A festival to celebrate Pakistan Independence Day has been held in Burton and saw hundreds of people gathered to celebrate 70 years since the country gained independence from Britain.
The event was held at Burton Town Hall on Sunday, August 13, and people from the Pakistani community in the town were excited to join in with the celebrations.
Organiser, Madiha Jamil, said: "There's usually events like this in big cities such as London or Birmingham, but we never see things like this in Burton.
"I wanted to organise something to celebrate our culture that was a bit more local. We have a big Pakistani community in Burton, so it was nice to get everyone together to celebrate."
More than 400 people turned out to the event dressed in green and white to represent the colours that feature in the country's flag.
Visitors to the event were treated to traditional Pakistani foods, music and dancing.
The event caught the eye of major news networks in Pakistan, GEO TV and Roze News, which attended the festival to speak to members of the community about their celebrations.
Iconic Pakistani singer from the 1960s Naheed Niazi also attended the event, and was said to be thrilled to be there celebrating 70 years since partition came into effect, which divided British India into India and Pakistan.
Mrs Jamil, who owns Madiha's Ethnic Trendz, in Waterloo Street, Burton, enjoyed the event with her three children Delisha Haroon, Shahan and Ehtishaam. She said: "It was absolutely brilliant. I was so glad that so many people turned out to join in with the festivities.
"Everyone was so happy, and it brought back a lot of happy memories for some of the people I spoke to.
"I've even had people come into my shop with flowers to thank me for organising it."
How Independence Day is celebrated
Independence Day in Pakistan is held every year on August 14 to commemorate the day when the country achieved independence following the end of the British Raj in 1947.
Pakistan came into existence as a result of the Pakistan Movement which aimed for the creation of an independent Muslim state.
The main Independence Day ceremony takes place in Islamabad, where the national flag is hoisted at the presidential and parliament buildings. The national anthem is then sung and speeches are made by the country's leaders. Usual events for the day include flag-raising ceremonies, parades, cultural events, and playing patriotic songs.
Although the main ceremony takes place in Pakistan, events are held all over the world.
