A VILLAGE rocked to the sound of music on Saturday.
Revellers flocked to The Clothier's Arms at Stocksmoor for the fundraising Jimboree - a concert organised by a former Shelley High School pupil James Willoughby.
James, 19, who has just left the sixth form at Shelley, arranged the event in conjunction with the Denby Dale Lions Club's activities committee.
Lions' member Brian Warner said the Jimboree - named after its organiser's nickname, Jimbo - was a continuation of the Willfest concerts held for the past two years.
They were started by another former Shelley High sixth-former, Will Rogers.
It was first held at a local farm, then moved to The Clothier's Arms.
Mr Warner said: "Everyone on the committee, particularly Ian Everett, and James have put in a lot of hard work.
"It is all to do with getting young people together and working with them.
"It is nice to see something good, instead of all the bad things people say about young people," he added.
The event was opened at midday by Denby Dale Lions' president Andrew Leeson.
Ten bands and artists - from Kirklees and beyond - took to the stage.
The mainly rock-based line-up was Stupid Like You, Stalefish One, Maria Lynch, Divide, Nex, Ben Rudd and Emma Page, Session 9, Kirklees MCZ, Brushwood and Stricken.
All money raised from the event will go towards local Lions' charities, including the Bridgewood sheltered housing scheme in Denby Dale.
