It was all smiles at the recent “bring your own baby” karaoke event at Lucky Voice karaoke bar in Upper Street.

Hosted by singing group Starling Arts, the event invites parents to bring their children along for a song and dance.

Children aged from six weeks to three years old were involved, with inflatable instruments and multi-coloured wigs provided to entertain the youngsters.

“The idea behind the event was to create something we would want to be part of ourselves,” Emily Garsin, co-founder of Starling Arts, told the Gazette.

“It’s all about both the parents and the babies having fun. You do sometimes see the babies staring at their parents thinking ‘what are you doing?’, but other than that everyone always enjoys themselves!”
