PUBLISHED: 17:00 12 July 2019
A Bucks Fizz spin off is swapping the land of make believe for Barking to headline the One Borough Festival.
Revellers will be making their minds up about whether to dress in ripped jeans, bomber jackets or neons before the 1980s themed party starts with The Fizz due to appear in Parsloes Park, Dagenham, on Saturday.
Cllr Saima Ashraf said: "One Borough Festival is always such a fun and fantastic day for all the family, with so much to do and this year's 80s themed event will be no exception."
The band is made up of former Bucks Fizz bandmates Cheryl Baker, Mike Nolan and Jay Aston who reformed for a new beginning in 2004.
The weekend includes a children's party with a meet and greet with children's favourite, Peppa Pig, dance acts, high-flying vehicle displays and jousting.
