A VILLAGE live music venue is marking its first anniversary with a birthday party featuring the Jon Palmer Acoustic Band.

Live@Hackforth was set up a year ago in the village hall, near Bedale, and has gone from strength to strength.

Ian Schofield of Dales Automation is in charge of the project, and specialises in sound, lighting and even pyrotechnics.
