Over 3,000 people went to the Hewett Street Block Party last year and now it's your chance.
You can expect the best food, DJs and general fun times that London has to offer in the day long curated food court. The all-star foodie line up includes:
James Lowe & Brad McDonald
F.A.T. x Family
La Grotta Ices
Coins Junkyard Snack Bar
Rockwell House Rooftop Bar & BBQ
and more TBA
Bao London will be serving up a bespoke menu centered around the deep fried bao, with fillings including soy milk fried chicken and hot sauce. For pickle fans, Family brings us pork & fennel meatball sandwiches and kimchi and blue cheese grilled sandwiches, featuring F.A.T. cucumber & dill, fennel and kimchi hot sauce pickles. Sounding good already right? Don't worry not many days to go.
Renowned chefs James Lowe and Brad MacDonald are cooking up carnitas with salsa comal, they’ll also be pulling soft serve ice creams throughout the day. Rawduck, the Hackney sibling of Ducksoup in Soho, will have their famous reuben with wasabi mayo and anchovy & thyme pressed toasts with lemon & parmesan on the day.
Neighbours, Motherclucker will cook up traditional Southern fried chicken, marinated in sweet tea brine and coated in buttermilk, to be served with cornbread. Rockwell House welcomes Hewett Street Block Party visitors to their rooftop, where there’ll be a rum bar and smoky BBQ going. Grab a corndog from Coins Junkyard Snack Bar, and if sweet is more your thing make sure you head to La Grotta Ices, AKA Kitty Travers, who'll be whipping up what is arguably the best ice cream in London. Big statement we know, but with a selection that includes damson choc ices, green walnut & espresso spumoni (ice cream cakes) and fig leaf and raspberry sgroppini (prosecco slurpees) we’re sure you’ll agree with us.
And that’s just the food. We’ve lined up workshops and games throughout the day including:
- People of Print x Icon with live t-shirt printing
- Bow Tie Colouring with Charles Olive
- Puck Collective’s temporary tattoo parlour
- Get Rich or Tie Dye Trying with Gabriella Marina Gonzalez
- DunneFrankowski’s Barista Barber
- Yearbook Machine’s live photobooth
- Books and magazines from Ditto Press
- Musical furniture and “Plug + Play” interactive karaoke by the RCA
- Fountain of Youth’s coconut shy
- Aesop’s Tokyobike
... and don't forget the ANNUAL CHARITY TOMBOLA with prizes from Ace Hotel, Sager + Wilde, Uniform Wares, Modern Pantry and many, many more! All tombola proceeds will go to local charity Hackney Pirates, so you can feel good about playing too.
There's still the full DJ line up (and an exciting radio partnership!) to be announced, so keep your eyes peeled for that. RSVP now at www.hewettstreetblockparty.com for latest updates and free entry on the day.
