This Sunday, London’s platform for the promotion and celebration of contemporary art will be once again popping up in Hackney. Pop-Up Circus takes over Platform Cafe, Bar and Terrace at Netil House, for an all day feast of art, music, theatre and creative revelry.
Pop-Up Circus is a brand new platform for contemporary activity, promoting and staging music, art, film, theatre, writing, food and photography in traditional and non-traditional venues throughout London. All this creativity is presented in an environment which is buzzing and welcoming, and is intended to be a real open platform for all disciplines of creativity.
The event takes place this Sunday 27th November at Platform Cafe – a warehouse cafe in an almost hidden location in London Fields, Hackney.
The schedule is epic, and promises a fascinating and diverse artfeast…
