The Chatsworth Road Festival ‘15


The Chatsworth Road Festival is back, one of the borough’s most anticipated seasonal highlights.

Returning for its third year on 5 September, the Chatsworth Road Festival, also known as ‘ChatsFest’, will see a day packed full of events and activities for all ages in celebration of the borough’s community spirit.

Kicking off at 10am through till 9pm, the Festival includes activities that range from a surf simulator, a climbing wall and sumo suits, to a bouncy castle for kids, boxing demonstrations by Pedro Boxing Club and roller hockey from Lea Valley Lions.

Also on the ChatsFest menu, live music on The Dentist Stage and a DJ set from local’s Comadisco. Back by popular demand, the Chatsworth Road Dog show returns with such judging categories as ‘dogs who look most like their owners’.

The Festival will also feature a host of award winning street food, local beers and a dedicated bar area.

Running from Homerton to Lower Clapton, the Chatsworth Road will be closed to traffic throughout the Festival helping to bring Hackney’s community together amongst the many local independent shops and businesses that continue to grow in the area.

Hackney Council is supporting this year’s Festival alongside many businesses on the street. The Chatsworth Road Festival is a free event.

It's great to see ChatsFest return for a third year. It's a real testament to local businesses, local residents and the Council working together to present what has fast become the go to event putting Chatsworth Road and Homerton neighbourhood on the map.

It’s fantastic to see ChatsFest become an annual event. It's a great example of a community event - with different generations and cultures coming together from across the area to celebrate their neighbourhood and have a good time together!
Ian Rathbone, Local Lea Bridge Councillor
We’re thrilled that ChatsFest is back for a third year. The festival is getting bigger and better every year thanks to the support from businesses on the street and we hope it will become a staple in many Londoners’ calendars whether it’s where they live or they want to discover this corner of east London.
