Throughout the whole of this month, we're bringing you the acts we chose to play at this year's Droitwich Music & Arts Festival.
It's a decade since this event began - and this year there's music on various stages throughout the town, in the shopping centres and at the Norbury Theatre.
In former years, this has also coincided with the Droitwich Water Festival.
This is the 10th anniversary of the event - and it appears that Droitwich runs for longer than any of our other festivals in Herefordshire & Worcestershire!

In Session

In Session
Paul Daron is a jack of all trades.
He's been a dustman in Herefordshire, repaired musical instruments in London and has just become a teacher.
He's also a wedding singer based in Hereford - but in his spare time writes for a band he was once in, two years ago.
But he now feel's the time is right to release those songs - even though the band is no more...
