Doughnut: The Outer London Festival

Our love for the city is orbital

When people talk about London, it's outer edges often get overlooked. Which is a crying shame really, considering that most of us live in Zones 3 and outwards. Doughnut is challenging this. The Outer London Festival will celebrate the culture of boroughs outside of the city centre. There will be pop-up stalls, markets, music and family friendly activities, alongside a screening of The Inbetweeners and a Q&A with the writers, plus talks and discussions from Will Self, Hanif Kureishi and many more. Remember – there's more to London than Soho and Shoreditch. The programme: Session One - 11am: The Future of the Green Belt – speakers include Andy Groarke, Lynn Kinnear, Barney Stringer, Ellis Woodman and Tom Holbrook - 12pm: Outer London Landscapes with Andy Groarke, Lynn Kinnear and William Mann Session Two - 2pm: Suburbia and the New Life: Reflections on the Essexodus with Patrick Wright, Gillian Darley and Ken Worpole - 3pm: Future of Housing in the Periphery – Wouter Vanstiphout and Michelle Provost Session Three - 5pm: The Buddha of Suburbia Book Discussion – Will Self and Hanif Kureishi - 7pm: The Inbetweeners: screening and writers' Q&A Day tickets include access to all sessions. Session tickets can also be purchased separately.
