TRADERS are getting ready in London's East End for Britain's biggest curry festival.
The two-week Brick Lane Curry extravaganza opens on Sunday with exotic food, culture and the full flavours of the East, running until October 10.
The buzzing street festival of cuisine and al fresco dining with eclectic music, dance and street art performers also includes snake charmers, ushers in traditional Indian costumes and stalls with unique Bangladeshi snacks and sweets.
Organisers in the famous 'curry mile' are expecting 60,000 visitors on its opening day for what has become an annual cultural and gastronomic institution in its own right.
