A traditional village fete with a coconut shy and tombola takes place in Hoxton Square this Saturday, organised by the likes of trendy restaurants Hoi Polloi and Bistrotheque.
Hackney Village Fayre is a a celebration for all the family of the borough’s food and creative scene, and there will also be a waiters’ race, art from Princess May and St Monica’s Primary Schools, face painting and food and drinks stalls.
All profits will be shared between Magic Breakfast, a charity that started in Hackney and which provides free, healthy breakfasts to hungry school children, and Park Hack, a charity that invests funds back into green spaces in the borough.
Fayre-goers will be able to sample food from MEATmission, 8 Hoxton Square, Hoi Polloi, Bistrotheque, The Panthers Whiskers, and alcoholic drinks will be on sale from Hoxton Square’s own cocktail specialists, Happiness Forgets, and craft beer supplier, Biercraft.
Visitors can buy tickets on arrival which will act as ‘money’ accepted by all the participating stalls and attractions.
