Hundreds of pupils from schools all over our area learned about cultures from other countries – as well as our own – at an event at Wicksteed Park last Friday, June 21.

Youngsters were guided around a series of workshops on didgeridoo playing, jewellery making, salsa and Maypole dancing among others.
