Saturday’s candlelit concert at The Meres in Grantham drew in fans from as the USA, Russia, Germany, Spain, Japan and Denmark.

Attracting the likes of Brian May and Kerry Ellis to perform at The Meres has “put Grantham on the map” according to South Kesteven District Councillor Bob Adams.

The portfolio holder for leisure, arts and culture added: “The concert was an overwhelming success before a full house and the excellent feedback speaks for itself.

“Grantham has really been put on the map as visitors from around the world, as well as across the UK, came to the town. We can now use this success as a platform to attract more top acts to visit The Meres. It’s been a success story too for the South Kesteven businesses with local transport, restaurants, bars, hotels and local shops all benefitting from the influx of visitors we received over the weekend for the show.”
