We’ve announced the programme highlights – obviously we’re over-excited and are still tinkering. Sign up to the Priority Mailing List (click the ‘sign up‘ button in the main menu) to receive advance news, special offers and updates. Tickets go on sale via the website this week and the printed programme will be with us next week. At the same time, we publish a downloadable and printable PDF on the website.
So, here’s to a rocking 2019 festival. If you haven’t got the 7-9 June in your diaries then *Paddington stare*.
Nigella Lawson, Ed Miliband, Tracey Thorn, Zawe Ashton, Alan Johnson, Stephen Morris (Joy Division & New Order), Billy Bragg, Yasmin Khan, Roger Robinson & Johny Pitts, Sali Hughes & Lauren Laverne, Felicity Cloake, Mariam Khan, Kerry Hudson, Elizabeth Macneal, walking tours, writing workshops, a whole kids’ festival featuring John Hegley and Elmer the Elephant…if you can’t find something on our programme you like, then we’re very sorry but you might be dead.
It’s easy to make a weekend of it in Stoke Newington – we have a huge park with deer, a Victorian Gothic cemetery which doubles up as London’s biggest arboretum (the atmospheric Mortuary Chapel is one of our venues), some of the best independent shops, cafes and bars in London, from (allegedly) London’s best pizzeria to hidden craft beer bars and some of the best Turkish restaurants and supermarkets you’ll find in the capital. We’ll be posting a guide of our favourites soon.
And if you just want to chill out listening to free live music, our Budvar Tent outside the Town Hall serves some of the best fresh beer in London and with everything from rockabilly to saz bands, a punk brass band and surf noir supremos the Bikini Beach Band, that’s fine too.
Look forward to seeing you!
