The Really Big Bash, which took place at The Maltings, saw dozens of guests gather to enjoy the variety evening in aid of Cancer Research UK and Myeloma UK.

There was magic by Dean Odell and a disco by Simon Bradleys Disco and singer Kathryn Buck also performed.

Auctioneer Mr Palmer - who began his career in 1982 - has featured in BBC shows Flog it and Cash in the Attic, as well as travelling 40,000 miles a year to attend various auctions.

It was organised by Elizabeth Robertson, Margaret Dooling and friends.
