The fairground is coming to town thanks to the clever folk behind Street Feast, who have masterminded an exciting new project which sees an abandoned warehouse in Haggerston, East London, transformed into a magical wonderland.
The event space will be divided into 3 levels, each one showcasing the best of the capital, and will include street food, live music acts, masterclasses, talks, inspirational guest speakers and much more!
Brands like WAH! Nails, Run Dem Crew and Field Day will also host take-over days on the first floor where they exhibit some of the freshest, up-and-coming talent on the music scene. Love Bullets will host the launch weekend which will be reminiscent of their takeovers at Shangri-La field.
The middle level will offer a more chilled vibe where guests can relax and enjoy things like the Thai massage hut, cupcake decorating and having Chang Beer foosball matches whilst leaving the kids in the craft area. Guests can also get involved by taking part in workshops including one on 'sustainability for our creative lives', challenging creative thinking and generally becoming a more enriched person, sort of.
The top floor is the Fairground Diner where the majority of the food will be served. It won’t be bags of candy floss and popcorn that you may imagine but rather a changing roster of left-field restaurants and chefs. Street Feast favourites including Yum Bun and Baba G will be available in the two lower floors so you don’t have to climb to the top floor if you don’t feel inclined to, but just so you know, it does offer spectacular views across East London (perfect for a selfie).
The weekend launch takes place 12-13th April and the Fairground will last 10 weekends from then.
