Hundreds of people have flocked to the Barrio Fiesta, a celebration of all things Filipino, at East Tuddenham Village Hall today.
Whilst music and dance performances have been taking place inside the hall, the car park has been transformed into a vibrant market place where visitors have been enjoying Filipino dishes and desserts.
Rene Lucero, one of the organisers, said event such as this were a way for the UK's 250,000 Filipinos to share their culture and make new connections.
He said: "This is all about a celebration of life and a way of saying thank you to our local communities."
