Sunday 7th August, Victoria Park, Hackney

Victoria Park’s Apple Cart Festival is a feast for the eyes, ears and feet. Organised by the people that bring us Field Day, it’s got a more leftfield flavour including comedy, dance, magic (yes, magic) and cabaret as well as the usual, yet fairly unusual musical fare. There is promise of food and fairy tales, clothes sales and carousels as well as a load of balearics.
