Pitch Stratford at Stratford open all summer

Welcome to your new back yard. Pitch Stratford serves up chilled alfresco vibes and a jam-packed events schedule in a vibrant (and weather-proof) urban garden setting. 🌇 💁‍♀️ ☺️

Featuring street food, fully stocked bar and a giant screen for sports and films.

They’re running extended opening hours over the summer, particularly between 14 June and 15 July, when they’re hosting lots of FIFA World Cup screenings. ⚽️

Thursdays (from May onwards)
A wide range of fun activities to get stuck into. You can go alone or with friends and join in with anything from the Summer School series (all your favourite elementary school classes, redesigned for adults) to big-screen video games, double-date nights and East London’s freshest pub quiz.

Fridays
Celebrate the end of a hard week’s graft with a few after-work drinks (and a big party after). Go straight from the office with colleagues, then get your mates to join in later. Food and drink is of course served throughout and, when the music stops at Pitch, you can head across the road to the secret new speakeasy.

Saturdays
Family-friendly street food lunches, themed party nights – and a good few hours’ worth of open-air eating and drinking in between. During the day, you’ll find even more great street food than usual. A unique Saturday night is planned each week to see things interesting!

Sundays
The perfect day for brunching and they’re serving outside in the sunshine, along with DJs to boost the Ibiza vibe in the unlikely event of clouds.

The Summer Festival is back for its third year and has got loads of new events and activities to complement old favourites like the infamous 100m waterslide (images and video available of people hurtling down the hill in a dingy), the secret forest silent disco, outdoor cinema and Great British Pram Race, featuring some truly pimped up prams.

There’s plenty for the kids too – after a triumphant sold out Family Rave last year, Big Fish Little Fish are back with another. There’s also a funfair, graffiti workshops and much more to keep the little ones entertained.

Theatre highlights include an interactive theatre show for families by Chickenshed and comedy from Jackson’s Lane presents Lost in Translation Circus. Ahead of the opening of the Victorian Theatre next year, this emphasis on performance art is all about building excitement and drawing a brand new audience to Ally Pally.
