A primary school has hosted a mini-music festival to celebrate the end of term.

Pupils at Gospel Oak School in Mansfield Road, Gospel Oak enjoyed a wide range of games and activities, as well as live music, at GOFest on Friday.

Parent Willow Nash and friend Fay Ballard dressed up as pink fairies to grant “wishes” to children, while some entrepreneurial pupils sold Loom band bracelets which they had made themselves.

Camden mayor Cllr Larraine Revah was among the dozens who attended the festivities.

Music was provided by the Go Jazz Allstars band, and parent Luke Haines on guitar.

And plenty of food and drink on offer meant no-one went hungry at the festival.

Children could also get their faces painted to transform themselves into colourful creatures.
