Community spirit was alive and well in Thetford for a sing along to songs from the wartime era at the weekend.
More than 150 people descended on King’s House Gardens on Sunday for Thetford Town Council’s Thetford Festival event. Even neighbours from a nearby roof top joined in for a sing.
Timescape gave an irresistible playlist and many of the audience joined in by dancing 1940s strolls and jiving. The event was organised by Thetford Town Council, who organise four band concerts every year free of charge to the public.
Thetford Festival is now in it’s second week.

As the gates to the Royal Hospital Gardens at Chelsea opened to the world’s media yesterday, with a frenzy of activity as photographers and camera crews vied for the best vantage points, there was also a very palpable sense of relief among the hundreds of nurserymen and women who have come to exhibit their prize horticultural specimens that their stands were complete and looking their very best.
