Organising a week of activities, taking into account the focal theme.
22 September
Hackney Council has been at the forefront of World Car Free Day for a number of years. Car Free Day provides an opportunity for the public to experience our streets car-free, creating safe spaces for the public to occupy.

To mark Car Free Day 2019, Hackney Council will be celebrating in 2 ways: Stoke Newington Church Street will be closed to motor vehicles to create car-free space for the public to enjoy and play street hosts across the borough will celebrate with a mass play street event.

More information on Car Free Day in Hackney here:
Carrying out a Car-Free Day event by closing one or more streets to traffic, and opening it to pedestrians, cyclists and public transport. This should preferably happen on 22 September to mark your town or city as part of World Car-Free Day.
