10am – 5 pm
Building upon the established success of Urban Village Fete and new for 2017, Greenwich Peninsula and HemingwayDesign present SAMPLE, a FREE celebration of the start of each new season through fresh produce and modern craftsmanship.
The event will take place on Saturday 4th & Sunday 5th March, and will showcase the latest emerging creatives from the worlds of fashion, beauty, art, design and homewares with their archive, one off show-pieces and previous collections.
With seasonal food stalls, there will be plenty of delicious choices for lunch as well as fresh ingredients for dinner. Not stopping at taste, the air will be filled with the smell of spring! From Hyacinth and Jasmine to bedding plants and blossoming flowers, The Royal Horticultural Society’s flora & foliage will transform the Peninsula into oasis of foliage and textures.
There will also be opportunities to try ones hand at being a maker, with maker-led workshops such as The Experimental Perfume Club, whilst Gilles Peterson’s label Brownswood Recordings will be sampling a rich mix of tunes to add to the atmosphere.
SAMPLE spring will take place in the flourishing Peninsula Garden designed by Alys Fowler and Thomas Hoblyn in collaboration with Tom Dixon’s Design Research Studio.
