A free day festival featuring live music performances, street food, and even a local history tour will take place in Chingford Mount tomorrow.

The Chingford Mount Festival will feature sustainable handmade fashion and homeware products from local independent craft and artisan traders, while street food traders from Walthamstow Sunday Social Market will be around to cater to hungry stomachs.

Meanwhile, the historian Peter Ashan will be leading an afternoon walk through the area on local black and migrant history at 1pm.

Live music will be served by the band Replay, and by local young performers who will present a set arranged by local music teacher Aziz from Walthamstow music academy 1Note2Notes.

The festival will also include a mini green roof making workshop for young people led by Planet Compassion, while experienced bike mechanics will be on hand to check repair and fix any bike problems.

The free festival will run from 11am to 4pm at Albert Crescent, Chingford Mount, E4 6SH
