GDIF's afternoon Ignite! programme in Woolwich is followed by this year's finale - a spectacular fusion of percussion and awesome fireworks from the French company Les Commandos Percu and the Spanish street theatre group Deabru Beltzak.

Seemingly out of nowhere, drummers march towards each other in a wild parade which culminates in a theatrically staged fusion of percussion and pyrotechnics, ensuring this year's festival goes out with a bang!

From 21:00 enjoy performances by Oduduwa Talking Drummers and Drummers Delight
