What's going on in Hackney this summer?

We're a local business and our heart will always be in East London - as a letting agent in Hackney we're always interested in what's going on around us. And summer is a fantastic time to be in this part of London. Whether you already live here and you're looking for events to fill up your diary, or you're considering a move, Hackney in summer 2019 is the place to be.

Broadway Market (Saturdays)

If you haven't yet visited one of London's best markets then we'd highly recommend that you make time for it this summer. Broadway market is the best way to spend a Saturday morning in East London in our humble opinion - especially if you're a secret foodie (the Philly 'cheezesteak' from Jake's Vegan Steaks is a must try).

All Points East (24th May - 2nd June)

This festival launched in 2018 and is back for a second year in Victoria Park. The two opening and closing weekends feature headliners such as Christine and the Queens, The Chemical Brothers, Bon Iver and Bring Me the Horizon. In between those dates Victoria Park is playing host to a huge range of free activities, from cinema through to street food and comedy gigs.


Grow Future Fair (8th June)

For those with an interest in more environmentally and socially conscious ethics, the Grow Future Fair sells only items that are reused, recycled, upcycled or zero waste. Expect lots of exciting products, an emphasis on wellness, and an afternoon of canal side music in Hackney Wick.


Big Fish Little Fish family rave (9th June)

East London is renowned for its dance parties but Big Fish Little Fish offer something a bit different - a rave that all the family can attend. A bubble filled dance floor, live DJs and plenty of crafts and face painting will make this a day for all the family to remember.


The London Fields Lido (daily)

If we get the scorcher of a summer that we're promised this year then the London Fields Lido is going to be the place to cool off at. Refurbished in 2017, this swimming spot is a great place to exercise or just hang out and people watch after a refreshing dip.


Hackney Flea market (6th - 7th July)

Head to Abney Hall at 73a Church Street over the weekend of 6th July if you're a keen bargain hunter or looking for some unique vintage pieces. Hackney is renowned for its great finds - this is one of London's best fleas.


Visions festival (3rd August)

This one-day event takes place over six venues in Hackney, including Oval Space and the Sebright Arms. The line up for 2019 includes music from White Denim and Anna Meredith.


Hackney Carnival (9th September)

As the summer comes to an end Hackney celebrates with the annual carnival event featuring 1,000+ performers and plenty of food and dancing. You can get involved with the carnival itself via projects like Hackney Carnival Collective! Or just sit back and enjoy the on-the-day vibes.

Storeys is a letting agent in Hackney and we're proud of the area that we work in. These are just a few of the ways that you can get to know Hackney in summer 2019.


Residential lettings
We pride ourselves on being genuine industry experts, providing a positive experience, from enquiry to after care. Storeys focuses exclusively on lettings, and we value properties, we don’t just list them. Knowledge and innovation mean we can be competitive on costs while also delivering an individually tailored service.
Property management
Storeys is a bespoke offering based on the fundamental principle of value for money – we want happy customers. Paperless tech and eSigning deliver efficiency and convenience, no high street office minimises costs. The result is a streamlined service nimble enough to tailor what we do to suit your needs.
Aesthetics, natural light, building quality, and overall finish – these aren’t ‘extras’ in a Storeys valuation, they’re as much a part of the process as size, condition and location. We look at individual property potential, not generic criteria. Factors like space for modern living arrangements, such as flexible working, are incorporated too. Our valuations are all the more accurate and successful for it. There is a perfect tenant for every property if you know how to find them.
Short-term lettings
Providing value for tenants and continuity for landlords, Storeys short-term lets run from 4 weeks to 6 months. We work with major London relocation teams and a global contacts network to match international tenants to perfect London properties.
Vacant property Management
We can manage your vacant property in-between tenancies or refurbishment, giving you peace of mind that the property is being looked after and inspected on a regular basis.
Superior Marketing
There is just no comparison between static photos and VR when it comes to property marketing. VR allows tenants to do a virtual walk around and get a realistic feel for the property - their expectations are grounded in reality, and properly managed. This makes VR a very effective tool, not just for generating interest and viewings but also converting those to offers. That’s why we partner with VRPM to create a virtual reality perspective for every property we handle.
Airbnb Management
We can manage your Airbnb account and make sure each booking runs smoothly, keys are always available for handover and the property is ready for the next occupation. This can run very well alongside our short-term corporate letting service.
Rent Protection
If your tenant defaults on the rent, Storeys have you covered. We also cover your legal expsenses and pay you rental income if your property is vacant whilst we remarket for new tenants. Don’t worry Storeys have your back.*ask a member of the team for more info. This service is included for every Storeys managed property.
