Hundreds of people enjoyed a dazzling display of Indian dance, food and song in Preston.Advertisement
They were treated to the moves of current Mayor councillor Trevor Hart, council leader Matthew Brown and deputy leader councillor Peter Moss busting a Bollywood move on the stage too.
This year’s Celebr8 event brought together Indian heritage and culture at 53 Degrees.
In partnership with the University of Central Lancashire the show had a fashion display as a catwalk stretched down the centre of the venue.
BBC Lancashire presenter Neetal Parekh was the host for the evening, and joined the politicians in showing them how to do a Bangra dance.
