Fourth Bermondsey Street Festival draws a crowd

The sun shone for the Bermondsey Street Festival on Saturday. What started as a small event in Tanner Street Park in 2006 now fills the street from Crucifix Lane to Bermondsey Square.

The Bermondsey Street Area Partnership organises the annual event which brings together local businesses, cultural organisations and residents for a day of food, drink and entertainment.

Art and craft stalls lined the street, with a range of food stalls in Tanner Street Park and Bermondsey Square.

This year the fashion show was held in the yard of the former Recall warehouse. The compere was local resident Shona Collins, winner of Channel 4's Miss Naked Beauty 2008.

The show began with clothes by festival patron Zandra Rhodes and jewellery by Andrew Logan. As well as pieces from the Horrockses Fashions exhibition at the Fashion & Textile Museum, the show featured the latest designs from Pierre Garroudi, Cockfighter, Pussy Willow and other locally-based fashion designers and stores.

The dog show, organised by Holly&Lil, was another highlight of the day.

The evening programme included the premiere of Kevin Dolan's new film about Bermondsey Antiques Market as well as an open-air screening of The Wizard of Oz.
