Roman Road Summer Festival


The Roman Road Trust is an economic and community development group representing the local residents of Bow and the businesses of its high street and market, Roman Road and Roman Road Market, in London’s East End.

Since its creation in 2013, Roman Road Trust has helped launch several regeneration initiatives including Roman Road Festival and the Roman Road LDN website. They also promote Localism and campaign actively on planning issues.


The Roman Road Summer Festival returned for its third year this July and showcased the best of the East End’s talent, heritage, culture and arts all provided in partnership with local businesses, schools and groups.

The Fair worked alongside The Roman Road Trust to project manage the Summer Festival.
