More than 30,000 people enjoyed themselves during another successful Under the Stars as the Olympics summer continued.

The free four-day music spectacular organised annually by Newham Council transformed a small corner of the borough with its varied musical offerings that contained something for everyone.

The extravaganza show cased some of Britain’s finest musicians, with dancing, flags, wellies boots and umbrellas accompanying the sounds of jazz, Asian music and soul legends and spectacular fireworks to the sound of the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra.
