Philip and Gill Winchcombe hosted Bourne Valley Jazz at their home in St Mary Bourne, raising funds for the REME Benevolent Fund and for St Peters Church in the village.
Over 350 people brought a picnic lunch to their lawn and listened to Dick Cook and Jambalaya playing high quality traditional jazz, with a popular Highland display during the intervals, provided by the Ramsay Caledonia Pipes and Drums and Highland Dancers.
"This is a very successful formula which Philip Winchcombe has developed over many years. Last year, he raised £2000 for the two charities and I am sure the response to today's event will be at least as good. We had another fine day, and had great fun."
The Youngs took their three grandchildren - all under seven - to the event, to broaden their cultural horizons.
