Become the star of Roman Road Festival

Roman Road Festival is coming up soon and we need you! This FREE community festival will showcase and support local talent and we need YOUR help to make it truly unique.


Click here for the festival programme so far.


When is the festival?
It starts on Sunday 29th June with a day of trails and talks, followed by week of evening events, and then finishes with a street party on Sunday 6th July.  Don’t forget to put it in your diary!


Why do we need you? 
We are keeping things very local and are only using talent from Bow and the surrounding areas. From creating the street decorations to performing during the event, we want all our creators, performers and documenters to be local.


What we have so far!
We already have an incredible programme. Secret cinema from SCIFI London; a jam night with local music and …jams; comedy in the cab office; political debates with Oona King and John Rentoul; fascinating local tours and trails; a spoken word night featuring the well-known playwright Simon Stephens as well as young talent from Anna Fiorentini drama school; street performers and children’s activities; loads of local bands; origami lessons; Bow pub quiz night; a big Saturday Night Out on The Roman, and much ,much more.  All of this will be served with a humorous, quirky twist. Be surprised on the day or check for programme updates at .
