Autumn has arrived which not only means we can throw on our comfiest jumpers on and indulge in seasonal hot drinks, but it’s also that little be closer to one of the biggest sporting events, the FIFA World Cup. To celebrate the footy tournament taking place during the months of November and December, Escape to Freight Island has announced a Festival of Football.
Hosted across different areas and zones within the venue, the food market will transform the Platform inside into a big fan zone and a dedicated pub zone, which will be located in the tap room with intimate and traditional pub setting. Outside, in the covered and heated Plant Room, Festival of Football will host a family and children friendly zone.
All free to attend, all of the England games will be shown on the big screen in the Platform, as well as in the pub zone and family zone. In addition to this, other World Cup 2022 matches will also be screened in the pub zone throughout the tournament, which will take place in Qatar.
Plus, Escape to Freight Island will be offering more than live streaming, as the Festival of Football will present a series of festival-inspired happenings, including special food and drink offerings – in collaboration with Camden Town Brewery, there will be bookable tables with free flow pints and more deals. Alongside this, there will be half-time entertainment, including walkabout musicians and live brass bands, plus Escape to Freight Island’s residents and finest performers.
Across the venue, Escape to Freight Island will also host pop-up shops selling vintage shirts, and a series of interactive games, pub quizzes, and special guest appearances. Festival of Football at Escape to Freight Island will screen the FIFA World Cup 2022 from Monday 21st November until Sunday 18th December. You can book free tickets to Festival of Football here.
