Patchworks, Leyton

A community-driven local gem

To some, me included, Saturdays, regardless of the previous night’s outcome are for discoveries. The spectrum according to the energy and hangover levels might vary from a new town (Margate, Folkestone, Whitstable to name a few) to a canal side pub, from a new stall in a familiar market, to a route taken accompanied by foxes. Needless to say, my favourite activity is the discovery of a new neighbourhood.

Patchworks, Leyton community space


With a 10:00 a.m. message flashing on my phone screen on a sunny October morning, I took the Jubilee line followed by route 158 to arrive in Leyton, for a flea market - I assumed. Instead, I found myself at Patchwork. Part furniture factory, part creative space. This community-driven venue with one of the best toasted vegan bagels I have ever tasted in London, has weekly workshops, markets, open mic nights, and gatherings for children. I’m going back on the 29 October for Culture + Street- Food Market. You can find your own reason to go on their website.
