Shoreditch Festival - this weekend on the Regent's Canal!

This weekend sees for the first time the arrival of Shoreditch Festival on Hackney's Regent's Canal.

A longstanding annual fixture for the local area this year the Festival moves north from Shoreditch Park to the canalside. Tomorrow is the first day of the 'live weekend' when attractions include live music on three stages, boat trips, street dance, food markets, and floating forest and much more.

In De Beauvoir, just east of Whitmore Road you'll find a floating stage, and on the opposite side of the canal, by the Waterhouse Restaurant you'll find a floating cinema and headstart exibition.

On the following weekend the theme is 'exploration' - when London Walks, Heritage Podcasts and the Shoreditch Festival Arts Trail will allow you to explore east London's waterways and see the area in a whole new light.

You can find more details about what's going on on the festival's website, and a map of what's going on can be found here.
