Around 160 loyal fans of British Sea Power, a Brighton-based British indie band, swarmed through the doors of the Czech Embassy to enjoy a rock concert hosted by the Czech Centre. Instead of the usual lounge suits, guests were a little more creative in their attire at this diplomatic reception. The band raised the roof with their single Waving Flags, a song welcoming Central and East European migrants to the UK.
