The Alternative Village Fete at National Theatre

Expect a full and diverse programme of artists', artisans' and craftmakers' activities that put a contemporary, urban twist on the traditional village event.

Saturday will revolve around a vibrant stage programme - visitors can partake in a mass Ukelele jam, contemporary ceilidh, dance to anarchic brass - and also a wealth of fun, participatory fete based games and interactions that bring our traditional craftmaking practices into the 21st Century.

Sunday's lunchtime programme will mark the seasonal move towards Autumn and Harvest time with a 'Sunday Picnic' series of innovative food and horticulture projects where visitors can share in the art of preparing, cooking and tasting to the sounds of urban folk fusion on stage.

Participants include Waterloo-based I Knit London and Kennington's Roots & Shoots.
