The largest Urban Village Fete is returning to Greenwich for it's fifth year, this weekend.

On May 19, one of London's biggest free events will be kick-starting the Greenwich Peninsula summer cultural programming.

This is a Summer fete with a twist and will be a celebration of creativity, culture and community.

Curated by Hemingway Design, the fete celebrates its 5th year by bringing together music, dance, comedy, workshops, talks, arts, crafts and food for a fun-filled day for all ages.

The day will be headlined by DJ Gilled Peterson along with performances from Jazz Re:Freshed on the main stage; display your turntable prowess on the Family stage as Charity Shop DJ host the Urban Village Fete Eurovision DJ Contest; and for those with a love of London, go listen to Robert Elms debate the ‘future of working in the City’.

There will be colourful walkabout entertainment such as the cheeky Sniffer Dogs causing mischief with their tongue-in-cheek performances, and a huge line-up of interactive workshops suitable for all ages.

There will also be model making and storyboarding from award winning Wallace & Gromit creators Aardman Animation and drawing techniques from Sprayskool / Ted Draws.

You can also test those dance skills and shake that booty with the Land of a Thousand Dances where you’ll be taught to Floss, Harlem Shake, do the Robot or just do it Gangnam style... all courtesy of Greenwich Dance.

Workshops will also cater for foodies with classes in Fermenting and even making a Smoker.

If you want to get your swag on there’ll also be a host of stalls with cool crafts and clothing by local designer makers.

And of course if you are peckish or need to satiate that thirst, there’ll be a variety of refreshments and tasty things to savour from some of London’s finest street food vendors.

Having attracted over 30,000 visitors last year, 2019’s Urban Village Fete promises to be bigger and bolder and even more fun.
