Stars of TV’s Men Behaving Badly joined the leader of Islington Council and residents in Newington Green to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

The lively event last month, organised by Mildmay Community Partnership (MCP), was attended by Neil Morrissey and fellow cast member, Hugo Speer.

Guests were treated to the prominent sounds of The Stow Caledonian Bagpipe Band, performances from Highbury Grove School student Huseyin Govtepe and swing dancing lessons from the Swing Patrol.

Cllr Joe Caluori, a MCP trustee, said: “This was a great opportunity to come together as families enjoyed the great weather, whilst celebrities turning up was a surprise for all of us.”
