Week beginning June 17th - Great Titchfield Street Festival June 22nd

Did you know that up until the 1960's, our area of Great Titchfield street was an operating market? It was known as the Italians market. If you look on the right hand curb from Mortimer street to Foley street as you walk up you will see indented into the concrete a Y shape, this marks the area or space that the market stall holder had to put out their stall.

Did you also know that Boris Johnson has plans to put part of Great Titchfield street and some of the surrounding smaller streets into pedestrianised areas, forming part of his transport strategy for the capital.

Did you also know that the month of June is the London Festival of Architecture. Formally biennial, 2013 is the first year that it has become and annual event.

With all these things combined, one of the architecture firms in the area, Morrow and Lorraine, have approached council with the idea of closing off Great Titchfield street from Mortimer to Foley to hold a street festival, celebrating the heritage of the area and also holding various architecture demonstrations on the street with music, face painting, balloons and of course food and beverage.

So, on Saturday June 22nd from 12 pm to 6 pm, the street will be closed off for all traffic, allowing pedestrians to walk along and see these architecture demonstrations and competitions happening on the day and all of the food and beverage operations on the street will have tents outside their premises with various food offers.

Kaffeine will operate a coffee cart that is used at some of the UK's major events and we will also be extending our food offer from the cafe for takeaway service from another tent.

This is a great opportunity to promote this quiet area of Fitzrovia not only for it's heritage but also for the design firms who work in the area and the hospitality operations who support it.

We hope to see you on the day.
