A traditional English celebration wouldn’t be complete without some home-baked cakes from the East End WI.

There will also be performances by The London Music Hall Choir, the Tilbury Brass Band, Thames Brass Ensemble and Women Sing East, as seen on the programme.

This event is a V&A partnership with London Borough of Tower Hamlets.
