Event organiser Ciaran White said: "We wanted to create a magical Christmas attraction for the people of Havering, giving them a cost-effective option for a Christmas outing right on their doorstep.

“I have been overwhelmed by the efforts of our team of volunteers – what they have created is truly spectacular.”
