A GLAMOROUS star-studded event was held at the Honington home of Dad’s Army writer David Croft at the weekend.

More than 150 guests attended the party at Honington Hall on Saturday which was organised to celebrate 35 years of Mr Croft’s television production company, Worldwide Theatrix Ltd - thought to be one of the oldest still in existence.

Ann Croft, David’s wife, said: “It was a marvellous party and went extremely well.

“I have thrown a lot of parties and I think it’s probably one of the best.”

The party, which had a 1930s theme, treated guests to food, drink, live music and fireworks.

Mayor of St Edmundsbury, Cllr Christopher Spicer, joined a guest list of friends, family and stars, including Su Pollard, Amanda Donohoe, Jimmy Perry and Ian Lavender.

Writer and producer David Croft, 89, is famed for creating Dad’s Army, Are You Being Served? and ‘Allo ‘Allo.
