The Band of The Royal Anglian Regiment performed in Chatteris parish church in an event organised by the town’s Royal British Legion.
Around 130 people packed into the church and were entertained with a programme of music covering everything from traditional war pieces, nursery rhymes, West End musicals and an arrangement of Adele’s best known hits.
The second half concluded with Christmas tunes with lots of audience participation.
During a presentation of the Post Horn Gallop- one of the bandsmen introduced a festive turn for proceedings, by coming out from the vestry dressed as a turkey, complete with paxo.
Interval refreshments were provided by branch committee members and around £700 was raised for the Poppy Appeal funds.

It is hoped the band will return to Chatteris next year to perform again during the George Clare V.C commemorations.
A spokesman said: “Thank you to everyone involved in ensuring the event ran smoothly.”
