Taking place over Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 June, the weekend includes special screenings of Jon Favreau’s stellar new comedy ‘Chef’, football documentary The Second Game, Morph-Making workshops, delicious food trucks, face painting, family fun and lots more. From 12pm - 6pm on both days, the weekend will provide entertainment for East Village residents and the wider East London community, the first in a planned series of events to establish a thriving neighbourhood in the area.

To tie-in with England’s first World Cup game, Saturday will be football focused, with a special screening of Romanian football documentary The Second Game with more football-themed films from Copa90. There will also be free workshops with Aardman Animations, the film and television company behind Wallace & Gromit as well as Morph-making workshops to help families make their own version of one of Britain’s most beloved animated characters.

Sunday will see an exclusive screening of Jon Favreau’s latest star-studded feature Chef ahead of its UK theatrical release. Co-starring Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sofía Vergara, Dustin Hoffman and John Leguizamo, it tells of a father pulling his estranged family back together as he goes through a career transition from restaurateur to food truck owner – it’s a perfect fit for Father’s Day which falls on Sunday too.

Throughout the weekend, visitors to East Village will be able to have tours from Get Living London, and get a taste of what it is like to live in the former Athlete’s Village. Including a visit into a show home, this will be a fantastic chance to experience East Village as well as its picturesque surroundings.
