Five fun things to do in east London this bank holiday weekend

By Stephanie Hartman

Make the east side of the city your base for the long weekend with these five top events.

NT’s Bank Holiday Terrace Re-launch Weekend, Netil House, Fri-Sun, free. Three days of late night fun with cocktails, smoked meats and a BBQ filling the terrace with the scents of summer. 

Vinery London pop-up, Look Mum No Hands! (Whitechapel branch), Sat, pay what you want. Sample some delicious wines and pay what you want at the end, depending on what you think the night was worth (and how much you drank).

Roof Garden Party With LongPlay & Friends, Dalston Roof Park, Sat, £16. LongPlay, Jasmin, Emilka, Paolo Tossio, Plectroom b2b Tear Of Joy and Bambi Rambo supply house and techno.

LG’s Paper-thin Home Instagram Workshop, Old Spitalfields Market, Sun, free. Join paper-cutting whizz Paperboyo, who’s been breaking the internet with pictures of his 2-D creations, for a special two-hour workshop teaching Londoners how to transform the capital’s landmarks with their own paper props.

Free From Festival, Old Spitalfields Market, Mon, £10. If your dietary requirements mean you spend a noticeable portion of your time squinting at ingredients lists, this food festival will be a chance to let loose.
