Expect live music, cooking demos, free workshops and – obviously – tons of gluten-free grub. So turn up hungry…
If you’re looking for things to do in East London this Saturday (29 April), you could certainly do a lot worse than a trip to Limehouse Basin, particularly if you don’t eat gluten, as a Gluten-Free Food Festival will be happening from 11am until 5pm.
The event’s free to attend but, unfortunately, they’re going to make you pay for the food. However, it’s unlikely to be over-priced as competing vendors selling allsorts – from celiac-friendly cupcakes to rice fusion burgers – will all be after your cash.
There’s a full list of traders on the event’s Facebook page.
It’s not all about gluten-free street food, though (wheat addicts, breathe a sigh of relief). There’ll also be a handful of traders selling ‘normal’ grub, plus a small farmers’ market, live music, free fitness sessions and a free graffiti workshop.
When I lived in Bethnal Green, Limehouse Basin (or Marina) was somewhere I’d often pass on a stroll along Regent’s Canal. It’s a bit of a hidden gem and looks lovely on sunny days. Not a bad place to spend a Saturday if the weather holds up.
