The return of Wanstead Festival in 2021 promises "a lively afternoon of entertainment" and "buzzing atmosphere".
Not-for-profit organisation Vision Redbridge Culture and Leisure has announced it is bringing the community back together again with the annual celebration at Christchurch Green Recreation Ground.
A Vision spokesperson said: "Everyone is invited to come along to enjoy a lively afternoon of entertainment. Be sure not to miss the talk of the town and save the date.
"If you have never been before, the atmosphere is buzzing with happy people enjoying the festivities of the day, whatever the weather, rain or shine."
The festivities are due to start at 11am on Sunday, September 12, with the fun continuing until 6pm.

The centre stage is the main attraction of the day so the advice from Vision is to bring a blanket or chair, sit back, relax and watch artists performing various music genres from pop to rock.
"You will be amazed at the talent we have here in Redbridge," the spokesperson said.

Food and refreshments available include speciality coffee and cakes plus a selection of beverages available from the festival bar.
No booking is required for the free event, with festival-goers invited to just turn up.
