Swing East is back!
Chrisp Street Market flies back to 1951, when it was built as part of the Festival of Britain. On stage, the UK’s hottest bands, playing a cool and crazy mix of Hepcat Swing, Jumpin’ Rhythm and Blues and Red Hot Boogie. A great selection of market stalls, selling vintage and retro clothes, accessories, music and homewares. Alongside a huge variety of food and drink including real ales and cocktails. A top family day out with face painting and fun for kids, and a selection of vintage cars for the not so grownups. So put your cat clothes on and dance, eat, drink and boogie the Sunday away at the East End’s premier Jump and Jive Jamboree!
