Unvaccinated music fans shun festival offering Covid jab and free food

A FESTIVAL where music fans could get a jab along with free food hit a flat note when only a few turned up.

Vegan burgers, mac ’n cheese and Chinese dumplings were enough to tempt unvaccinated Clark Lin, but others who are unvaccinated were not taking the bait.

The small crowds were treated to music from Lewis Floyd Henry – a one man rocking band, and those there danced away to Nacho Stax – a mix of beatbox and afro-beat grooves.

The festival, organised by Tower Hamlets council and Barts NHS Trust, at Langdon Park in Poplar, Londres est, is on all weekend.

THRILL-seekers can get a Covid jab at Circus Extreme, in Halifax, York Ouest, le samedi.
