Roman Road Winter Festival
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
The road that runs straight (obviously) from Bethnal Green to the southern edge of Hackney Wick will get a jolly makeover for this four-day festival of music, shopping, movies and Christmassy fun. Local shops will open late on the Thursday, offering free drinks and discounts. St Paul's Old Ford will host a Winter Warmer Gig on Friday night (£3). Saturday will involve street performers, discounted shopping, a Santa's Grotto and the Christmas light switch-on (4.30pm). Free festive fun on Sunday includes craft workshops, a fancy dress photobooth, mulled wine, a gift market, street food stalls and plenty of carolling. There'll be season-appropriate film screenings all four days. Visit the Roman Road website for details of times and locations.
