The event was jointly organised by Cuba Solidarity Campaign and CubaArtista and featured amazing Cuban food and Havana Club cocktails served up by the folk from bar Buena Vista.
The crowd packed the dance floor throughout the night and when the evening ended everyone made it clear they would be back again next year.
