A gipsy band originally from Poland were one of the highlights of World Music Day at Forest Farm Peace Garden in Hainault.

Just5 were among acts entertaining visitors to the community garden in Hazelbrouck Gardens, including Indian violinist Jyotsna Srikanth.

There was also a chance to enjoy an African drumming performance and workshop led by Seneke Sillah of Walthamstow-based Mbilla Arts.

The garden was full of other activities on Sunday, including spoon carving with resident woodcutters, learning how to grow herbs and pizza-making.
