Hackney WickED 2012 takes a trip down Memory Lane. Digging through 4 years of history in the making and excavating the beloved fragments that have made Hackney WickED the ROCK in the rubble.
This instalment will see Hackney WickED putting on the RITZ to host a curated exhibition that will REFLECT and PROJECT the components that have built the wick collective conscience from 2008 to date.
A HollyWick affair, indeed!

Other events taking place on the Green, organised by Hackney Homes include facepainting, Hackney's famous Albion Kids' Show and a bouncy castle. The Fete for the WickED and the Crafternoon Tea Club will provide a dream combination of arts and crafts, and tea and scones, in an area furnished with hay bales and trestle tables. Experienced coaches from the Council's healthy lifestyles programme, Personal Bests, together with the charity Skyway, will be running a host of sporting and physical activities. There will be a display of disability sports on the 5-a-side football pitch, and advice on cycling and bicycle races from Cycling Club Hackney. To wind down, enjoy a session of massage therapy, sample food and drink from the stalls, and visit the Hackney Homes Marquee. All this, on a summer's afternoon, on a green space within sight of the Olympic Park.
