Local musicians and vocalists, artisans and cooks, fashion designers and jewelers, hounds and historians, are all set for the the second Bermondsey Street Festival.
Tanner Street Park is the verdant heart of the area, and where this year's Bermondsey Street Festival aims to celebrate the creative talent of this friendly, mixed and lively quarter. This atmosphere is personified by festival patron Zandra Rhodes who will be there on the day.
To celebrate the creative talent of the area a fashion show will run during the afternoon. Featuring clothes and accessories designed in the area, the local models, male and female, will also have their make up and hair and refined by local specialists.
The Festival features a stage for the best local performing talent, and a host of stalls with alluring locally produced clothes, jewellery, glass, arts and other crafts. And don't miss the famous dog show, judged by TV vet Marc Abraham.
For people curious about the area's fascinating and long history a local historian and Blue Badge guides will be on hand to answer questions and take you on short walks. For those wishing for more active recreation there will be games and activities for children of all ages, including a tennis work out and coaching session - so all is game set and match for an afternoon of fun for everyone! And if the excitement gets too much, relax with a seated massage.
No event in Bermondsey Street could be without the presence of its renowned restaurants and bars. So expect mouth watering burgers and food from the likes of The Garrison, and refreshing summer cocktails from The Hide Bar and Village East. Linger over lovely Greek pastries from Fotis.
In the evening the first outdoor film screening at the new Bermondsey Square development will take place from 7pm. The opening film is The Rocky Horror Picture Show, complete with the shadow cast and Pat Quinn, an original cast member!
