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

The Border Morris team adopted a Downton Abbey theme for its annual dinner. Guests ranged from smoking-jacketed gentlemen to walking wounded servicemen and glamorous flappers.

The event was held at the Golden Lion, Settle.

The Flagcrackers are preparing for another busy year and would welcome new recruits.
