WELCOME

WELCOME9-01

Bermondsey Street Festival is an annual celebration of music, dance, arts, cuisine and creativity in our local area. It is entirely volunteer-led and we like to think of it as our village fete in the city.

 

21st September 2013 11am to 6pm

We’ll have the ever popular Bermondsey Street Fashion Show and dog show, along with a huge variety of stalls from some of the best designer-makers in the area. There’s some great music ranging from Americana and ska-reggae on the ‘Bliss’ music stage, to acoustic performances from local singer-songwriters in the ‘Acoustic garden’. If you would like to perform please contact Greg by emailing performing@bermondseystreetfestival.org.uk . Particularly we would welcome additional applications for scratch theatre performances or contemporary dance to add to the programme.

Mary Magdalen Church are holding performances in the church including a free classical concert from’ Bach to Baby’ founder and local mum Miaomiao Yu, suitable for the whole family (www.bachtobaby.com). There’s also bouncy castles and games in the Churchyard.

Each year the festival has grown in popularity, largely through word of mouth. Many thanks to everyone that comes along, and keeps coming back, making it such a special day. Help spread the word!

How the festival is organised

We always appreciate assistance with setting up on the day or if there is an activity you would like to see, and think you could help provide it, please do get in touch. We welcome your ideas. Additionally if you have experience and/or contacts that you think would be helpful, please let us know.

We are very grateful for the support that we receive from our sponsors (in cash and in kind) as well as income from our wide range of traders. We are also very glad of the continuous support provided by Southwark Council.

As always, we could do with more help – both in terms of sponsorship and donations and volunteers to make it all happen. Contact us if you would like be part of the team.
