Charity Basti Ram held a Festival of Colour on Saturday, which saw visitors to the site’s Melbourne Field, in Ilford, throw powders over each other.

The event was inspired by the Indian festival of Holi, which marks the coming of spring.

Visitors enjoyed performances, stalls and food from around the world.
