Fairies and pirates were roaming Hampstead last Saturday as kids dressed up for the North Bridge House Nursery and Junior Summer Fair.
Classes from both the nursery and junior schools ran stalls at the afternoon fete, which was held to raise money for North Bridge House’s twin school in Kenya, and north London children’s charity Wednesday’s Child.
The winners of a silent auction, who bid for artwork made by the children online before the event, were announced at the fair with the highest bid at £251.
Tokens could be bought at the door to pay for activities and food on stalls lining the fete, including a penalty shoot out, cupcake decorating and Dad’s Bar, where the adults could enjoy alcoholic refreshments.
Performances from the nursery and junior school children made parents proud, with ballet, singing and drama on stage.

“The children all enjoyed themselves immensely and it raised many thousands for Wednesday’s Child and Ngilai School in Kenya.”
