“Another glorious summer fete in London Town! Plenty of the traditional ingredients such as tug of war, cake stall and coconut shy but this also has live music, craft beer and a dogs fashion parade – there are some proud pooches in happening Hackney.The Voice winner, Jermain Jackson will be opening the fete – being a Hackney lad it’s the least he can do.
