April Fools Caravanserai Weekend


Despite blustery beginnings, we enjoyed a wonderful Aprils Fools weekend and opening to the Canning Town Caravanserai. It was great to see so many local organisations, businesses and local people with a hidden talent, joining us over the weekend to share in the Caravanserai fun. We were happy to see a great deal of local chatter and networking going on through-out Saturday, as our hardy stall-holders braved the winds to share their ideas and skills with visitors and rather sweetly, with one another. Sunday welcomed us warmly, and as the sun shone brightly locals and those from further afar, gathered in the Caravanserai to create workshop masterpieces, from arts banners and zoetrope to the giant fish for the afternoon parade. Others simply enjoyed some local Carribean food whilst chilling on our locally made furniture (thanks Lee!) and taking in the afternoons relaxed mood and glorious weather. We would love to thank everyone who came, but most especially all the fantastic stallholders and contributors who made the Caravanserai weekend such a success.
