A HANGAR dance held to aid Bassingbourn Tower Museum raised more £9,000.
More than 800 revellers attended the dance in a hangar that during the Second World War was the home of the iconic Memphis Belle B-17 bomber.
And it was appropriate that the music for the evening came from the Memphis Belle Swing Orchestra.
Dance organisers have donated £500 of the profits to the barracks to thank them for the help in arranging the event.
