It’s officially spring. Thank god for that. Look forward to warmer, lighter, happier times with the five things bloggers LondonOnTheInside are looking forward to this March.
Feast, March 7-10
‘If you’ve never heard of Feast then you really need to start paying attention. It’s a street food festival which takes over quirky locations and sees the city’s best traders dish up their delights – like the Glastonbury of the street food world. This month it’s in the atmospheric 19th century Tobacco Wharf and has Patty & Bun, Anna Mae, Roti Chai and many more in attendance. For those with a dirty, juicy ball fetish (don’t pretend) make sure you check out The Bowler van for some meatballs, it’s the one covered in fake grass (see above) so you can’t miss it! Go hungry or go home…’
Easter Film Hop, March 29-31
‘There’s nothing quite like belting out a classic tune and it doesn’t get any better than a sing-a-long movie-thon to Grease, Dirty Dancing and Purple Rain. Oh yes, we will definitely be donning our headphones and getting involved in one, if not all three, of these cracking showings. And to top it off Frame is on hand to help you bust some moves, because let’s face it, we all want to learn how to perfect that slut drop. Go on, have the time of your life (sorry, we couldn’t resist).’ For info, see experiencecinema.com.
Dalston Nites, March 29
‘Babble Jar is probably the hippest, most happening bar in Stoke Newington. Which is why we are so over the top excited about moving our monthly free rock ‘n’ roll club night right inside their creative hub. Drinks are cheaper, the sound system is newer, there’s a quieter seating area upstairs for chatting up your love interest and the aim of the evening as always is to dance to dirty, sexy indie music.’ For info, see londontheinsidesocial.blogspot.co.uk
Beagle, opening end of March
‘The new joint in Hoxton sounds right up our street, a restaurant, bar and coffee shop all in one – seriously what more do you need? A hip location and quirky building? Tick! A cracking chef? Tick! Oh yes, this place has it all. Located in three renovated railway arches, chef James Ferguson will focus on good, honest home cooking with ace cocktails and an affordable wine list. Like we said, it has it all.’ For info, beaglelondon.co.uk
Hoxtown Market, March 15/16
‘We’re huge fans of the Hoxton Hotel, not least because the avocado on toast is amazeballs. Oh and Noel G said he liked our DJing the last time we played. That’s why we’ll be heading down to this weekend market to check out the emerging and established designers who are setting up shop there for two days. We’re most excited to see Mint Vintage’s denim room, because mark our words denim is going to be huger this season.’
