Shoreditch Festival pitches up in Shoreditch Park this coming weekend, with music, arts, fireworks, dogs and words trampling the sun scorched grass and diverting the Hoxton massive northwards a notch.
Friday 16th July: Free Proms in the park between 7.30-9.30pm with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra + fireworks!
Saturday 17th July: Arts, dance, Shoreditch Bark Dog Show and Shoreditch Spa, stalls and more, all day in the Park
Sunday 18th July: World In Motion focuses on the kids with live music, dance, spoken word and film
And it's all free. Take sunscreen + the obligatory blanket/picnic.
Away from the baking park there's The Shoreditch Consul: Interactive Guerilla Opera that asks you to bring your own torch - tickets, £10/7.50 (conc for local residents too). And Sunday is World Listening Day with East London Soundscapes; "a music and dance event that seeks to explore, embrace and respond to sounds heard in the East End of London". Book tickets (£10/7.50) and meet at Shoreditch Park ready to discover a secret local location.
