The final line-up of this year's return of the Chingford Village Festival has been announced. 

Set to return on June 28, the all-day summertime festival in and around Chingford Green in Station Road will see music entertainment and acts perform across six venues situated along the high street. 

Over 34 musical acts have signed up to perform from The Choristers of Chingford Parish Church to the Epping Forest Bagpipe Band. 

The free festival, now in its 20th year, will be officially opened at midday by London Assembly member Jennette Arnold OBE, who has said she is 'delighted' it has returned after it was cancelled in 2013.

Dozens of small businesses and voluntary organisations will be setting up stalls on the green with donuts, pimms, burritos and real ale on offer.

Besides Chingford green, entertainment will be held at St Peter and St Pauls Church, Loco Lounge, Mornington Hall, and Vestry Hall. 

Ms Bull, 60, has worked effortlessly over the last six months to bring the festival together, and says there is still availability for stall hire. 

"It's good to be back and I almost feel it was worth leaving it a year because of the demand and excitement it has drummed up this year," said Ms Bull. 

In collaboration with the festival, volunteer Joanna Moncrieff will be holding a sponsored walk through Chingford from 12pm to 2pm on June 28.   

The Guardian is supporting Ms Bull by sponsoring the event aimed at attracting tens of thousands of visitors next month.

Good to see it back after last years cancellation. Best of luck to the organisers and participants. Fingers crossed for a bit of sunshine, and I'm sure it will be a great success.

Hopefully Loco Lounges' arrangements for entertainment will be a little bit more civil then the last time they appeared in the WFG

This event was a bit rubbish last year and I hope it is better organised regarding safety contingency.
