Musicians and choirs packed Devizes Corn Exchange, and thousands more tuned in on BBC radio and TV, as Alzheimer’s Support staged The Big Jam for BBC Music Day.

More than 200 music makers from across Wiltshire answered the charity’s call for musicians to share their sounds alongside its own Music for the Mind choirs for the event that celebrated the power of music for people living with dementia.

BBC Wiltshire broadcast live from the Corn Exchange with more than a dozen interviews and live songs during the three-hour Drive programme presented by Graham Rogers.

The finale, a mass singalong to Abba’s Thank you for the Music, was also screened live on Points West, which linked up with BBC Wiltshire for a simultaneous outside broadcast.

The singalong was led by 10-year-old soloist Ellie Jenks from Hilperton on her first public appearance.

Alzheimer’s Support CEO Babs Harris said: “Thank you one and all for your contribution to what was truly great, great fun. I was truly amazed by the talent on show.
