Singer and stage star Gareth Gates and 90s pop band East 17 treated a socially distanced crowd at The Big Sheep on Saturday (August 22).
The gig was the latest in a series of shows held at the Abbotsham attraction and curated by The Palladium Club in Bideford.
The attraction has more than 70 individual spaced circles to ensure social distancing guidelines can be followed.
Much-loved pop band East 17 – made up of original member Terry Coldwell and recent additions Robbie Craig and Terry Bull – got the crowd moving with hits including House of Love, And If You Ever and Stay Another Day.
Earlier in the evening Gareth Gates performed a string of hits from his back catalogue, including number one singles Anyone of Us and his cover of Suspicious Minds.
