Smithfield 150Horrible Histories, a marching band and roller disco come to Smithfield Market on the August Bank Holiday weekend for a free two day festival to celebrate 150 years of the historic Victorian market. It's being billed as "the biggest birthday party in the capital's history" and 30,000 Londoners are expected to enjoy fairground rides, communal feasts, roller skating, dog shows, marching bands, a procession of large scale puppets, ping pong, pop-up markets, glitter stalls, dressing up as well as food and drink as stalls are set up along Long Lane. There's even a special area for under 5s who get their own mini-festival. Join in at the printing and stencilling workshops run by Anorak, explore the hidden histories of Smithfield and see a travelling cinema on wheels as Kino Van presents a film on the centenary of women's suffrage - a prominent theme at the festival.

 

About Smithfield Market

For tenants of Smithfield Market getting up in the dark is the nothing out of the ordinary; with the market opening at 4am these hard working folk start work when London's clubbers are just going home. As one of the oldest and most attractive markets in London Smithfield is a must-see. More about Smithfield Market
