Brought to you by Bootstrap Charity, the Dalston Roof Park is Dalston’s only rooftop bar and music venue where all profits go towards empowering young people and businesses to succeed professionally.

Each Wednesday we want to give our local community the opportunity to hold an event on Dalston Roof Park. It is important to us that our events programme is relevant to what’s going on in and around Hackney. We are looking for local community groups, promoters or individuals that have an idea that they would like to showcase.

Dalston Roof Park will hand-over their space with no hire fee to community events/projects. The only criteria being that any profit made from your event is either invested back into the community, further development of your project or donated to a charity.

It could be anything from a fundraiser, an event with social impact, a fashion show, film screening, or an event showcasing young people’s talent.

Please submit your ideas for a chance to hold your own community event on Dalston Roof Park to by 31st March 2019.

All applications will be considered and decisions made according to availability.

Some questions for you to consider when applying

1. What is your idea and why would it work on the Roof Park?

2. What is unique about your idea and how will you execute it?

3. Who will be involved and what is their experience?

4. Who is your target audience?
