The Star by Hackney Downs
35 Queensdown Road, E5 8NN London, United Kingdom
Community-hub-pub The Star by Hackney Downs brings to you our snazzy Summer Fête. We venture a short saunter away to our grassy doorstep Hackney Downs Park for some village vibes with a city twist.

First off there’s a dog show. So that’s at least half of you hooked. If you think your pooch is perfect, please email [email protected] to take part. Otherwise, oggle the doogos and cheer for your fave woofer!

For those of you that prefer to care for inanimate things, bimble around our plant sale by Hackney Community Gardeners for a cuddly cactus, or have a rummage for a retro find at our vintage market — this is Hackney, after all. You will find plenty of other stall to take a look around.

Street food is also a thing with a range of different flavours on offer Vegans and vegetarians will be catered for as well as sweet things and ice cream. Food so far is being supplied by Biff's Jack Shack, the patate, Salty Loins, Lele's, Hanoi Cà Phê — Street Food & Drink.

It wouldn’t be a fête without a coconut shy and an array of lawn games.. There’s also GIANT Jenga for all you true players out there.

And if you’re not just young at heart, but are a genuine child, professional play promoters Hackney Play Bus are joining us to show the big kids how it’s really done. I hear tell of a sandpit, crafts and fun for all ages. Obv we have facepaint on lock.

All this is to a backdrop of blissed-out beats, Balearic bangers, oddball disco and general eclectic niceness from Star regulars, DJ collective We Are The Sunset.

If you’re not entirely satiated by such a spectacle, rumours of an after party at Star by Hackney Downs are almost certainly true….
