It’s All Happening… Bethnal Green Festival

Where: Bethnal Green’s Gallery Cafe
When: Saturday 23rd June.

It’s All Happening… It’s an all day event… It’s at the lovely Gallery cafe on Old Ford Road (which by the way serves up an excellent brownie), AND all profits to charity.

It’s a day of their favourite things (It’s All Happening Music), and these are some of them… Folk music, indie bands, spoken word, poetry, theatre, a craft market, art display and dancing.

Headlining is the Communion signed Alessi’s Ark, along with Soulmates Never Die and Silent Devices, and on the spoken word stage the bill is topped by Ruby Kid. Early Doors Disco, who make their home at the Kings Cross Drink Shop Do will be finishing off the night with their bedtime friendly approach to partying!

Looks like a wonderful line up with an fun day of doing, dancing and having a good time away from the overcrowded Hackney Festival on Saturday taking over Hackney Marshes with soggy pop.

It runs from 1pm to 11pm, and tickets are £8 in advance HERE or £10 on the door.

Culture: Films from the Chapel

A simple idea, but a good one…

Each month a crowd turns up at the Gallery Café with a particular film theme in mind. They wait, pensive, having voted for the film they want to watch beforehand on the website. It’s a really nice way of enjoying the film experience before the experience. Building up some excitement!

Previous screenings have included ‘The Towering Inferno’, ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’ and ‘Coming to America’.

The next ‘Films from the Chapel’ event will be on Tuesday 26 July at The Gallery Cafe Chapel in Bethnal Green, and the theme is ‘The Summer of Love’.
