Experience: philippine fiesta

There'll be a South-East Asian feel about the South Bank tomorrow when celebrations to commemorate 100 years of Philippine independence come to London's Coin Street Festival. From lunchtime, a pageant featuring hand-held floats and bright costumes will be followed by a host of free musical events, including the Ballet Philippines (left), which combines traditional and contemporary dance, and a 30-strong group, Lahing Kayumanangi, who perform indigenous Filipino music and dance. A historical fashion show, workshops and children's entertainment are also promised along with arts and crafts and food stalls.

Bernie Spain Gardens and Gabriel's Wharf, SE1 (0171-401 2255) tomorrow, 1-7pm, free
