Vegan Nights launched in September 2017 as a plant-based party and one-off night market. The event immediately smashed expectations when nearly 3,000 people descended upon its 500 capacity venue. There was a clear appetite to see it become a regular event, and they have been working hard to meet the demands of East London’s insatiable vegan community ever since. Having only just celebrated its first birthday, they are super proud to already be recognised globally as one of the pioneering and largest vegan food celebrations.
With a carefully curated line-up of around 40 food stalls serving the biggest and best selection of plant-based street food and desserts, it really is the best place for lifelong vegans to socialise alongside punters merely curious to see the latest seitan creation.

“I would have never thought I’ll find a place anything like this, but here it is. Had a really fun time, and will be back for sure.” – Brigitta B.
Hawker House is the perfect versatile event space for awards ceremonies, conferences, product launches, parties, and more. Its huge all-year-round warehouse can fit up to 2000 people in winter and 3000 in the summer when they open up its outdoor tropical paradise, the Land of Bamboo. Since launching in 2012, they have transformed derelict and disused spaces into buzzing day and night street food markets.
Dig into globe-spanning dishes from many of the best traders in London everything from burgers, chicken wings, posh kebabs to Mexican classics made vegan. Each of the bars has its own identity, taking in hidden cocktail spaces and wrap-around terraces and the ever-changing music keeps the party raging until late.

“A large array of good quality food counters. Nice beers and wines, friendly staff. Spacious but limited seating. Easy walking from tube station. Pool tables could do with a bit of maintenance. Large cloakroom.” – Carl C.

“Love the relaxed friendly atmosphere with a variety of food and drinks to choose from. This included 2 for one cocktail and the Jerk pork and chicken from a stall called Mini Jerk Street was absolutely delicious! There’s a nice ambiance about sitting outside listening to music playing in the background although they could do with playing some reggae to fit in with the scene. Will definitely be back again and invite some more friends.” – Julie A.

“Great place for a diverse food experience. We had the polish sausage, which was excellent and the polish beer was superb. So were the burgers from the burger stand. We also tried the lamb samosa which was good. But the cannoli was a letdown. Nothing special. If you happen to be in London give this place a try. You won’t regret it.” – Christos T.

“Recently bought my car from motor point Chingford and the whole experience was top class right from the initial phone call right through to the service provided at the shop. Our sales rep Osman Ali provided us with excellent care and gave us 100 percent attention from the start of the purchase right through the end. He provided us with all the assistance we required and managed all paperwork to ensure we were completing all necessary forms to ensure a smooth sale. I would definitely recommend Motor point if you want to receive excellence and ease of buying a car and with top quality sales reps. Osman thank you for making this whole experience for us an amazing one.” – Christine N.
