Our nostalgia photo this week harks back to December 1993 when Cranwell Singers were in fine tune for their production, Christmas Games and Fighter Planes.

The three-night show saw members practising very hard, with lots of time spent on scenery and costumes, according to Roy Wright from the group.

They created a wartime atmosphere showing how people coped with smiles and songs. It also served as nostalgia for those who lived through the era, with Christmas songs and well-known wartime melodies.
