The Soho Village Fete is Hosted by The Soho Society to bring you a day full of activities for all your family and friends alike.
Head into sunny Soho on Sunday 10 July to St Anne's Gardens, 55 Wardour Street, from 12-6pm.
There will be a lineup of 6 hours of entertainment starting with The Band of the Welsh Guards at 12pm and ending with a Drag Queen finale! Stalls will be set up with food, retail and community options. There will be a bar stall run by one of your favourite Soho spots for a pint, The French House. Some incredible activities to keep you entertained include a Spaghetti Eating Competition, Human Fruit Machine and Snail Racing. Don't miss out on the Tug Of War competition between the Soho Fire Station and Soho Police.
The main event of the day is, of course, the Waiter's Race! The Race routes up Dean Street, round Soho Square and back down Greek Street, tracking across Romilly Street and back to the French House Pub. Balancing a tray, bottle of champagne, glass and ashtray, the rules are strict and the competition is fierce.
What is a fete without a raffle? Some of the most amazing independent businesses across Soho have donated prizes to be won by you!
