The dazzling Dalston Darlings take over the Eastern Curve Garden on Saturday for a day of interactive fun, games and merriment to rival a royal fete. Expect all the favourites – raffles, face-painting, costumes, comedy sketches, games, food and drink, whipped up into a frenzy by host and festival-veteran Clayton Wright. A regular at Camp Bestival (and seen at last year’s Land Of Kings sporting some very becoming vicar garb marrying couples at the Dalston Boy’s Club on the royal wedding day), this time Clayton will don regal robes and take the role of The Queen. Cutting a fine figure, he’ll host The May Day Queen Contest, inviting audience participation for the scoring of each round, and children to join in with any dancing.

Land Of Kings
After last years rip roaring success of a Royal Wedding event, we’ve been asked back for a second year and this time we aim to make it even better!
On Saturday 5th May, from 11am – 3pm, we are holding a May Day celebration in the Dalston Eastern Curve Gardens where everyone is invited to come and join us for drinks, food, music and May Pole Dancing. Volunteers are needed to come and help set up the event from 9am – 11am.
Our May speaker is a dab hand with all things career-led. As the current Time Out features editor, journalist for The Guardian, Sunday Times and director at Clever Boxer (courses for adults ‘to help you punch above your weight in today’s creative industries’) as well as the Guardian Masterclass’, Simone joins us to talk about the two CC’s – careers and creativity.
See you at The Pub On The Park (Martello Street, E8) 7pm.
