One hell of a block party on Hewett Street

Hewett Street Block PartyIf I have one criticism of London it is that we don’t have enough block parties. Street parties are all well and good but ‘block party’ just sounds so much cooler, right?! Well trust the hip cats over at creative agency Protein to put on a stonkingly incredible-sounding afternoon of treats this Saturday September 22 (12-9pm). What with Protein’s 15th birthday, the London Design Festival and the upcoming plans to demolish the whole block, they thought it was high time to invite all their favourite designers, neighbours and mates to celebrate in style on their street. They’ve teamed up with Street Feast, so expect some tasty food trucks, as well as burgers from Elliot’s, vietnamese baguettes from Banhmi11, pies from Rita’s and the legendary Big Apple Hot Dogs. London Fields Brewery lager, Dalston Cola and Hewett Street Slushies will be on hand to quench your thirst and Dunne Frankowski will provide the caffeine hits. There’ll also be complimentary shaves from Murdock, freebies from Aesop and a raffle, with prizes from Dishoom, Secret Cinema and Supra. This is the block party dreams are made of. Sonya Barber
