Two things you can do tomorrow…

(That’s Sunday 3 September)

Mudchute Annual Fun Dog Show 1-4pm

Last year’s best in show Thistle from mudchute.org

There is a prize for the dog with the wiggliest tail – this alone makes me want to go Mudchute Farm tomorrow afternoon. Toddlers? Dogs? What could possibly go wrong?

In between admiring the pooches (prize-winning or otherwise) you can enjoy games, facepainting and cake. Anything else?

Why would you need anything else?

Story Spectacular at Victory Park, Stratford 12noon-4pm

Alternatively if dogs aren’t your thing, make your way to Victory Park, where storytellers from Discover will be performing, ‘Aliens love underpants’. There’s also face-painting, plus the chance to climb aboard a real life fire engine.

Find out more here.

You can also pick up a Tail Trail from Signorelli’s – the brightly coloured map will take you around the area, sparking your imagination as you go.

Victory Park is a small patch of green that’s now surrounded by flats for people lucky enough to live on the edge of the Olympic park. There are sometimes events held there as a local community starts to develop in London’s newest postcode (E20).
