A celebration will be held this weekend in Chingford to mark ‘Small Business Saturday’.

‘Tinsel, Tidings and Treats’ will include live entertainment from a brass band and a DJ, performances by a choir, the Christmas lights being switched on and a good dose of festive cheer.

Santa will arrive at 3pm to hand out presents to children and adults will be offered free mulled wine and mince pies.

It will be the second year the south Chingford community will hold the event.

It will take place, regardless of the weather, on Saturday, December 1, from 2pm to 5.30pm, off Albert Crescent in Chingford Mount, opposite Lily’s Florist.
