The Urban Village Fete in Greenwich was too sick. I found out about it by chance online because I was googling about the new Greenwich Design District area that’s currently being built. This area is going to be a thriving art hub – as these articles keep predicting.
It said it was at the Peninsula bit which we assumed was the Odeon but as soon as we got to North Greenwich the whole area was bustling. It was hosted next to the Dome bit.

There were loads of food trucks, drink trucks, handmade stuff for sale and home made tasty food shiz.

Everything was EXPENSIVE fam. The food was like £9 for something decent size I was gassed. Why are they all pricing them like they’re gourmet? That’s how much pizza express is and you get to sit down. Apart from that, the whole event was buzzing. There were loads of free workshops dotted around.

At the end the guy running it looked at our final pieces and immediately was like right so you’re Artistic/Creative, a Neat Perfectionist and Free Flowing; he managed to decipher us through our cross stitch masterpieces. We were like :O
