THERE was fun and music in the air when one of the world’s most famous girl groups performed live in Gwent.

X-Factor winners Little Mix played at Caldicot Castle last night as part on their Glory Days global tour.

Fans of all ages made their way to the castle grounds for the concert, some with specially made T-shirts and plenty of glitter.

Sheppard opened the event followed by Louisa Johnson who got the crowd on heir feet.

But everyone was waiting for Little Mix and as the sun started to go down they came on stage and the crowd went wild.

Jodie Greenslade was at the concert with mum Cath Morgan and daughter Callie Mae who all live in Newport

Ten-year-old Callie came as a surprise birthday present from her parents . She said: “I was very excited. My favourite song is Wings.”

Mrs Greenslade added: I’ve been looking forward to it more than my daughter. We have matching T-shirts. I booked the tickets in Chepstow so had to keep quiet about it until Callie’s birthday.

“We had a lovely time and the nice weather helped.”

Megan Jo Todd, 13, came with her mum Caren from Cwmbran.

She said: “We got tickets online. We love a concert.

“There have been a lot of queues but the atmosphere has been brilliant. This is my first outdoor gig.”

Kerry Jenkins also from Cwmbran said: “We have been looking forward to the concert. It’s nice to have something like this on your doorstep and not have to go to a big stadium.

“There’s a friendly, family atmosphere.”

Leila Phillips from Chepstow came with her daughter Seren and friend Millie Jones. They had gold circle tickets and have been counting down the days to the concert.

Mrs Phillips said: “Its’s amazing. We walk the dog in this park and it’s amazing to have this here.”
