Street Child

It’s one heck of a hot ticket — the Summer Street Food Festival with UK charity Street Child and KERB on July 8 at Studio Spaces in East London. The point — a great night out. AND a chance to give the world’s poorest children the chance to go to school.

With live music, a silent disco and a DJ set providing the soundtrack to the night, guests will be able to choose three taster courses from KERB’s talented traders… Bian Dang, Club Mexicana, MyPie, Prairie Fire BBQ and Hank’s Po Boys. On offer will be fifteen delicious plates including mouth-watering 16hr hickory-smoked barbecued brisket sliders…100% vegan smokey-BBQ jackfruit tacos… Taiwanese-style slow braised pork belly in a soft steamed bun…

To finish, guests can indulge in gooey super-fudgey salted caramel brownies, or sumptuous berry pavlovas from South East Cakery. If that’s not enough, they’ll also enjoy four inclusive drinks – including a signature event cocktail – with a bar available throughout the evening if their thirst isn’t satisfied.

Live music on the night will be provided by must-see artist Kyan, whose raw vocals have been compared to those of Frank Ocean, and blend alt soul, indie electronic beats and classic lyric-driven compositions to bring an altogether new sound; and the incredible Bee Bakare, a Nigeria-born Brit-ish soul singer-songwriter whose upbeat, yet vulnerable and heart-felt songs take you on an emo-tional journey.

Funds raised at the event will go to support Street Child’s work in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Nigeria and Nepal, helping some of the world’s most vulnerable children to go to school.

The charity works in some of the world’s poorest countries, including regions recently beset by major natural or medical crises.

Since launching in 2008, Street Child has helped more than 53,000 children to go to school.
