This Saturday (noon-11pm), The Water Poet in Spitalfields hosts a family-friendly 1920s-style Summer Garden Party in its walled garden with croquet and boules, live jazz music and a barber shop quartet. Picnic baskets are on offer plus there’s an oyster bar, a spit hog roast and a cupcake stand courtesy of Lily Vanilli; the Barn Bar sells cask ales, cider, ginger beer and homemade lemonade to wash it all down with. Puff cigars at Burlington Bertie’s Cigar Bar, get high at The Absinthe Parlour and The Old Fashioned Sweet Shop. Guests are invited to dress up in their finest flapper dresses, kiss curls and painted moustaches. Entry is free for all.
