Acoustic bands, a black tie ball and a family fun day were just some of the highlights at the Bassingbourn Mayhem Weekend.
On Sunday, there was a village market, with art displays, homemade cider and crafts for sale.
At 1.30pm a parade of vintage, classic vehicles and motor bikes left Spring Lane and drove up to the ‘Field of Dreams’ where they were showcased for all to see.
Family Anna and Felix McMichael, with children Joey and Luke rocked up in their wonderful veteran 1905 Argyll car, which originally belonged to Anna’s grandfather.
Emily Brooker was out enjoying the day, buying gifts from local stallholders such as Daisy Deller, while Cassy Hunter showed off one of local collector Josh King’s 25 tractors, a rare 1939 McCormick’s Farmail American Lease Lend model.
