Celebrate east London life at this fete held across nine conjoined sites in the parish grounds of St. John at Hackney Church. Hackney Heart Market have curated a great selection of food and drink stalls including The Pie Chart, Tonkotsu, Dalston Cola and East London Liquor Company. A DJ stage from Visions Festival will provide the perfect soundtrack for alfresco dining and neighbouring club/venue Olso are offering 20 percent off food for fete goers too. The front garden of the church hosts a mobile farm complete with donkey rides, a petting zoo and the annual Hackney Dog Show where local dogs are invited to take part in a fashion parade. Kids can enjoy coconut shies, the Hackney Playbus and activities in the Secret Garden hosted by Hackney Children's Theatre, Mimbre Circus and more. Other highlights include music stages programmed by London Fields Radio, Shoreditch Radio and Hackney Empire, as well as a performance inside the church itself by the Hackney Voices choir. The event is free with all proceeds going to the local Night Shelter and Food Bank.
