Music festival fans bemoaning the cancellation of this year's Glastonbury Festival enjoyed the next best thing in the heart of Dedworth on Friday - thanks to musician Damian Delahunty and his husband Stuart Moir.

Damian and Stuart have been keeping their neighbours in Knights Close entertained throughout lockdown with their 'live on the drive' performances every week.

On Friday they turned their front drive into a mini-Glastonbury, designed to look as much like the real thing as possible with replica signs and stage names.



Damian was joined on stage by other acts familiar to fans of the Windsor area's live music venues - the Skin & Blister Sisters (Avril and Rosie), fresh from their apprearance on Britain's Got Talent last month, plus Dan Pryde.

To add to the atmosphere the two had set up interviews in their back garden with the performers, beamed onto a screen on the drive before they actually appeared live - just like the real Glastonbury.

Knights Close residents turned out in force to enjoy the fun of a live festival - all safely socially distanced of course in front of their own homes.

Damian and Stuart have staged their weekly performances since lockdown started - memorably on VE Day when Stuart read the king's speech and Damian sang wartime songs.

Last Friday's was their biggest 'event' since then.

Damian said: "I was a little bit concerned after doing our performances every week for so long that people might have started feeling obliged to come out and watch.

"But after the enthusiastic reception for our Glasthomebury Festival I feel we don't have to worry and that our weekly performances really do give people something to look forward to during lockdown."
