Inspired by the World Cup in Brazil, samba rhythms and steel-drum beats provided the soundtrack for a sun-kissed Central Park.

Hundreds of children, young people and community groups also took to the streets to showcase a diverse range of music and dancing as part of a colourful procession.

In the park, revellers were treated to a seaside experience at ‘Newham Beach’ while Bob the Builder entertained children with a selection of hits.

For a full review of the whole weekend, pick up Wednesday’s copy of the Recorder.
