Families can continue to bask in the sun at The Mayor’s Newham Show today with a second day of free entertainment, a fun fair and beach at Central Park.
Characters from the popular CBBC children’s show ZingZillas are the headline act at the main stage today.
They will be holding their own big Zing at 12.25pm and performing hits such as Bubble, Trouble Bhangra, and Do You Didgeridoo.
A variety of local acts will take to the stage afterwards and the talent finals for Time to Shine is at 2pm.
Newham Mayor Robin Wales said: “Time to Shine shows Newham’s got talent. The qualifying rounds have been tight and I can’t wait to see the finals.”
At Newham by the Seaside a beach has been put down complete with deck chairs, donkey rides and a helter skelter.
The event at the park along High Street South in East Ham also features a children’s area with everything from a bouncy castle to face painters and story tellers.
