The event location and general details should be a lot more user friendly. Access to obtaining your ticket must be easier in future. Guests arriving from Hackney Wick Station - there was no signage available to direct your guest. Organisers need to invite more food stalls , waiting for over 45 minutes for food is totally unexpectable, especially when you have young children with you.It is also unreasonable to pay £10 for a glass of rum punch.Really poor organisation from a well known corporate brand.

My partner and I wished the venue was in a larger location to allow more businesses to be promoted. That said we had a fabulous time. The food we had was good and the music played (Calvin Francis segment) was slamming

I like that it was local. I liked the mix of stalls, talks and entertainment and that there were places to sit and watch or sit and eat.

I enjoyed the event but I do feel the prices were very steep. 6 for a jerk hotdog and 7 for a pina coloda smoothie! This limits customers to just spending at one or two stalls at most. Unless your wallet is bottomless

Additionally, there was no seating area. How can people enjoy their food and drink if they have to eat and drink standing? The only seating was in the Grace kitchen and you had to buy their food in order to sit in there.

The other drawback was the ' no 're-entry'. When we left we were specifically told by security that we could not come back in. This was disappointing because obviously we assumed the ticket entitled us to the whole day, especially since we received a stamp on the wrist at entry.

Otherwise the music was good, the food was tasty and the atmosphere was really positive and friendly. I would come again but I think the above comments should be considered.

Attended the london jerk festival at Grow in Hackney wick on 1st September 3019. I was pleasantly surprised how well organised the event was compared to the event in Spital fields in June (the venue there was too small). Grow however was the perfect venue . It didn't feel cramp, It was a nice layout , the facilities were clean and well maintained , enough seating inside should you need it. Would have been nice to have more seating and tables near and around the food stalls . One criticism was the entry fees were too high considering it was just to enter and it would cost a further 20-30 to take advantage of the food and drinks on offer at both the bars and the food stalls. Should be a flat fee of 10 making it affordable for most people and families wanting a day out regardless of their age .

The event on the whole was a pleasant surprise, entertainment, interviews and discussions were good and quite positive. The atmosphere of the day was very friendly and people attending were like minded in sharing and appreciating the cultures of the Caribbean.
A great variety of food stalls but some were quite pricey, I thought it was a missed opportunity for the food stall holders to promote their products and business that would encourage people to seek them out after the event.
More seating areas for people to actually sit and eat their food would have been quite useful.

Grace foods let themselves down by not giving out free merchandising i.e. food products or memorabilia.

I arrived early (2pm) but did not feel like eating until after 6pm by then the stalls I had in mind to eat from had sold out of their main dishes and was left with just chicken wings which did not appeal to me.

The main sound system in the main area was fantastic and captured the mood of the people and the event fantastically (big up to Calvin Francis DJ).

I did enjoy my time here and would gladly attend the next event.

It was a lovely day out with great food music and the atmosphere was electric. Definitely worth going the vendors were all at the top of their game. The entertainment was first class. I now see why the tickets sell out so fast. Luckily I signed up for early bird tickets otherwise I would have had no chance. Loved it. See you guys next year.
