The front man of legendary 1970s band 10cc performed exclusively at the 80th birthday party of a Temple Fortune synagogue.
Singer-songwriter Graham Gouldman, who co-wrote classic 10cc song I’m Not in Love with band mate Eric Stewart, treated more than 700 members of Alyth synagogue, in Alyth Gardens, to a special concert on Sunday.
The 67-year-old, who is an Alyth member, was backed by the synagogue congregation for a performance to mark the 80th anniversary since Alyth was founded.
Fairground rides from a bucking bronco to giant Scalextric, games and circus skills training, food stalls from local businesses and tea and scones served by the local supermarkets were also on offer.
Alyth members were addressed by Mayor of Barnet, Cllr Melvin Cohen, and the Movement for Reform Judaism’s Rabbi Laura Janner-Klaunser.
