The Clerkenwell Festival

A more relaxed, east London alternative to Carnival, the Spa Fields festival is a great chance for nippers (and their parents) to catch a few bands, browse a super-cool jumble sale, coo over the dog show, browse a kid-run market, go on a historical walk of the area, dance to the tunes of The Parkinsons, Oh!Gunquit, The Bad Breed, The Action Men, Electrophonic Tonic and the excellent, and very child-friendly DJ Wheelie Bag, and explore this sweet little park (with an excellent playground). We’ve been for the last few years, and love this sweet little rock and roll festival. EC1. Free. Sunday 1pm–6.30pm More here
