BASSINGBOURN'S final hangar dance went off in style at the weekend.
The 1940s-themed event, held to raise funds for the Bassingbourn Tower museum, saw dancers flock from far and wide to jive the night away to the sounds of the Memphis Belle Orchestra.
Charlotte Page, who attended the dance, said: "It was the first time we had been to a 1940s evening, and I must say we had a great time.
"The dancing was great to watch and my friend and I both very much enjoyed joining in, although we probably didn't look too good.

"But that was the nice thing about it - anyone could give it a go without feeling silly."
Guest of honour was war veteran Jack Fortes, 86, a big band enthusiast, who travelled from his home in Florida to attend the dance.
