The Communicators SKA Band – Friday night August 3rd

We are so proud to have our first major gig on the Industri[us] site be such a big one.  We are delighted to welcome one of Britain’s best SKA bands The Communicators to play on Friday night.

Just imagine the legendary band playing with the background of our fantastic structure above, you sitting back drinking quality Real Ale and Real Cider from the Dorset Cider House, enjoying the fantastic street food on offer with the Urban Feasts street food, brushing up on the authentic East London history with the Cockney Museum and enjoying Pie&Mash whose recipe has been unaltered for over 100 years all whilst marvelling at the fact that everything on site is either on loan by one of our kind supporters, has been saved from the landfill or has gained a new lease of life due to the ingenuity of one of partners.
