A travelling petting farm will bring various farmyard friends to this year's Havering Show.
The Mini Farm offers a traditional experience for all ages and provides interactive fun with a variety of farm animals.
Visitors can feed, touch and stroke the animals while learning about their wider role within the countryside.
There is also the opportunity to encounter the likes of Peter the rabbit, Mikey the pygmy goat and mini pot-bellied pig duo Susie and Wendy.
Leader of Havering Council, councillor Damian White, said: "There is a great range of attractions on this year and a whole host of other talent and performances that will appeal to everyone in our borough.
"We look forward to seeing you there in August."
Alongside the mini farm, there is something for everybody with the main stage line-up including headliners Aswad and Toploader.

Aaron Uthman, London City Airport's community relations advisor, said: "As a close neighbour of Havering, London City Airport is proud to support the show, which is another example of the creativity and community spirit on our doorstep."
Tickets can be bought in advance online and cost £3 per day for adults and are free for children under 10.
If still available, tickets on the door over the two days in August will cost £4 per adult.
