Fabulously eccentric village fete including a dog show, spaghetti-eating contest, a tug-of-war between the Soho police and fire brigade, a human fruit machine and the famous Soho Waiters’ Race, where local waiters hurtle through the streets with a bottle of fizz balanced on a tray. There’s also live music and entertainment, food stalls and a bar from Soho stalwart The French House.
This has a lovely community feel and is really worth a visit. Top tip – get involved in the raffle. Five tickets costs just £10 and prizes include theatre and cinema tickets, champagne, family-sized cakes and a whole host of meals for two in Soho favourites such as Bocca di Lupo, 10 Greek Street, Lina Stores and Karma Sanctum.Organisers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice.
