Happy 4th birthday to Number 90

4 days of partying beckons for guests of the canal-side venue Number 90 in Hackney Wick. SEEN will be in attendance, of course, for special guest DJs, live music, interactive entertainment and lots of lovely food and drink. Each day will celebrate a different theme relating to the world of music, art and dance. Entrance is free.

Thursday 1st March will be centred around World Music – a good choice in multicultural London, featuring The Haggis Horns (jazz, funk and soul), Toytown Hustle (alt pop) and gypsy group Dila V and the Oddbeats (folk) with other acts to be announced. Guests will also rifle through a vintage clothes stall and indulge in live painting sessions with the Number Gallery artists to create live art murals.

Friday 2nd March sees the third edition of Womb 2: Women of Music Business headed up by Capital Xtra’s Coco Cole, My Bad Sister, local legends Four Tit, the upcoming Laraine James, with Aziz and Sisu Crew. There will be a dance show by Little Gay Brother and resident DJ Lucid Stannard. Womb 2 celebrates women in music, art, fashion and business. An entirely female line-up with the hottest talent around promises an inspirational evening of female-focused film screenings and DJ technique workshops.

On Saturday 3rd March, Number 90 will throw a Block Party on the canal-side terrace of La Terazza with the Godfather of club culture Norman Jay (MBE). With two performances, Norman will be bringing his ‘good-times’ sound. He will be joined by Backtobasics resident Tristan da Cunha, and Ron Basejam of Crazy P for Winter Sun, an event to bring a good time to all whatever the weather.

Guests will be smashing piñatas, engaging in trickery with a magician or just drinking fabulous cocktails. Sunday 4th will be the day for winding down, enjoying live music courtesy of The Pop-Up Choir, a jam session from Re.Wind and a live electronic set from This Is A Recording. Guests are promised Number 90’s new summer menu with burgers, salads and much more.

Number 90 is throwing the party not just to celebrate another successful year but to pay tribute to their neighbours, brand affiliates and of course, the customers, all of whom make this Hackney Wick venue such a vital part of the canal-side community.
