A college will be kicking off the annual Loughton Town Festival next week by hosting a family fun day.

New City College Epping Campus on Borders Lane, Loughton, is welcoming residents to a day full of free entertainment and a chance to explore pursuing part-time courses.

Staff and students will be on hand running stalls giving guests an insight to college life from studying art and design to bricklaying and media production.

Janet Smith, principal of Epping Forest Campus, said: “Last year’s Fun Day was a great success and we can’t wait to welcome the local community back for an even bigger event.

“We have many exciting activities including bouncy castles, craft stalls, ice cream, BBQ, face painting and much more.”

New City College Epping Forest Campus’ Family Fun Day will take place on Saturday, May 25, 11am – 2pm.
