Pupils performed dances inspired by their cultural heritage
Children enjoyed a night filled with traditional dances and international cuisine as their school celebrated its international evening.
The annual festivities are put on by Beckford Primary School, in Dornfell Street, Kilburn, and celebrate the multiculturalism on show in the area.
Assistant headteacher Emma Brown said: “Parents, families and friends all come and enjoy the performances which originate from all over the world.
“The event has been going on for years and it is one of the most important in our calendar. It is about bringing the entire school together and celebrating our diversity.
