The Mayfair Exhibition Centre, in High Road, Chadwell Heath,held its grand opening with the Mayor of Redbridge Cllr Barbara White attending.

The owners put on a free lunch for residents and gave them a tour of the building’s beautiful interior.

The centre was built in the 1940s as a cinema, and the new owners ensured they kept the original architect’s style.

Director Wazid Hassan Shelim told the Recorder: “It was fantastic, a great success, we had around 800 people visiting in the evening and the Mayor of Redbridge.

“Keeping the original building the same as the old one, that was our main concern.”
