Yesterday saw the Hackney One Carnival, rescheduled after its belated cancellation in the immediate aftermath of the summer riots (and it was exceedingly belated - they closed the roads off assuming it would go ahead, only for it to be called off at the last minute).
They paraded up Stoke Newington High Street, took a left, then partied up to the end of Church Street. After that, I’ve no idea. Maybe they fell off the rim of the earth. Either way, I hope they reappear next year, it lit up the end of what’s been a difficult Hackney summer.
