Day of the Dead Party at the Oaksmere, Brome, Suffolk - 2nd November 2019

The Oaksmere hosts a Day of the Dead-themed, er, day, of partying for Hallowe'en, kicking off with a children's party in the afternoon. You wouldn't know there were that many kids in the area or people who would get to know about it, but it's pretty popular and many of the guests have made some sort of dressing-up effort. There's music, a bar, barbeque and even some fire-based performers outside (when it stops raining at least). Before all of this, Nosher steps in to take a photo of local artist David Downes outside Brome Village Hall, for the Diss Express. David has contributed a picture of nearby Oakley church to be turned into Christmas cards which the hall can sell to raise funds.
