The Big Lunch turned out to be much bigger than any of us had thought. For those who were not here - you guys missed a lot! Even the grumpy English weather was on our side as the summer in Hackney this year was on Thursday!
It all started with the aroma of Rosa’s jerk chicken which started its seduction right at two o’clock as she placed the first pieces on the BBQ infront of WS44. We had an amazingly diverse menu as almost all of the people present brought something delicious to put on our long table. Wine, beer and juice were also on the list of goods and kindly offered at the bar inside.
And so with the lunch at the Big Lunch an amazin afternoon started. We got the amazing Darren And Fancis running a bike workshop right next to the jerk chicken stand, so we kind of combined healthy transport and tasty food.
Rosie and her magical jewellery stand made the atmophere even more magical and colourful and Ben and Travis ran an almost 3 hours I-pad music workshop and are now actually very close to putting together an album (stay tuned for some upcoming info on that).
Also, we finally got the results from Clear village’s area research - if interested, do drop by and get a booklet with the analysis and all the interesting findings about the area - both the bright and dark sides of Regents Estate.
At some point, as most of us were coping with digestion, Sweet Combination featuring local residents, musicians and kids got the levels of good mood to their maximum limits and jamed till the end of the Big Lunch. If you havent heard them play, you havent heard music!
We simply have to mention Aiming Skywards, Poached Creative, YHWorld, Off Centre, Sweet Combination, Da Boost, Art Against Knives, Aire Projects and all of you caring, sharing and wonderful guys who joined and supported us!
Huge THANK YOU to all the people how made this amazing afternoon possible!!!
We are looking forward to our next Big (lunch) time together, in the mean while – you can always find us in Workshop44!
