Musician and organiser Andrew Gilmore said it was hoped House of Paradox, in the Victoria Hall place in Llanwrtyd Wells, Powys, would raise about £1,500.

The charity helps wounded British servicemen and women.

There had been hopes for a larger fundraising festival, but plans were changed because of low ticket sales.

About 200 people were expected to attend the smaller event.

Mr Gilmore, who lives in Llanwrtyd Wells, was performing with his band Kobandallas, one of the 13 groups signed up for House of Paradox.

He said he still hoped to be able to bring a larger scale event to the area to raise money for the charity.
