Let the Handbag Toss, the 50m mince and the Space Hopper relay commence.

Money raised goes to GMFA (the gay men’s health charity) and Vauxhall community projects.

Last year, more than 10,000 people attended and organisers are expecting this year to be even busier.

Sun, Aug 26. 12pm-8pm, £6.50

Station | Tottenham Hal
