6th Place – London Borough of Barking & Dagenham

The London Borough of Barking & Dagenham were looking to win big this year, with their traditional take on the 2018 theme ‘Showtime – Roll Up, Roll Up, to the Greatest Show on Earth’. 

Their entry. ‘Fun Under the Big Top’. focused on the World of traditional circus entertainment. Mini Clowns, acrobats stilt-walkers and magicians were followed by a fantastic stage set. The judges were thoroughly impressed and voted the borough as the 5th best entry, awarding them £5,000.

Students from Barking & Dagenham College featured in the entry, followed by the local police cadets and Barking & Dagenham Ford Motors were also on hand to help make their entry a special one. The £5,000 prize money will be given to the Mayor’s specially chosen charities, which include, the British Heart Foundation and local disability charity DABD.

We would like to thank everyone that took part in the Barking & Dagenham Borough entry and congratulate them on their success.
