To accompany the tunes, in Grow's canal side kitchen, we have Slow Fire London serving up BBQ smoked meats and veg options.

Signature Brew
Like a lot of good ideas, the concept of Signature Brew was born in a pub, when two cousins, tired of drinking mediocre overpriced lager in music venues decided a change needed to be brought.

In 2011, with a little help from some internationally renowned bands and musicians Sam and Tom started delivering on their commitment to get good beer into the hands of gig goers.

Fast forward 5 years and their vision lives on through a core range of music inspired beers available at venues and pubs alike, brewed at their 20HL brewery in Leyton, East London, alongside their regular boundary pushing artist collabs.

COCK AND BULL FESTIVAL PARTY // CANALSIDE IN HACKNEY WICK

FREE ENTRY

After 5 years of amazing farmyard antics, Cock & Bull Festival is taking a break this year to rest and recharge the batteries before a triumphant return in 2018. To bridge the gap Grand Union Sound, who have run the festival’s Stone Barn space since the very beginning, will be putting on a fundraising party, here at Grow!

Running from noon until midnight, Grand Union Sound DJs will be spinning a summery mix of festival beats spanning reggae, afrobeat, hip hop, soul and much more.

Delicious food will be provided by Grow Hackney’s BBQ residents Slow Fire London and in the bar you will find craft beers and ciders, organic wine and spirits, fair trade coffee and tea.
Money raised at this event will go to Jamie’s Farm to support the incredible work that they do. Cock & Bull is run by Jamie’s Farm and the festival raises tens of thousands of pounds each year for the charity.

About Jamie's Farm

Jamie’s Farm exists to transform the lives of vulnerable children in challenging urban schools by providing a unique combination of farming, family and therapy through a short stay residential and follow up programme. Jamie’s Farm aims to re-engage children with educational life, and enable them to fulfil their potential in school and a wider social setting. It’s a simple, inspiring project.

Since 2009 Jamie’s Farm has impacted over 4,000 disadvantaged young people who visit one of their farms for a week-long residential that combines ‘Farming, Family and Therapy’. A carefully crafted programme that mixes tangible jobs around the farm with therapeutic support is helping vulnerable children, primarily those with poor behaviour and poor engagement at school, to reengage with education and see their futures in a new light. In 2016, of all the young people who were at risk of exclusion before their visit to Jamie’s Farm, 82% are no longer in this category 6 weeks on. Due to high demand the charity is growing to three farms in 2017 and to four farms in 2018, soon to be working with 1,800 disadvantaged young people each year. www.jamiesfarm.org.uk/

About Jackson

“Jackson combines moody singer-songwriter lyricism with the psychedelic funk of a 7 piece outfit. Sitting somewhere between Jamiroquai, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea and Sun Ra, this band brings heaps of creativity and virtuosity” – Jazz + Promotions

“Featuring all original compositions written by Jack Baldus, the sound is a throwback to the psychedelic funk of the 70’s, yet fresh as the proverbial daisy. Influences can be traced to Jamiroquai, Herbie Hancock, and Stevie Wonder, to name but a few.” – Discovery Talent, London

"Their funk-fuelled big band performance soon reveals itself as nothing short of special, full of killer solos and noisy climaxes."

GROW VILLAGE FETE // PART OF HACKNEY WICKED ARTS FESTIVAL 2017

GROW VILLAGE FETE // PART OF HACKNEY WICKED ARTS FESTIVAL 2017

FREE ENTRY
12-6PM

Part of Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios 2017

The Grow Village Fete hopes to create a spectacle within a Spectacle , which frees us, even for a moment. This Village Fete will focus on collaboration. Through interactions, sociality and play we will attempt to disentangle ourselves from our everyday lives. Franco ‘Bifo’ Berardi says if we can disentangle we may imagine other possible futures, already in our present, but which we have yet to uncover

Expect manifestations of ‘splat the rat’, ‘human fruit machine’, ‘sponge stock’,‘hoopla’, a raffle, cakes and plants stalls, live performances from brass band, Das Brass, Mixed Bag Of Nuts DJs and a Slow Fire London BBQ. The event also raises funds for local mental health charity, Core Arts.

The artist behind the fete is co-founder of Grow, Jordanna Greaves. Her work is a humorous protest at what it is to comply to the power systems around us and asks ‘can we play to become something new?’ She often works in collaboration, and this Village Fete, as do all the events at Grow, relies on the sharing economy of artists and musicians of the surrounding area, and everyone who walks through its doors. She is currently studying MA Fine Art at John Cass with tutor Bobandroberta Smith.

Each year, Grow is proud to be part of Hackney WickED DIY Open Studios and 2017 is no different. It give us a chance to the celebrate the creativity in the area and showcase what happens at Grow week-in-week-out. This year, we have a jam-packed programme with local talent and some new collaborations in the form of performance, music, participation and art, often all at the same time!
