Hampstead Festival will be taking place over the sunny week of the 6th-12th July. A week of art, culture and community, it will be launching this weekend with The Big Fair on Sunday 6th.
Taking place on Heath Street where our Hampstead shop resides, The Big Fair is a colourful street party with a bustling carnival atmosphere. More than a hundred stalls will line the street to a background of live music and street entertainment. Get the children (or yourself!) a donkey or unicorn ride, check out the birds of prey and Artisan food, and visit Art Village to try your hand at a creative workshop or buy something for your collection.
In addition to all this, Cass Art will be hosting a kid's workshop in the kid's tent over by the pond.
Let the little ones get crafty using our best-selling book Secret Garden by Johanna Bashford, a black-and-white world full of intricate drawings. They can colour in their favourite scenes and spot the mini creatures on the pages. We'll then use the book to help them make vibrant, paper windmills for them to take home.
The workshop is free and is appropriate for all children aged 4+.
The Big Fair will run on Sunday 6th July from 11am - 5pm, so bring along the whole family for a day of art, music and all-round fun.
