Guests packed into Huntingdon’s Commemoration Hall to enjoy a night of music and dance at the annual fundraising Vaudeville evening.
The event was held on February 24 and featured everything from comedy and dance through to ventriloquism and singing.
Ticket sales and the proceeds of a raffle helped to raise about £1,000 for good causes.
The Rotary Club of Huntingdon Cromwell organised the event and 150 guests sat down for the dinner and show.
The Upwood Ukuleles performed songs from their varied repertoire while the Alchemy Revived barbershop quartet had the audience singing along.
There were comedy sketches from local scouts, and the Roz Clark Dancers were full of energy in their routines.
Chris Shannon, president of the club, said: “It was a fabulous evening and ran very smoothly. The audience were really up for singing along and getting involved and everyone had a lot of fun.”
