Flags fluttering from lamp-posts herald that Tupton Carnival is fast approaching.

While the village celebrations won’t be in full swing until Saturday, the party started early for some families.

Streets were deserted as 150 grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters and friends packed out the community centre to support the summer concert by students from Smiffy Music.

The cheers, claps and smiles on the faces of spectators said it all as a top 40 countdown of songs from pop charts and musicals brightened up a rainy Sunday evening.
