    StreetFest 2015

    Hello all!

    Hope you are doing great and enjoyed the bank holiday weekend. Yesterday I attended StreetFest after being invited to go along to blog about the day. It was their 8th year of running the Urban Culture Festival. It was such a great day and it was so nice to see a community come together and support each others talents.

    The location was perfect for this type of event, it was held at Tobacco Docks in East London. The sun was shining which was perfect for all stalls that set up outside. As soon as we arrived we headed to the  Dance Stage to catch the 'B Girl battles' this was so much fun to watch. I enjoy watching dancers whatever style - the bar was raised so high - I felt like I was watching a version of Step Up (the movie). 

    There was so much talent about I was super envious. I also loved walking around and seeing all of the amazing artwork. Here are some photos by the wonderful graffiti and street artists: 

    Later on in the day our tummy's were rumbling so we headed on outside to where all the stalls were. I love trying street food and we were spoilt for choice. I wish I wanted something sweet as we could have headed to get some Churros (which I have never tried before). However, we ended up going to Mama's Jerk to get some Jerk chicken wraps and what a great decision that was. I didn't take any photos of this because the wraps were over flowing with so much tasty chicken. It was so good we really wanted the top secret recipe. I checked Mama's Jerk online and read the beautiful story behind this company - which you can read here. They do pop up's at different events and are based at Camden Lock 7 days a week 10am-6pm and I can guarantee I will be heading there next time I crave some more Jerk Chicken!! 

    Adidas sponsored the event and so after some tasty food we headed to the Adidas stage to watch some live music, my favourite artist we saw was the very talented Loyle Carner perform on this stage before we headed back home. It was such a fun day out and I really recommend you to go next year. It is perfect for all age ranges, there was face painting, a pop up nail bar, pop up fashion stalls plus dance and music stages. 

    Hopefully see you next year at StreetFest 2016. 

    Have you ever tried Jerk Chicken? Have you ever tried Churros? Will you be heading to StreetFest 2016?

    Lots of Love,
