Mexican procession in Barkingside? Must be Christmas

Find yourself a torch and head down to Barkingside for the lantern nativity walk happening on Sunday.

Taking inspiration from the Mexican tradition of Posada, wooden nativity figures will be paraded through the street.

The figures will be seeking shelter in shops and churches along the High Street to the sound of Christmas carols.

The meeting point is Manna House, High Street at 3pm and everyone is welcome.

The Mayor and Mayoress of Redbridge will be joining the procession.
