Hackney’s biggest, boldest, proudest and loudest summer event is back this summer. From steel pan tunes to soca aerobics, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.

Now in its third year, the event brings together hundreds of performers from the arts, carnival and community groups across the borough and beyond. Hackney One Carnival gives residents and visitors the opportunity to celebrate arts and culture alongside sports in the run up to the 2012 Games.

Don-e, the multi-talented instrumentalist and songwriter is just one of the many acts expected.

Carnival procession begins in Queensbridge Road at midday. Festival in Hackney Downs Park from 2 to 6pm.
