A FOOT-tapping time was had in Bognor Regis.

Rox, the town’s community music and arts charity was back in the town with a new brand of entertainment on Sunday (August 25) when they held one of their new pop-up events in Waterloo Square Gardens.

The entertainment provided a range of different musical talents and was enjoyed by the crowds who parked themselves on the grass, sat back and relaxed.

Kym Helston, who lives in Orchard Way, said: “We have all had a great time. The children have loved it too. The music has been great and different too. I would definitely come back to another event like this.”

The musical offerings were varied and included vintage queen Dawn Gracie who had the crowd tapping their feet to her 50s and 60s pop classics.

Classical pianist Charlie Huskinson created a relaxing atmosphere as he soothed the crowd with some of his own compositions as well as some well-known classics.

Dance with Attitude proved they were quick on their feet too.

It was up to funk rap groove band Collyde to close the event – which they did in style.

Rox pop-up will be back next Sunday at Aldingbourne Alive 2013, which will take place at the Aldingbourne Community Sports Centre from 10.30am until 4.30pm.

Further events are also planned for later in the year.
