Back in January, showpeople partied in style at the glitzy, glamorous High Society Showmans Fellowship in Hull.
And who could have anticipated back then what was to follow just two months later.
Friends and families separated, the country in lockdown and social gatherings replaced by social distancing as normal life was put on hold.
But better times will return, friendships will resume and the strength of the community will win through.
Here we take a look back at a great night, at friends from all over the country coming together to celebrate the Fellowship tradition in true showman fashion.
The High Society Showmans Fellowship will be taking place again in 2022.
Here’s to friendship!
