MUSIC lovers grooved among the grapes at a new vineyard.

Visitors flocked to the Party in the Vines event at Prettyfields Vineyard in Ardleigh.

There was also popular real ale on offer, a gin bar as well as other refreshment stalls.

Pink Shed hosted the two-day music event which features 12 live bands and attracted visitors of all ages.

Co-founder Tom Eyers said: “We have worked with the client before when they owned Dedham Vale

Vineyard but it is the first time we have put something on at Prettyfields.

“It is always a bit of a challenge when you go to a new venue but it seemed to work really well.

“People really enjoy it when they can come somewhere that is a working venue.

“It is really tangible to see the grapes growing so close to where you are.”

Mr Eyers said the first event had been a huge hit and he hoped there would be a repeat in the future.

He said: “It was a really brilliant success especially considering it was the first time.

“Everyone was pleased with it. We had two days of music and two days of camping.

“It was a great crowd, really diverse, and we had something which appealed to everyone aged 16 to 70 and a little bit of entertainment for the children as well.”
