Roman Road Summer Festival 2016 had everyone dancing in the streets as you can see in this lovely little video, made by local resident Roman Koblov.
A snap shot of the day, this video shows the crowds who flocked to the third Roman Road Festival and enjoyed shopping at the Urban Makers East designer-maker fair, eating from the many street food stalls and being entertained on stage and street by local performers and entertainers including Sunday Assembly East End, Cameroonian singer and guitarist Muntu Valdo, soul and funk band Freddie and the Freeloaders, rising stars from ELAM, Bangladeshi folk dance troop Showmi Daz and psychedelic dance troopThe Action Men.
The children had a lot of fun too with Pearly King and Queen craft stalls, Match Women hat making, magician Professor Palmermoff, the spectacular stilt walkers, and cheeky turns from the Cockney Sparras and the Lady of the Mannah wiv ‘er best mate Doreen.
