Flamingo Fairs will return to Wanstead Library’s Churchill Hall on 30 October (11am to 4pm; free entry) for a vintage-and-more-themed event.
“Using artistic licence, the flamingo is depicted here flying phoenix-like with the heat of the pandemic behind her. But it emerges, according to Google, that the flamingo’s fiery plumage may have inspired the phoenix legend. Sceptical? Well, just look a the flamingo’s Latin name: Phoenicopteridae,” said organiser Donna Mizzi, who founded the fair 12 years ago.
