The public is being invited to see animals from an award-winning city farm at a shopping centre later this week.

The Easter-themed event at The Mall in Walthamstow will feature a range of traditional and exotic animals from Brooks Farm at Skeltons Lane, Leyton.

Children will be able to see and hold rabbits, chicks, guinea pigs, tortoises and a sheepdog, as well as other exotic breeds such as a Pygmy African hedgehog and bearded dragons.

The three day event starting this Thursday will run from 11am to 4pm.
