Around 100 people gathered to celebrate Easter in a Greek orthodox style on Friday.

Music, dancing, food and prayer were the star attractions at the Alsen Day Centre in Durham Road, Holloway.

Lloyd Coombes, manager of the centre, said: “We all had a really good time, dancing and having fun. Music and food have always drawn people, so it was great to break down some barriers.

“We have a lot of Greek service users, so it was nice to bring the celebration to them, but it was open to everyone and people from all faiths turned up.”
