The line-up for the town centre’s first ever indoor festival has been revealed with just one week left until its launch.
The Brew Town Festival, a partnership project between The Brewery shopping centre and Things Made Public, the Community Interest Company (CIC) based at The Retailery, Romford, will be running every weekend from Friday, August 3, to Sunday, August 19 with the aim of celebrating culture.
Creative director at Made Public Lauren Martin said: “We’ve booked amazing acts, are working with fantastic set designers and are really hoping to bring a truly immersive and unique event to Romford.
“This really will be an event for everyone, whatever music you like however old you are we promise there will be something to enjoy at Brew Town Festival.”
Acts such as urban acoustic trio 52 Kings, indie pop band The No Fun Club and unique cover band The Midnight Slot will be entertaining crowds at the festival which will be held at the former JD Sports site (Unit 10) at The Brewery.
There will also be an acoustic stage during the festival where talent from around the borough will be performing.
But as well as the music, there will be plenty of fun things to keep yourself busy.
The Throwback Weekender will be held by instructor and dancer Danielle Capretti where she and her team will teach you the funky moves from the days of disco, taking you through each step of the dyn-o-mite line dance, the Soul Train Line and much more.
As well as this, families can enjoy face painting, a puppet show and a chance to meet a real life mermaid!
And if you fancy being in with a chance to win free pizza for a whole year thanks to Mod Pizza which recently opened up at The Brewery shopping centre, then you need to make your way down to the festival as soon as the doors open next week.
Those behind the event want to make sure that visitors are treated to a “truly immersive experience, never before seen in Romford”.
