Magic in West Ham Park casts spell over youngsters

Children were mesmerised in West Ham Park by magician Richard Pinner and Duncan his amazing talking dragon.

The event was the first in a series of summer events at The Bandstand which continue every day from 3pm to 4pm until Friday.

Alderman Bob Hall, Chairman of the City of London Committee responsible for the park, said: “This summer we have put together a series of free, fun-filled family events, which will give children and parents an opportunity to meet a variety of fun characters in the beautiful surroundings of West Ham Park.”

No bookings are necessary, just pack a picnic and turn up.
