DIDGERIDOO player Chris Holland opened the Bunbery Bashes in London's Park Lane on Saturday, with a solo didgeridoo performance, fronting top names like Eric Clapton, Rory Bremner and Peter Kay.

Chris, also a bushcraft teacher, from Newton Poppleford, said: "I had a very enjoyable night and even managed to get one of my favourite didges signed by Eric Clapton just before I started to play to the assembled stars."

This year's Bunbery Bashes, attended by 1,100 people, including Freddie Flintoff and Sir Ian Botham, had an Ashes theme and raised thousands for the England U17 cricket team, the world cup-winning England Women's Cricket team and Eric Clapton's Crossroads Antigua Foundation.

Chris delivers didgeridoo workshops in schools and teambuilding events nationwide.
