London’s Favourite Free Festival is back at Greenwich Peninsula, with headline acts Mr Scruff and Bradley Zero set to make this one to remember!

The Urban Village Fete returns to Greenwich Peninsula for its 7th year, with a cracking line-up of entertainment, DJ’s, workshops, and talks - all for free!

Alongside a packed programme of free entertainment throughout the day, there’s a star-studded line-up of DJ’s keeping the party going, with headline sets from special guests, Mr Scruff and Bradley Zero taking over Central Park.

After dark, party-goers can head to Canteen for more drinks and dancing on a heated indoor terrace.

Kicking off at 11am, there will be live performances, arts and crafts, food, markets, music and more with something for everyone to enjoy and get involved with throughout the day.

Hosted in the heart of Greenwich Peninsula, a riverside neighbourhood with art and culture embedded in its fabric, the event attracts thousands of people from all over London for a free day out like no other in the capital.

Design District will once again host Robert Elms in the Talks Tent, to lead insightful conversation and spark debate across a range of topics from Sport to Sustainability.

For those wanting to fill their bellies as well as their brains, Canteen Food Hall offers an eclectic mix of street food from 6 different vendors, along with freshly shaken cocktails, cold beer and plenty of fizz to quench the thirst.

The food quarter at the fete extends beyond Canteen, through the Bureau restaurant and along the park where hungry visitors can feast on homemade and locally sourced goodies from the likes of Cakehole and Pasta e Basta. For those wanting to get their hands dirty, this year’s programme of interactive workshops will not disappoint. From origami to knitting, and even a canine circus, big kids, little kids and furry friends are all invited to get involved, and bring the spirit of the Fete alive through participation and collaboration. 

The Urban Village Fete has helped showcase over 400 small independent businesses, generating a new-found customer base and revenue for these companies in excess of £1.5million. With small businesses struggling in the current climate, this support from the Greenwich Peninsula community is a lifeline for many. Easily accessible by tube, bus, boat, car, foot and even cable car, you won’t want to miss this free day out at Greenwich Peninsula.
