Ilford High Road hosted a food event last weekend for Black History Month.
The InIlford BHM Food Festival - held on Saturday, October 16 - also featured the Black Eagles performing an acrobatic routine complete with flame stunts.
Organised by InIlford, Saturday's offering also included African themed samba bands, print art activities, drum classes, food, merchandise and a UB40 tribute act.
The theme centred around paying homage to Redbridge's diversity, with each activity geared toward celebrating community and culture in the borough.
InIlford is provided by the Ilford BID, an organisation which aims to improve the town centre by working on behalf of almost 400 local businesses.
On October 30, they will be putting on a Halloween community event which will run from 11am-5pm.
The food festival was one of a range of activities and events organised across Redbridge for Black History Month, with other highlights including a digital art installation about reggae sound system culture and a workshop on the art of African head wrapping.
