With live music, a silent disco and a DJ set providing the soundtrack to your night, this is London’s newest and hottest micro-festival, with the added benefit of funds raised at the event going to support Street Child’s work in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria and Nepal, helping some of the world’s most vulnerable children to go to school.

Tickets range in price from £55 to £70 (VIP tickets available) and include three main courses from a choice of five vendors: Bian Dang, Club Mexicana, MyPie, Prairie Fire BBQ and Hank’s Po Boys. Fifteen mouthwatering plates will tantalise your tastebuds, including 16hr hickory-smoked barbecued brisket sliders, and Taiwanese-style slow braised pork belly in a soft steamed buns. Vegans need not fear – 100% BBQ jackfruit tacos will fill you up, amongst many more options.

For dessert, South East Cakery has you covered – from salted caramel brownies, to mini berry pavlovas; a signature cocktail; games & entertainment; live music; silent disco; an auction of exclusive prizes; and a DJ. What more could you want?

Live music on the night will be provided by must-see artist Kyan, whose raw vocals have been compared to those of Frank Ocean, and blend alt soul, indie electronic beats and classic lyric-driven compositions to bring an altogether new sound; and the incredible Bee Bakare, a Nigeria-born British soul singer-songwriter whose upbeat, yet vulnerable and heart-felt songs take you on an emotional journey.

VIP tickets include: VIP welcome drink and canapés and exclusive access to the VIP area. With a plethora of street food events to choose from this summer, support Street Child and help them guarantee a child their place in the classroom.

A powerful piece on the nature of masculinity, war, gender roles and the essential unreliability of religious faith, ‘The Castle’ benefits from a powerhouse cast and a stripped-back set, making the most of the Space’s environment.
