Taking place on 24.03 from 5:30-11 pm, the Babes on Waves and size? Making Waves event will take over Dalston Roof Park – an urban oasis nestled in Hackey with views of East London’s skyline. You can expect a WOC Makers Market, a live size?sessions set with DJ Talia A. Darling, plus a Martial Arts Showcase, Tooth Gems and plenty more, for you to get involved with whilst meeting like-minded people along the way.
