A prolific composer and musician who has played with music legends like Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton and Bob Marley lent his support to a carnival-themed school fair.
John Altman, who produced the Christmas classic Walking in the Air, played saxophone for pupils at Beckford Primary School’s summer fete in Dornfell Street, West Hampstead on Sunday.
Samba music added to the carnival atmosphere of the fair, while parents and children tucked into delicious Caribbean food.
Rachel Zoldan, co-chairman of the Parent Staff Association, said: “We were so lucky to have John Altman come along.
“It was lovely because we are finishing on Friday so all the Year 6 kids who are leaving us could spend some time at the school with their friends.”
