The 'We love Hackney' weekend starts tomorrow and includes live music and performances, film, children's entertainment and the return of the Hackney One Carnival which was cancelled last month following the riots in Tottenham.

Across the weekend events are being held at a wide range of venues including Sutton House, the Hackney Empire, Hackney Museum and Central Library, and the Narrow Way. In addition, in Hackney Wick the Hackney Wicked festival returns for its second year.
