This weekend there are not one… not two… but three free events a short walk away. Let’s hope the sun makes an appearance! (The forecast is for showers on Saturday and sunny intervals on Sunday).
On Saturday 18th June, midday at Spitalfields City Farm there’s a Family Day: Folk at the Farm – an afternoon of music and dance for the whole family. Workshops include an early years session with Zoe Palmer, tabla session with Manjeet Singh, clog stepdancing, folk singing with Kerry Fletcher, (they’re free but need to be booked), and there’s also a musical treasure hunt designed by Duncan Chapman, face painting, free play, farm tours. Take a picnic and make an afternoon of it! (This event is organised with the Spitalfields Music Festival). For more details and booking info check out the website
Also on Saturday, Team Green Britain is holding a Cycle Day at Hackney City Farm from 11am until 4pm. There’ll be a whole host of bike fun, including Pedal Powered DJs from Magnificent Revolution, Dr Bike by Bike Yard East, Hackney City Farm’s Bikeoke, Bicycle Cinema’s bike games, scrap heap challenge and slow races!

On Sunday 19th Junea Carrom Marathon takes place on Arnold Circus from 1pm until 5pm. There’ll be open boards for all to play, and instructors for anyone who is new to the game. Samosas, masala chai and lassi will be on hand for sustenance of players and spectators alike. The main event of the day is Carrom Marathon Man, the Carrom Cafe and Shop’s star player, who will attempt 50 games one after the other. If he does it £1,000 goes to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Come along and cheer him on! Full details are on the Friends of Arnold Circus website
