The Ironmonger Row playground, run by Islington Play Association, was awash with colour and song as children performed solos and group songs they’d picked themselves.

Highlights of the September 1 show included a performance of the Pharrell Williams hit single Happy.

All the songs were accompanied by a machine blowing out bubbles, much to the children’s delight.

Toffee Park deputy manager Ryan Connor said: “The children worked very hard to make a musical for their parents, to show off their talents and to make this first-ever production happen at Toffee Park.

“It was a unique event which expressed what children can do when they put they mind to a project with little resources.”
