Visit: The Anorak Summer Fête at Dalston's Children's Festival

There's bingo, bunting, balloons and a whole host of brilliant things going on for kids at the 2013 Anorak Summer Fête

Remember the summer fetes of your childhood, filled with fun and frolics, homemade cakes and the kind of sweet and innocent jollly japes that the Famous Five would be proud of? You'll find it all, with a modern urban twist, at Anorak's Summer Fête, on Saturday August 31. “At Anorak, we prefer our festivals small and inventive,” says Anorak founder, Cathy Olmedillas; so expect bijou but beautiful!

The free festivities take place in Dalston Square, London, as part of Dalston's Children's Festival 2013, with Anorak, the happy magazine for kids, as your kindly host. Try your luck in Anorak's Happy Bingo Hall, hip hop to Hopscotch, or prove your mettle in good old-fashioned sports day fun with the egg and spoon race. 

As you'd expect from Anorak, whose creative arts magazine for six to 12-year-olds is super cool, there's plenty of artistic creation opportunities to be had, including a giant colouring wall and an activity station filled with imaginative arts projects: from spotting ladybirds to making paper pizzas or creating a peculiar paper pizza recipe.

The Poetry Take-away crew will also be on hand to provide on-demand rhymes while party experts, Carousel, will be putting on a Teddy Bear’s Picnic at the delightfully peaceful Dalston Eastern Curve Garden. Delicious Mediterranean food will be provided by Route Café while the Hackney Youth Orchestra serenade visitors with musical interludes.
