Summer Fete coming to Royal Wharf on Saturday 21 July

Ballymore, in association with Richard House Children's Hospice, is putting on a Summer Fete at Royal Wharf on Saturday 21 July.

The fete, to be hosted at Royal Wharf Park, will feature a large number of family-friendly events, activities and stalls, including street food, a Pimms bar, coffee trike, lawn games, face painting and balloon modellers.

The activities start at 10am with a free yoga class (book your place by e-mailing [email protected]), followed by children's activities from 11:30am.

The afternoon's activities begin with a "Hula Hoop Workshop" at midday (no, we're not entirely sure what that is either), followed by live music, courtesy of London singer-songwriter Robbie Boyd at 1pm. Children's races take centre stage from 3pm, followed by more music at 4pm, from Das Brass, an eight-piece brass band. Festivities are due to be wrapped up by 7pm.

Food at the fete is set to be provided by a number of popular street food vendors, including Kerbisher and Malt (named Best British fish and chips by Esquire Magazine), artisan pizzas courtesy of Born & Raised  (served from a custom-built Land Rover Defender!) and Rainbo's Japanese Street Food.

The event is being hosted in partnership with Richard House Children’s Hospice, a charity that supports children and their families in East London to lead as positive and happy a life as possible when dealing with a life-limiting health condition. The charity has organised a traditional sports day for the Fete, with a number of events from hula hooping to races taking place for family and friends to enjoy. All proceeds from the Sports Day will go towards this worthy cause.

Residents of Royal Wharf and the local community are invited to attend.
