JOHNS&CO LCI celebrated summer in style at The Islander Festival on Saturday 23rd July. In conjunction with Eco World and Ballymore, this was a truly fantastic day of festivities, where Islanders and guests could enjoy all that London City Island had to offer.
The atmosphere at the event was electric with start to finish, from live music and DJ sets to cocktail making classes. The morning started off with a relaxing alfresco yoga class presented by East London group Hum Yoga, which allowed guests to partake in a guided class, giving them a peaceful and reflective start to their day. Shortly after, children’s entertainers Sharky and George took to the stage putting on a high energy, interactive show that got the little ones up and causing (controlled) chaos! The children went crazy for the water balloons fights, tug of war and lots more from the group. Live music and DJ sets followed for people to sit back and enjoy, and maybe even get up dance to, before segueing into some beautiful performances from the English National Ballet and more.
JOHNS&CO were pleased to sponsor talented face painters Squiggles and Wiggles for the event, and all the kids (and some adults!) absolutely loved it. JOHNS&CO also ran a “guess how many sweets are in the jar” competition throughout the day, with the prize being a much-coveted Nintendo Switch. We were pleased to announce our winner on our Instagram and award them with this fantastic prize.
It was a wonderful day that really highlighted how the special the London City Island community is, and our team had a great time being a part of it. We loved mixing with residents, catching up with familiar faces from London City Island, and getting to meet people from the wider east London area.
