Martin Offiah MBE and robot dragons launch World Cup @TheWickHackney – 12th June onwards

From 12th June 2014 onwards, The Wick will become Hackney’s permanent mini festival – launching with a month of unique and vibrant World Cup activities and continuing onwards: the new heart of Hackney Wick.

Not only does The Wick boast huge screens for all the key matches but also a choice of bars, a melange of gourmet food stalls (including BBQ from the flaming grills of the acclaimed Big Apple Hot Dogs, delicious ice cream and waffles served in a vintage style from Jiggery Pokery, and a choice of lovingly smoked, responsibly sourced food from Sugar Shack), incredible street art installations, live music and dj sets from an eclectic mix of big names, a kids’ zone and PlayStation room, a giant beach and so much more. Completely family friendly – and best of all – entry to The Wick is always free!

The Wick is the brainchild of Garfield Hackett (Mutate Britain, Cordy House, Trash City, Shangri La at Glastonbury) collaborating with the Cre8 Community centre, Albion Kids and Callum Broome from Dove and Defender bars – plus many more artists and local heroes!

The Wick is at 80 Eastway E9 – 2 mins walk from Hackney Wick overground
