All Points East’s IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD returns for a second year with an four-day programme of FREE activities and entertainment in London's Victoria Park. In collaboration with Tower Hamlets Council, the local community and local organisations, the free programme takes place between All POints East's two weekends of music.

Happening from the second May bank holiday on Monday 27th until Thursday 30th May 2019, there's an eclectic mix of free activities for all ages, including an outdoor cinema, live music and entertainment, irresistible street food, Craft Beer Fair, pop-up bars, panels & talks, theatre, sports & wellbeing activities, family activities and much more.
 
There's the Craft Beer Fair on Bank Holiday Monday, with over 20 local breweries taking part and craft beer on tap from local brewers Redchurch, Truman’s and Five Points all week long! There's also a selection of street food, the full list of vendors to be announced. 
 
Free outdoor cinemas has a line-up of films for all the family - all voted for by the public. The movies on offer will be a mix of classics (Back to the Future), new releases (Bohemian Rhapsody), family favourites (Mary Poppins Returns) and the biggest blockbusters (Black Panther).   Each evening there's emerging music talent from artists including 47SOUL, London Contemporary Voices and Grand Union Youth Orchestra.
