Members of the Czech and Slovak community in Calderdale gathered together at the Jubilee Centre to celebrate Mikulas - an Eastern European version of St Nicholas.

The event saw 176 people attending, 106 children and 70 parents, and featured a Czech band playing traditional music and Christmas songs.

There was also a puppet show to promote oral health in the Czech and Slovak communities.

All the children received a small present and there also was a raffle with three prizes.
