A harvest festival is marking the end of summer in the Olympic Park.

Harvest Stomp will celebrate the early days of autumn with fresh produce, a mobile farm and live music.

For the children, an educational farm will have sheep, chickens, goats, dogs and ducks for them to meet, and there’ll be arts and crafts stalls and garden games to keep them entertained.

A micro-brewery demonstration will take place for the adults, and live music will be provided by the Belles of London City and Scottish and Irish music specialists, License to Ceilidh.

The festival will pay homage to seasonal autumnal produce, with live cookery workshops and demos, a tasting table of bread and jam, and a range of vegan and vegetarian options.

The festival will take place near the Timber Lodge Cafe from 12-6pm on Sunday, September 23, and entry is free.
