A Fairy Bread Fete Is Coming To Town

Saturday 18th January

Two of our favourites have joined forces for a Fairy Bread Fete in Kingsland this Saturday. From 11am-6pm at the Garage Project Kingsland, Duck Island will be bringing their bespoke weird and wacky ice cream flavours such as miso and ginger bourbon pecan to the table as Garage Project launch their latest creation - Fairy Bread natural wine. There’ll be special treats such as fairy bread ice cream tacos and beer floats, as well as six beers on tap, wine, and flights with a live set from DJ duo Revival to take you through the afternoon.
