Photographs spanning 25 years and a collection of newspaper clippings were displayed in Ely to mark the Babylon Gallery’s 25th birthday.
Around 60 people attended the celebration, which was also an opportunity to thank all the members and volunteers who support Babylon ARTS' work.
Claire Somerville, chief executive, said: "Babylon ARTS is more than the sum of its parts.
"The team are very proud to work with all the members of the community who volunteer their time, to help make East Cambridgeshire, Fenland and West Suffolk more creative, vibrant and enjoyable places to live. Here's to the next 25 years."
The charity has been operating since 1994, providing arts events, exhibitions and creative community projects across Ely and the surrounding area, as well as running Ely Cinema at The Maltings.
As part of the celebration there was a display of photographs showcasing some of the people and projects spanning nearly 25 years.
