Vegan night market and roller disco
London, events rarely come along like this.
Join me for a massive party this Thursday night (July 6, 2017) from 6pm as Hackney Downs Studios throws open its doors for the annual Open Studios event. This is going to be so much fun.
Hackney Downs Studios is known as the home of Hackney Downs Vegan Market and the upcoming London Vegan Beer Fest, but what a lot of people don’t realise is it is also home to a lot of artists, workshops, stores and artisan producers.
Yes, the studios are real studios!
For one night a year, Hackney Downs Studios lets you get behind the scenes by touring all of the spaces and getting up close and personal with all the artist spaces. You can even get hands on with artists, makers, illustrators, designers, potters, record labels, gin distillers, architects, video makers and more.
Try your hand at live screen printing or get crafty with weaving workshops. There will be roaming theatre performances, live painting, exclusive sample sales, installations and music, food, drinks and dancing.
But what’s in it for vegan food lovers?
Food on the evening comes in the form of a vegan mini night market. Buy and devour food from this wonderful collection of vegan traders:
- Battered – vegan fish and chips
- What The Pitta! – the finest doner kebabs in London
- Big V London – champion burger makers
- Lazy Boy Kitchen – decadent and beyond tasty comfort food
Need more to entice you down this Thursday?
There is a FREE roller disco taking place inside Hackney Showroom with a DJ and after party going on until midnight. Yes, a freakin’ roller disco that won’t cost you any money and they have skates to use on site!
It’s all sounds too good to be true. Hang out with artists behind the scenes, buy vegan street food, and get disco fever on roller skates. And it’s all for free!
You need to register for a free ticket online here so they know how many people are coming along. You can also RSVP/invite friends on the Facebook event page.
Extra note: Hackney Downs Studios is the site for the 5th annual London Vegan Beer Fest taking place on July 15, 2017. More info online here.
