From remote-controlled chaos to exploding paint bombs, let your creative juices flow as Urban Canvas brings its unique style of painting to the high street tomorrow.

Not for the beige of thinkers, the experience promises to be Technicolor and will use cuddly toys and throwing techniques to make a masterpiece.

The fun will then continue with giant garden games in Ken Aston Square and face painting and storytelling in Fullwell Cross Library.

Also keep an eye out for interactive comedy duo Pearlie and Dean – two larger-than-life cinema usherettes who will be handing out sweets.

For a fun-packed day celebrating the best of Barkingside, head to Ken Aston Square, 140 High Street, between 11am and 3pm.
