Dozens of husbands and wives joined together at the Winter Garden for a mass celebration of their diamond wedding anniversaries.

East Sussex County Council invited almost 100 couples to the bash which was held as part of this year’s Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

There was a 1950s theme, with jazz music and food served on vintage crockery.

The event was hailed an overwhelming success by organisers.
