If you're planning to attend any events at The Backstreet this weekend - in particular the BLUF & IGNITE event on Friday, note that the annual Lovebox festival is taking place in Victoria Park, which is not far away.
This means that bus routes in the area will be diverted, and from previous experience the diversions can be very long, especially as the streets round the park will be full of people leaving Lovebox around the time most people head to Backstreet. We do not advise that you attempt to travel to Backstreet via any bus route that goes through Victoria Park (including 277 and 425).
You should travel by tube instead, to Mile End. The station will be busier than usual, but you won't run the risk of being stuck on a bus that's not moving for 45 minutes.
