The 'Didges on the Bridges' event was part of the City of London Festival which this year has a special focus on Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific.

Didjeridu players took up position on Blackfriars Bridge, Millennium Bridge, Southwark Bridge, London Bridge and Tower Bridge.

Next Monday Australia's foremost didjeridu player, William Barton, joins the choir of Southwark Cathedral in the European premiere of a new version of Peter Sculthorpe's Requiem.

• On Friday there will be the chance to see a Maori war canoe on the River Thames.
