The council’s annual shindig is open to those aged 70 and over – and there are 100 spaces available for the Islington Assembly Hall banquet.
The Mayor of Islington and his fellow councillors will help run the event, where the community elders can enjoy food, drink and other festive treats.

“As ever, I am so excited to welcome local residents to the Town Hall and look forward to an afternoon of lots of food, fun and joy.”
The festive feasts have been running since 2010.
