians from around the region surprised us all. The calibre of the musicians far exceeded my expectations. A privilege to be there.”
