MAKEMOREA festival for makers and doers, MAKEMORE is a new summer jamboree in Victoria Park where you can try your hand at crafts activities, with live music and immersive theatre thrown in. An uplifting festival where you eat, drink, socialise and have a go at making something, take part in bushcraft activities with The Exploration Society, turn wood with Barn the Spoon or venture into the world of model animation with Wallace and Gromit creators, Aardman productions. Create your own posters, join a printing workshop, see how tiny house building is done, learn how to throw a pot and join Whelans Weaving for a live interactive art installation. Foodies are very well catered for too with Angela Clutton pulling together a who's who of published talent from Charlotte Pike, award-winning food writer and author of Smoked, to Masterchef's Dhruv Baker. Performing arts include a mix of cabaret, comedy, burlesque and puppetry from Frantic Assembly, Little Angel Theatre and Polka Theatre, supplemented by live music from London choir, Some Voices.

 

About Victoria Park

One of London's best kept secrets, Victoria Park is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon. The city's first public park, it was opened in the East End in 1845 after a local MP presented Queen Victoria with a petition of 30,000 signatures. More about Victoria Park
