This year's local summer festival is right around the corner! The third annual DAGFEST is coming to Dagenham Village on Saturday 15th July. DAGFEST serves to bring music, street theatre, dance, and outdoor activities together for all families to enjoy. The Mayor of Dagenham, Barking and Dagenham Councillors, and Jon Cruddas MP have all attended the event in the past and highly encourage residents to attend.

The event is hosted by Creative Barking and Dagenham, a group with the primary initiative of giving artists an outlet to create and advertise their work to the greater community. Through DAGFEST and other events during the year, they serve to promote the borough as a place where entertaining, innovative art can flourish.

Jon Cruddas MP for Dagenham and Rainham commented: "DAGFEST is one of the best local events of the summer in Barking and Dagenham. It's a great opportunity for families from across the borough to come together and enjoy activities, performances and food from all corners of our community. This event gets bigger and better every year, and I hope the turnout will be bigger than ever next weekend."
