The sights and sounds of Asian culture came to the Boyn Grove Community Resource Centre on Wednesday last week.
In a special day of activities for service users at the Courthouse Road centre for adults with learning disabilities, performers from the Dancing Nikita Company and a Dhol Foundation drummer came along to put on a show to the delight of the audience.
Guests also enjoyed a selection of Asian food and henna hand painting, while the Mayor of Windsor and Maidenhead, Cllr Andrew Jenner, and Cllr David Coppinger, Royal Borough cabinet member for adult services and health, paid a visit.
Day service manager Julia Harris said: "It really was a fantastic day. Fundamentally it was about recognising the individual needs of people with learning difficulties from different cultural backgrounds."
She added it was hoped the event would become a more regular fixture in the centre's calendar.
