This Week September 4-10

4 September 2017 Will Rathbone

The start of a new week brings with it a sense of optimism - seven whole days waiting to be grabbed by the horns. Who knows what they’ll bring? Stalls upon stalls of the finest Eastern dining at the 2017 Chinese Food Festival? A colourful parade and live music at Hackney One Carnival? A floating market with live music at Totally Thames’ Feel Good Fridays? Whatever the next 168 hours bring you, make sure you’re prepared. Go get ‘em tiger.

Thebes Land - Arcola Theatre

We’ll begin with the return of the excellent Thebes Land to Dalston’s Arcola Theatre. The original run resulted in an Off West End Award for Best Production, and now you have five more weeks to find out why. The play blends reality and fiction, as a young writer battles to bring to life the story of Martin Santos, jailed for life for the murder of his father.

Thebes Land runs at the Arcola Theatre from 6 September till 7 October. Tickets from £12.

OnBlackheath

OnBlackheath heralds the end of the London festival season, and 2017 is going out with a bang. Over two days, dozens of acts will head to Blackheath Common - and it’s a heck of a line-up. Incendiary poet/performer Kate Tempest, 90s hip hop legends De La Soul and groovy electro-poppers Metronomy join headline acts Travis and The Libertines. It’s your last chance to dance in a field till 2018!

OnBlackheath takes place at Blackheath Common over 9/10 September. Tickets are £49.50 for the day, or £90 for the weekend, with Group / VIP options also available.

2017 Chinese Food Festival

The Chinese Food Festival returns to Potters Fields Park, at the foot of Tower Bridge, for another weekend of delicious food stalls and culinary workshops. Bun House, Ekachai, Chang’s Noodle and Buffle Waffle House are among the traders, and there are free hour-long cooking masterclasses available to book on the day, where you can learn to make dumplings and Sichuan chicken.

The 2017 Chinese Food Festival takes place at Potters Fields Park from 8-10 September. Entry is free.

Hackney One Carnival

A great alternative to the behemoth that is Notting Hill, Hackney One Carnival is a local parade where the community spirit is still very much at the core of the celebrations. The procession begins at 1:30pm on Queensbridge Road, by Regent’s Canal, and ends at 5:30pm on the corner of Queensbridge Road/Richmond Road. There are kids play areas, food stalls and sound systems dotted around the route.

Hackney One Carnival takes place throughout Hackney on 10 September from 12-8pm.

Feel Good Fridays - St. Katharine Docks

The Totally Thames Festival has a whole host of river-related goings-on, including Feel Good Fridays at St. Katharine Docks. Every Friday throughout September, from 12:30-2pm, a series of top-notch street food stalls will be serving up lunchtime fodder accompanied by a different group of musicians each week - starting with the London Female Saxophone Quartet this Friday. So why not pull up a deckchair, or a beanbag, and spend your lunchtime on a floating market.

Feel Good Fridays take place at St. Katharine Docks, Tower Bridge, every Friday throughout September as part of Totally Thames Festival. Entry is free.
