McDonald’s stops unofficial Dalston ‘summer terrace party’ after nearly 3,000 revellers vow to turn up

McDonalds has axed an unofficial party after nearly 3,000 nugget-munching revellers threatened to descend on an east London branch.

Partygoers had planned to cram into the Kingsland Road branch in Dalston on July 7 for what one punter described as a “rave” on its roof terrace.

On a Facebook page called Dalston McDonald’s Summer Terrace Party, nearly 2,800 people said they would be going with another 5,600 expressing an interest.

The page simply said: “Dalston McDonalds now have an outdoor roof terrace. Bring nuggets. Limited seating available.”

But event organisers Turn It Up warned people on Wednesday they had to cancel after the fast food giant voiced concern about the event, which was due to run from midday until midnight.

They wrote: “Ok so Maccers have emailed us and they’re pretty p****d off. 

“They’re even suggesting to stop serving nuggets on that date which ruins the ENTIRE PLAN.

“So we gotta pull the plug on this people.”

Some disappointed punters threatened to turn up at the venue anyway. 

A spokesman for McDonald’s told the Standard: “We’re usually more than happy to host a party, however they tend to be for our Happy Meal customers and involve face painting and character visits.

“Our outside terrace in Dalston is a small seating area designed for up 20 customers to eat and enjoy their food with friends and family.  

“We’re sorry to disappoint those who were planning to attend but we don’t have a licence for such an event, and for obvious safety reasons, Turn It Up has kindly agreed to cancel their unofficial party.”
