This August Bank Holiday Sunday (25 Aug) from 11am, Culture Mile presents Smithfield Street Party: A Beastly Adventure, a fantastical free street party where animals top the bill, curated by the Museum of London.
The street party will feature a dog-friendly zone where your group can gather, with plenty of water and space for them to relax. Please get in touch with Olivia Carlin firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
In this year’s take on Culture Mile’s annual festival, all London’s animals – past, present or future, large and small, rare and familiar – will be taking over the streets around Smithfield Market for one day only to teach humans the secret ways of their world.
Imagined, visible or overlooked, larger than life or minuscule, all the animals will make an appearance at an unmissable party full of music, performances, workshops, games and play with 10,000 human party animals in one of Smithfield’s wildest events of the year. Inspired by the original Bartholomew’s Fair and the Museum of London and Guildhall School of Music & Drama’s Beasts of London experience, Smithfield Street Party invites all of London’s families, including their four-legged canine members, to come and take part in a day full of free beastly fun.
A host of other activities for all ages will animate the ancient streets throughout the day including bands, choirs, craft market stalls, zine-making workshops, history tours with The City Guides, dog shows, funfair rides and lots of surprises.
