This May the Urban Village Fete is coming to Greenwich Peninsula – one of the capital’s most exciting new districts and set to become ‘London’s ultimate village’. Presenting a contemporary twist on the traditional village fair and celebrating the best in design, music, art, innovative events and modern craftsmanship, the fair is taking place on Sunday 10 May 2015.
The inaugural event will draw on local suppliers, designers and performers as well as offering a forum for top local talent, all set against a range of established design stalls and food trucks with an international flavour. The free day out will feature a range of curated designer marketplaces, street food, design hubs, artist interventions, diverse and quirky events, art and design workshops, walkabout entertainment, music, dance classes and unique pop-ups.
Organised in association with Hemingway Design, Urban Village Fete will be the first free public event staged in Peninsula Garden, a new public garden for London designed by Alys Fowler and Thomas Hoblyn in association with Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio.
Local residents and visitors from further afield can take part in many of the Fete’s events including the Best of British Design marketplace curated by Best of Britannia, a Craft and Designer Maker marketplace, Street Food sellers, Dance Classes courtesy of Swing Patrol, and DJ sets from atop a classic London Routemaster including Gilles Peterson, as well as many more attractions and things to see and do!
