In addition to all the other festivities, this year will feature the second annual Man vs Food chalenge hosted by the ever popular Harrow Food Friends.

Cllr Rashmi Kalubowila, one of the Harrow Food Friends, said: “Last year, the Harrow Food Friends were able to host Harrow’s first ever Man vs Food challenges and this year we’re looking forward to doing it all over again, with hot chillies, hot dogs and even crudités (sliced veg) for the young ones.

“If you can eat hot dogs and pizza at an insane pace, or if you can stomach some of the hottest chillies in the world, we want to see you there. There might be a prize in it for you!”
