Smithfield 150

Smithfield 150 – London’s Biggest Birthday Party

Published: August 27, 2018

A massive thank you to everyone who celebrated Smithfield 150 – London’s Biggest Birthday Party – with us over the August Bank Holiday.

Whether you brought sausage dogs for the #SausageWalkLondon procession, tweeted, took part in events, participated in workshops, danced to some incredible music, shivered (but withstood!) Sunday’s rain, tucked into the excellent food on offer or all of the above, we simply couldn’t have celebrated the 150th anniversary of Smithfield Market in such great style without you. 

From Nadia Rose  and NIMMO on the Main Stage through to MOTHERBRUNCH hosting the Under 5’s hangout, the Poultry Market’s roller disco, the incredible parades, a plethora of brilliant activity spaces and the eclectic line up on Smoothfield stage, it really felt like there was something for everyone. 

Over the two days we were proud to welcome just shy of 25,000 people (and a few hundred dogs). This breaks down as 16,446 on the Saturday (which was a truly glorious day) and 8,348 on the Sunday (in spite of traditional Bank Holiday rain.)

Let’s do it again soon!
