Guests glammed-up for a black tie event at the 17th-century Barrington Hall to raise money for a children’s charity.
100 people turned out for Barrington Autumn Ball and helped to raise £7,500 for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices.
Guests received a complimentary drink on arrival, before enjoying a three-course meal and being entertained with live music from UK party band Mind The Gap.
Radio presenter Jeremy Sallis was compère for the evening.
Alan Moggridge, who helped run the ball, said: “It went really well, with guests thoroughly enjoying themselves.
