One of Barking’s oldest buildings next week becomes the setting for a fun-filled summer fete.

The Grade I listed Eastbury Manor House hosts a range of free games and activities at the event on Sunday, August 19.

They include arts and crafts, croquet, outdoor games, face painting, ‘make your lemonade’ workshops and interesting stalls.

Kids can try their hand at archery with trained instructors for a small fee, while visitors enjoy live music performances from the Barking and Eastbury Concert Band.
