Day of the dead in Wanstead

Redbridge is hosting a novel arts event on Saturday in Wanstead inspired by the Mexican Day of the Dead festival.

The free event will include arty activities in the library from 1-5pm followed by a grand costume parade after 5pm. Organisers say: “All adults and children are encouraged to come dressed to party. Why not channel your inner Frida Kahlo, or James Bond from Spectre? Or how about dressing as a colourful skeleton inspired by the films Coco and The Book of Life? Add some lights or glow sticks and you’re ready to go! There will be prizes for the best dressed.”

Tickets for some events are limited and can be booked via Eventbrite. More details are also available on the Vision website here.
