A festival which celebrates the Filipino culture is set to take place in East Tuddenham.

The Filipino Festival of Culture will feature activities from people in the community, including games for children and adults and the sale of Filipino delicacies.

Performers at the event will include a band made up of local Filipino nurses and carers, and singers who have travelled from places such as Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

Organiser Tess Ward said she expects there to be up to 1,000 attendees throughout the day.

'We have been running this event since 2010 and it is not just for Filipinos. It is open to everybody and it only takes place once a year. It is the biggest event we organise for people to meet and mingle and listen to some entertainment,' she said.
