Queens Yard Summer Party

Queens Yard Summer Party expands to two-day festival across 20 venues at Hackney Wick in 2019 with DJs Felix Dickinson, Bill Brewster, Ralph Lawson and many more

I do love a good party, especially when it’s outside in the summer months. Hackney Wick is a vibrant and fun part of London. More so, when the place is to host its very own two-day festival.
Queens Yard Summer Party is expanding to a two day festival in 2019 and promises to be a perfect way to explore a vast array of music, arts, culture and gastro food and drink without having to tussle with tents, manage mud or wrestle with the weather.
