Morris dancers The Flagcrackers of Craven donned slightly different attire for their latest event.

The Border Morris team dressed on a Downton Abbey theme for its annual dinner.

Characters ranged from smoking-jacketed gentlemen to walking wounded servicemen and glamorous flappers at the Golden Lion event in Settle.

The Flagcrackers are preparing for another busy year, and welcome new recruits. “We are a mixed side, which actively encourages families to join,” said a spokesman.

“With grandparents and grandchildren in the side together, it’s a rare hobby that spans the generations, helping keep the whole family fit and travelling to weekend festivals together.”
