A successful Chester SummerJam has taken place at Alexander’s Live in Chester.

Twenty-five acts performed on the two stages in the garden and inside the bar area.

Despite heavy rain throughout the day more than 500 live music fans still flocked to see their favourite local acts and discover new music.

Organisers SMC Events ensured that as well as the familiar local names they also filled the line up with acts travelling from Northwich, Blackpool, Llangollen, Runcorn, Crewe and Liverpool.
