Tappers of all ages gathered at North Bridge Leisure Centre, Halifax, to show off their tap dancing skills.

Over the years the Tapathon has raised over £250,000 for the Roy Castle Lung Foundation formed in memory of the West Yorkshire entertainer and muscian, who died in 1994 aged 62 of lung cancer.
