Dalston Christmas Market

Dalston Christmas Market 2013

Blencathra Productions worked with City Showcase, Hackney Borough Council, The Dalston CLR James Library and Barrett Homes to place-make for the new development that was Dalston Square. This newly developed commercial and retail space and public square became the hub of the community for Dalston Christmas Market with free community workshops, a stage for new local talent and 43 new designers and food stalls at least 50% of which were local businesses. The footfall to this previously unknown (and as yet unfinished) new development was continuous throughout the day bringing excess of 6k people to Dalston from 11:00 – 18:00. Curated, produced, managed and promoted by Blencathra Productions.
