A special event celebrating culture and diversity from around the world was held in Buxton on Thursday.

Organised by University of Derby students, the free International Day event saw the town's iconic Devonshire Dome transformed, adorned with colourful flags representing various countries.

Visitors were greeted by a 'check-in' desk on arrival, were able to sample international culinary treats and learn interesting facts from around the world.

Entertainment included Dhol Drumming and Bhangra Dance performances by Punjabi Roots Academy, who also led a dance workshop, along with popular salsa classes with Wallflower Dance.

Organiser Gigi Bushell thanked everyone who had volunteered, sponsored and attended the event.

"We are so happy you all had such a good time, there were loads of smiles and laughs," she added.
