Dragons and Punch and Judy are making their way to the borough today as residents come together to celebrate St George’s Day.

Sir Lupin will be searching for his dragon in Ilford Town Centre from 3-6pm, with his helpers handing our England flags and other St George-themed goodies.

Meanwhile, a punch and Judy show will be put on at Redbridge Central Library, Clements Road, Ilford at noon, 2pm and 4pm.

The show will come complete with crocodile and sausages, of course.

At the picturesque Valentines Mansion, children will be challenge to find a dragon’s egg.
