Where: Mercato Metropolitano, 42 Newington Causeway, London, SE1 6DR. The venue is primarily a street food market but the site also contains the Backyard Cinema, a food store selling Sicilian produce, a wine store, a workshop area and plenty of seating. Here is a review which should give you a flavour for the space.
Closest Stations: Elephant & Castle / Borough. There is an unloading bay directly in the back of the venue if you are driving. You will need to arrange your own parking - there are a small number of free of charge spaces in nearby Avonmouth Street. The market will be held indoors - there is lighting and heating. We will also have a range of workshops running as part of the event.
