Earby’s second annual roaring 1920s day went down a storm on Saturday as large crowds flocked to the town.
Held at the New Road Community Centre and Victoria Road, fantastic weather greeted visitors on arrival along with locals in 1920s dress and a list of activities and entertainment as long as your arm.
There were dance performances from school children and the Northern School of Dance, music from the Trawden Trio, Craven Accordion Orchestra and the Earby Band and jazz singing.
There were attractions for people of all ages too including miniature horses, donkey rides, exotic animals, traditional games, a bottle stall, a raffle, a tombola and more.
A Toyota Aygo worth £10,000 was up for grabs courtesy of Vantage Toyota in Colne, but despite numerous rolls of the dice, nobody drove away with a new set of wheels.
Organiser Rosemary Biggin thanked everybody who helped to make the day a success and hopes it can become a firm fixture in Earby’s calendar of events.
She said: “We had a fantastic day with huge crowds and the atmosphere was wonderful; electric.
“The weather was brilliant for October as well. I thought the Earby Springfield children were great dancing the Charleston, the Trawden Trio, the Craven Accordion Orchestra and the jazz singer were all very good too.
“The car was a big attraction. Unfortunately nobody won it. I think somebody rolled four sixes, but not the seven needed.
“I think we have made in excess of £1,500 for the centre which is good. It’s really our only fund-raiser of the year.”
