Hosted by the Rotary Club of Huntingdon Cromwell, the event started with a performance by the Rotary Voices Choir, making its second appearance since it was formed in October, last year.

Musical duo Alice and Francis Brien dazzled the audience with their range of acoustic covers before the award-winning Ouse Valley Chorus, a men’s close harmony group which appeared at the National Barbershop Championships this year, took to the stage.

Energetic percussionists Bang On, who made it to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent in 2008, then set feet tapping with their unique audio and visual performance.
