Performances included clog dancing to traditional sea shanties, an authentic Bangladeshi song and dance, and a thumping Japanese drum show.

The event was organised by the Portsmouth Music Hub, which is part of the Portsmouth Music Service.

Catherine Hobbs, headteacher of St John’s Cathedral Primary School, which took part, said: ‘We are grateful for the opportunity provided for our school by the Portsmouth Music Service because without them such an event couldn’t take place.’
