a GOLBORNE pub’s second annual charity festival provided a bumper line-up of local talent over the Bank Holiday weekend.

More than 20 bands took to the stage at The Millstone, on Harvey Street, over three day Millstone Rocks II, following on from the success of the first festival last year.

A host of high-profile names from the local music scene showcased their skills at the outdoor festival.

The festival featured a varied line-up ranging from the acoustic sounds of Jordan Madani to local indie-rockers Junction 23 and classic rockers Wolf, the day being headlined by Golborne punk band Jumping Landmines.

Another seven bands took to the stage on Sunday, with performers including Leigh reggae-indie band Jeramiah Ferrari and St Helens rockers Titor’s Insignia, while the headlining set came from The Sonic Revolvers with their mix of grunge riffs and classic indie given a modern rock twist.

The action came to a close on Monday with a bill topped by anthemic 1980s rock band Smitten Kitten, and all proceeds raised during the weekend will go to Brain Tumour UK.
