An arts centre is fundraising to offer families to experience a day of festive theatre, food and fun for only £1.
Stratford Circus Arts Centre in Theatre Square, Stratford, will open its doors to people facing challenges, providing a first taste of theatre for children from Newham and Tower Hamlets.
Director Tania Wilmer said: "As well as providing a delicious hot meal, Full Hearts Full Tummies is about feeding imaginations and making sure everyone from our community feels welcome in our arts centre."
Full Hearts Full Tummies is the centre's annual Christmas project for which it wants to raise £12,000.

Part of the money will be raised via The Big Give Christmas Challenge, a nationwide week-long campaign which doubles all donations.
