Father Christmas, elves and even the gingerbread man will be in Barkingside tomorrow to get the festive season started.

The Better Barkingside at Christmas event is taking place from 3pm to 7pm.

The free event, in Barkingside High Street and inside Fullwell Cross Library, will feature Santa’s grotto, a gingerbread man festival trail, face painting and poetry, children’s crafts and an open house exhibition in the library from 5pm to 7pm.

Better Barkingside is part of a scheme to improve the High Street through a £1.9m grant from the Greater London Authority.
