One Hackney Festival is going to be a big old street party with a carnival flava on the 21st July. Starting in Shoreditch and running throughout the borough, the Festival is the official Hackney salute to the Olympic torch, with festival events ending up in Clissold Park.
Hackney’s great and good will be involved in one way or another, with music from the Land of Kings, Passing Clouds, Bigga Fish, Martin Jay and Monobloco & Sargento Pimienta from Brazil to mention a few.
The beautiful Ankara design by Emamkoke Ukeleghe will be the festival signature fabric. And for those who would like to get involved with the parade, you can make your own accessories and outfits with the guidance of super stylista, Style Canteen.
