Presented by Greenwich Peninsula and HemingwayDesign, Urban Village Fete is a free, alternative, contemporary twist on the traditional summer fete. Having attracted more than 25,000 visitors in the past two years, 2017’s event looks to be a bigger, bolder celebration of the best in design, music, art, innovative events and modern craftsmanship, right at the heart of Greenwich Peninsula.
The free day out will feature a range of curated designer marketplaces, street food vendors, art & design workshops, unique pop-ups and a series of talks hosted by BBC Radio London’s Robert Elms. For music lovers, Gilles Peterson, the iconic British DJ and owner of Brownswood Recordings will be at the helm all day. There will be walkabout entertainment throughout and a line-up of interactive workshops for all ages including the chance to become a DJ for the day with The Charity Shop DJ.
