There was plenty of dancing in Delamere on Friday night as Tom Grennan took to the stage in the second of a series of gigs within the beautiful forest setting.

Madness kicked off proceedings on Thursday night to a sellout crowd, while Jack Savoretti performed on Saturday night and Richard Ashcroft wrapped up the weekend forest party last night despite the rain.

But Friday night was the turn of Tom Grennan and thousands packed the bank on a perfect summer's evening for the Forest Live gig.

Supported by Liv Dawson and the beautiful melodies of Matilda Mann, the main man himself had the audience of all ages on their feet from the off.

'We don't stop' says Tom, and neither did we!

Royal Highness, Don’t Break the Heart, Head Up, All These Nights, Here, were all in the mix as well as the hugely popular Ella Henderson duet ‘Let’s Go Home Together’ with the superb Petra taking up the female vocal.

Found What I’ve Been Looking For, Not Over Yet, Lionheart and By Your Side were all among the huge crowdpleasers, while one member of the audience in particular became the envy of many as Tom invited her onto the stage to join him in singing Remind Me.

A great job you did too Nieve (and you obviously Tom!)

As if it wasn’t enough to have Tom Grennan perform live in Delamere, it was a double celebration, coinciding with the release date of his latest album What Ifs & Maybes, his third album following Lighting Matches and Evering Road. If his live performances and previous albums are anything to go by, his huge success just looks set to continue!

Not content with bringing just one member of the audience onto the stage – he decided to join them. Sending the crowd into a spin as he jumped in amongst them to perform ‘Little Bit of Love’ as he brought his forest show to a close.

We certainly loved you Tom!
