Good vibes and relaxed times are coming back to the borough next year.

One Love Festival, the biggest reggae festival across Europe, is returning to Hainault Forest Country Park, for a celebration of peace, love and unity.

Dan Wiltshire, the festival founder, said the three-day event from September 1 to 3 next year will be “bigger and better” than before.

He said: “We are pleased to be celebrating this achievement with two key movers and shakers.

“The first being Bunny “Striker” Lee who is celebrating his 50th years in reggae.”

The Bob Marley inspired dub music bonanza was previously hosted at the park, in Romford Road, Hainault, in 2010 and 2011, before returning permanently to the borough last year.
