The aim of the party was to raise money for Medical Aid for Palestinians, with the organisers revealing that a total of £935 has been brought in so far.

They said: "We’re blown away after the event and all the support we have been shown in the build up to it - community solidarity is power.

"Thank you all again and a special shout-out to the workshop facilitators, musicians, bar staff, photographers, DJs, members of Furness Multi-Cultural Community Forum and Youth club, and Barrow Underground Music Society - we wouldn’t have pulled this off without you all."
