Toby, who lives in Newbold-on-Stour and attends Shipston High School, sang three songs, including Bruno Mars’ When I Was Your Man.

The Peas got the crowd into upbeat mood with their interpretations of 1980s covers.

And three-piece beatbox-style act Duke had the whole square singing along with their final number, Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On A Prayer.

The evening ended with a tribute to the late 1960s thanks to Creedance Clearwater Revived.

Chairman of Shipston Proms, Tim Porter, said: “The last night of the Proms is always a family-friendly event,- and this year was was no exception, as people enjoyed the different styles of music.

“2015 was a real high point as it involved so many talented young musicians, but the we look forward to putting another eclectic programme together for 2016.”
