Urban Village Fete at Greenwich Peninsula

Event preview

URBAN Village Fete presents a contemporary twist on the traditional village fair.

Taking place on Sunday, May 10, 2015, in Greenwich Peninsula, one of the capital’s most exciting new districts and set to become ‘London’s ultimate village’, it will celebrate the best in design, music, art, innovative events and modern craftsmanship.

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.
