Underbelly Festivals’ StreetEat to open in Victoria Park

4th Aug 2020

Socially distanced, outdoor socialising this summer!

StreetEat Victoria Park 7 – 31 August is the third StreetEat site following StreetEat on the South Bank (until 10 October) and StreetEat Wimbledon Park (23 August)

StreetEat is a new event concept and brand from live entertainment company Underbelly

 

Underbelly today announces StreetEat Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets, the latest in a new series of food and drink pop-ups opening across London this summer 7 – 31 August. 

 

The East London hotspot will be the third in the series of social-distanced food and drink pop-ups following StreetEat on the South Bank next to Gabriel’s Wharf and StreetEat Wimbledon Park, which has enjoyed a scorching opening weekend. 

 

Free to enter and completely outdoors, each StreetEat site will bring together the finest independent street food traders, open air bars, socially distanced seating pods and free live performances on our StreetEat stage from musicians, DJs, cabaret performers and singers. An emphasis will be placed on booking and supporting food traders, performers and artists that are local to the site or borough where they perform. 

 

All sites will adhere to strict social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures in line with UK Government guidance whilst also providing a fun, relaxed and low impact outdoor socialising environment. 

 

The events will be produced by the team behind Underbelly Festival Southbank, one of London’s original pop-up sites and one of the UK’s biggest and best-loved multi-arts festivals, renowned for its informal and fun atmosphere, groundbreaking live entertainment and buzzing outdoor bar spaces. Underbelly are one of the leading producers of outdoor pop-up events and festivals in London, having created events, theatres and festivals on sites including Leicester Square, Marble Arch, Trafalgar Square and of course South Bank.
