Gillett Square is a unique public space in Dalston, playing host to exciting outdoor events as well as providing a place for people to hang out in the heart of the bustling local area. The activity is run by a partnership, in which Vortex works alongside Hackney Co-operative Developments and the London Borough of Hackney
During the year Gillett Square plays host to markets, live music and dance, art exhibitions and evenings of film and photography; it’s also the home of a Pop-up Playground. Occupying the western edge of the square, the Vortex is part of all these events, as well as the every day life of the square. On the ground floor is the Vortex Downstairs which, with plenty of outside seating, so is the perfect place to enjoy a quick drink with friends or a slow evening meal and watch Gillett Square come alive.
