DAGfest, the annual festival celebrating Barking and Dagenham’s creativity, is over for another year.

Despite a clash with the World Cup quarter-finals, hundreds turned out to see the eclectic mix of entertainment in Dagenham Village.

The festival, in its fourth year, included music performances, acrobatics and a rendition of Swan Lake from The Royal Opera House. The Tangled Feet theatre company performed That Parking Show and there were dances from James Wilton Dance.

Lindsey Pugh from Creative Barking and Dagenham, the project which helps run the festival, said: “It was fantastic to see local residents enjoying a range of activities, celebrating the local creative talent and enjoying international outdoor arts and street performance.

“We would like to thank our volunteers and audiences for making DAGFEST 2018 such a great day.”

Creative Barking and Dagenham is a six-year project which began in 2014, which aims to enable the borough’s residents to create and commission artistic projects.
