There was music, monologues and laughs galore as a Fenland church held an Old Time Music Hall.

The event, at St Peter and St Paul’s Church, was one of the highlights of the Wisbech Arts Festival.

Wally Hutchinson, the only surviving member of 60s group the Nene River Boys, gathered together a motley crew of folk who played a variety of instruments including a tea chest base, wash board and didgeridoo.

Great fun was had by all and £350 was raised, which will go towards church repairs.
