Tickets £10.

Love is... - Saturday 5-7pm

The event at Wanstead Youth Club, Elmcroft Avenue, is open to 16 to 25-year-olds.

Redbridge musicians will be performing as well as a dance group from University College London.


Love Yourself at Valentines - Sunday 11-3pm

Redbridge’s most romantic mansion in Emerson Road, Ilford, is reopening after the winter for a day of “pure indulgence and pampering”.
