What they say:
Red Market will be bringing to London a great street party on Old Street, packed with amazing cocktails, street food, craft stalls, art and music entertainment. This pop-up bar and fun centre will add to the already vibrant cultural myriad of Shoreditch. With 20,000 sq. ft. of interesting stalls, shows and even a beach area, the Red Market is exciting enough to draw the creative and the curious to their premises - even on a cloudy day. It will be an unbeatable London attraction when (if!) the sun comes out. Red Market will be the ideal drinking hang-out in London 2012 as a massive custom-made screen will be showing movies, video art and high lights of the Olympics and Paralympics.
If youre feeling sporty you can play table tennis at the Red Market as your lazy friends relax in the hammocks. Since the market is open from noon until 11pm youll have plenty of time to do both without missing any of the bands, dancers, comedians, poets or bingo callers who will perform on the small stage. A landmark revealing of a classic Banksy street art piece will excite the Shoreditch art crowd.
