EAST Festival returns this week with 6 days of creative and cultural events taking place from Barbican to Stratford, Docklands to Hackney and all the bits in between.
There's a lot happening. Boris' office have been busy sticking as many things under the EAST 2010 umbrella as possible. As they say, "key for 2010 are architecture, minimalism and the Asian subcontinent, which are explored through music, cinema, theatre, visual arts, literature and even sport." I.e. it's a disparate hodge podge but there's bound to be something you like whether it's part of Do Something Different Weekend, the regular First Thursdays, the pretty special sound East Commonwealth Games or cycling between free gigs.
