A Finding Dory zorbing pool and dance carnival will be at Westfield Stratford City this weekend and throughout August.

Billed as the “ultimate ‘weather-proof’ English park” by organisers, the nautical summer playground also features ice-cream stalls, face painting, hair braiding and Disney-themed attractions including a Disney Life gazebo.

Over the next few weeks, children can learn about life under the sea and learn to “speak whale” in a specially-created large board game.

Exhausted parents can take the weight off their feet by sampling rum tastings while they relax on the green grass surrounding the pool area.

The first Vogue Café pop-up in Western Europe will also be serving a special summer menu of salads and fashionable treats in the Village

For today and tomorrow only, a Big Dance carnival-style event features performances and participatory workshops for all the family in salsa, samba, flamenco, capoeira, dancehall, hula hoop and Bollywood features.
