Saffron Walden came alive for the 18th Dance in the Square, a free event organised by Saffron Walden Initiative, on Saturday.

The crowd enjoyed performances from headliners Miss Disco supported by Moonshine Coyote.  

Organiser Jacqui Portway said: “We are delighted that the Initiative was able to put on a free performance for the community with such great bands.

"This was thanks to the generosity of the public with the bucket collection plus grants and sponsorship."

Jacqui said volunteers had prepared the Square then cleared away everything at the end.
