‘IN THE PARK’ MARKET 9AM – 3PM EVERY SUNDAY
November is perhaps best known for Guy Fawkes Night, and rightly so, it is one of the most celebrated days in the calendar year. With gorgeous fireworks displays happening across the UK; and it happening so early in the month, November can feel slightly flat and dull afterwards. However we have a list of exciting events happening throughout the month to make you feel excited leading up and into the ever joyous Christmas time.
Fireworks Display – 5th November – Victoria Park
Although slightly cliché, no November to do list would be complete with a fireworks display. Luckily for all of us in Bethnal Green, one of the best fireworks displays in London happens right next door to us. With an atmospheric soundtrack, food and drinks stall complemented by a culmination of gorgeous fireworks displays, there is simply no better way to spend the 5th of November. With thousands attending every year to see the display, the park will be full and this year promises to be bigger and better than before.
Gates: open at 7.00pm
Victoria Park, Grove Road, Bow, London E3 5TB
Oxford House Nexus – 10th November – Oxford House
Oxford House Nexus is a photographic exhibition and is true celebration of all the things Oxford House has achieved in its history and how it continues to help people in the community. Three photographers (Sarah-Jane Field, John Umney and Keith Greenough) each use different perspectives of Oxford House and the effect it has had on the community. It is sure to be a fantastic event with a varying range of photographs and views exhibited. With other historic buildings within Bethnal Green featured too, this is an exhibition that all residents from the East End of London can enjoy and relate to.
November 10th – 9.00am-10pm
Oxford House, Derbyshire St, Bethnal Green, London E2 6HG, United Kingdom
Zara McFarlane and Gabriel Royal – 15th November – Rich Mix
MOBO Award winner Zara McFarlane will be at Rich Mix, launching and performing songs from her third album. Zara is seen by many as one of the most talented Jazz musicians to come from the UK. With her previous album winning prestigious awards such as a MOBO, and a Jazz FM, her new album is highly anticipated and residents from Bethnal Green have an excellent chance to see her perform live. If that was not enough, then Gabriel Royal will also be performing. The musician is known for his unique way of singing over his own cello playing. With tickets only being £20, this is sure to be an absolutely brilliant evening for an incredibly low price.
November 15th: 7.30pm
Tickets here: £20 +booking fee
35-47 Bethnal Green Rd, London E1 6LA
Sister-Brother -25th November – V&A Museum of Childhood
This exhibition consists of a set of portraits by Madeleine Waller who explores how our identities are affected by the relationships we have with our siblings. It is common, especially once you get older to spend more time with your siblings than with your parents, and thus they help shape fundamental parts of our lives. By using portraits, the exhibition is more personal and one that appeals to most families in Bethnal Green. It is also a great chance for young children to see how other people are shaped and influenced by their siblings.
25th November- 20th May

Oxford House has partnered with London Borough of Tower Hamlets to support the Council’s high street improvement strategy for Bethnal Green.
This partnership formalises the ongoing work Oxford House delivers with the local community, in providing platforms for residents and businesses to both have their say and promote their work. Through the Love Bethnal Green website, the Bethnal Green Business Forum, and now our new series of meetings > The Green, we have tried to show our commitment to the local area, and we look forward to developing these platforms further as part of this partnership.
The Council will work in partnership with Oxford House in Bethnal Green to improve local town centre management practices; to enhance local employment opportunities, and to support delivery of regeneration initiatives. Initiatives being proposed by the local authority will include place marketing and promoting events to help generate footfall; business support programmes; wider business and community engagement activities, supporting consultation on the public realm and other regeneration proposals.
Every month, Oxford House will be inviting local businesses, residents and community groups to a meeting known as “The Green”, which will encourage the community to shape up its own ideas for the high street in Bethnal Green.
These meetings, will take place on the 3rd Tuesday of every month, 6pm, at Oxford House.
