A whole eight days of fun and entertainment along Roman Road from Grove Road to Parnell Road. All events are free entry and shops and businesses up and down the Roman are offering special offers, discounts and rare treats during the festival.



Opens with a relaxed afternoon of trails, chat and chilled music centred around the Albert Pub, who will also feed you roast potatoes, old East End style. Come and explore.

EVENING MEETS – 30th June to 5th July 

Brings you an actioned-packed schedule of evening events all hosted by Roman Road businesses and shops who are staying open late to entertain you. Everything from spa sessions to pop up cinema, talks to craft workshops. So peel yourself off the sofa and come and see what Roman Road looks like when it’s alive in the evenings. Support your local high Street and enjoy yourself – what could be better.


A full on street party to wrap things up in style, being held in the market between Parnell Road and Hewison Street. All day music stage, street food and designer maker stalls, the Wimbledon men’s final on a BIG screen, giant bubble-blowing for the kids, bubbles and strawberries for the grown ups and SO much more. Come and enjoy whether you’re fasting or feasting.


Here’s our jam packed programme – literally. Read it all here, or on the Roman Road Festival Facebook page, or download the Roman Road Festival 2014 printed programme, which will also be available at shops and businesses all along Roman Road.

And remember, thanks to the huge generosity of hundreds of people, everything is FREE!



Can you help us?

As a not-for-profit media organisation using journalism to strengthen communities, we have not put our digital content behind a paywall or membership scheme as we think the benefits of an independent, local publication should be available to everyone living in our area.

If a fraction of the local 40,000 residents donated two pounds a month to Roman Road LDN it would be enough for our editorial team to serve the area full time and be beholden only to the community. A pound at a time, we believe we can get there.

Support Roman Road LDN from as little as £2 and enjoy the benefits of being a Member.
