VIDEO - Monkey business raises cash for Children In Need at Oasby

It was a misty, murky night for this year’s Baboon Night held at Oasby.

The annual event includes a collection for Children In Need and was held on Friday when villagers and visitors joined the torchlit procession around the little village, chasing the ‘baboon’ in front of them.

On arrival back at the Houblon Inn revellers, including a troop of morris dancers, were refused entry until an effigy of the baboon could be tossed over the roof, done by a crowd of excited and eager youngsters.

Check out our video of the action.
