VILLAGERS turned out in a host of outfits for a week of fun events.

French berets, tie-dye shirts and Union Jacks featured in the festivities in Hutton.

Each event was hosted in a marquee in St Mary’s Field, off St Marys Road, and the fun was kicked off in style at a 1940s night on August 30.

Guests came dressed as French resistance fighters, British Tommies and land girls and were entertained by music from Boulevard Swing.

Saturday’s event moved on two decades at a 1960s night, as villagers reminisced about the decade that brought us The Beatles, JFK and England’s World Cup glory. Revellers were also treated to performances by The Ivy League and The Bula Bula Big Band.

Following a songs of praise service in the marquee on Sunday, the village’s annual prom concert in the evening saw residents’ swept away by the patriotic music of Elgar and other traditional favourites.

Weston Brass provided the stirring music at the concert.
