The festival has run since 1923 with everything from amateur dramatics to poetry recitals, instrumental performances and full days celebrating some of the region’s top choirs and orchestras.

The 97th Mansfield Music and Drama festival, which attracts around 700 people to take part in venues across the town, has been been postponed until 2022.

Have a look through our gallery of pictures from the sixties through to the noughties and see who you can spot.
