29 Mar Pitch Stratford now open for Easter weekend and beyond
Pitch is here for Easter weekend. The alfresco hotspot off Stratford High Street is open, mixing the best of London’s street food scene with a busy new schedule of activities and events. A perfect escape from Westfield Stratford City, the design-led (and weather-proofed!) space serves up chilled outdoor vibes in a colourful urban setting, five minutes walk from Stratford tube. Lined with street food stalls, VIP booths and a craft-focused bar, the bustling venue will always have something going on, from themed film screenings, evening classes and party nights to weekly Friday networking drinks and Sunday DJ brunches.
Open from today right through to Autumn, food will be served up by a trio of popular street food traders: Ticos serves up gourmet hot dogs and slow-cooked beef ribs, Guasacaca will bring traditional Venezuelan pockets of goodness with its signature sauce, while modern Greek specialists Kalimera offer sunshine and souvlaki. Vegan and vegetarian options are also available, alongside homemade churros and crepes from The Pitch Sweet Shack. And to match, draft beers from Camden Town Brewery are complemented by a great selection of craft cans and bottles (including gluten-free beers), plus a neat range of cider, wine, cocktails, premium spirits and mixers.
Pitch will bring a fresh line-up of events each week. Thursdays will be all about new experiences, with a wide range of fun activities to get stuck into. Fridays combine daytime networking with after-work drinks deals, while Saturdays come in three parts: family-friendly street food lunches, followed a good few hours of lazy afternoon / early evenings of alfresco eating and drinking, ahead of a themed party night or outdoor film screening. Sundays are for brunching, with flowing prosecco and DJs bringing a laidback Ibiza vibe to E15.
As the summer months role in, Pitch is set to utilise its massive 196 inch HD screen creating a highly affordable East London outdoor cinema. One of the only outdoor cinemas in the area, Pitch will release film selections further into the season.
