Living Bankside is hosting this year's Great Get Together Bankside as the street party returns to being an in-person event.
Now in its fifth year, The Great Get Together Bankside is part of a nationwide series of activities inspired by the memory of the late Jo Cox MP.
The theme of this year's event will be 'getting our community back together' after the challenges we have all faced in the last year due to the pandemic.
The event will also celebrate the #moreincommon message and to champion our city's arts, culture and hospitality to support the Mayor of London's #letsdolondon initiative.
Due to Covid restrictions, the Bankside event is taking place later than usual but will coincide with the arrival of over sixty bike riders who will have cycled from Batley and Spen in Yorkshire as part of the "Jo Cox Way".
The riders which will include Kim Leadbeater MP (and sister of Jo Cox) will, once again, end their five-day journey in Bankside and will help kick-off the Great Get Together.
Festivities will include: the ever-popular dog show – the Bankside "Bark-Off" with BBC's Anna Webb; Bake-Off; Wacky Races; an array of music, street performances, creative installations, and of course stalls from community groups.
The event will be officially opened by a special guest who has made a big impression online during the pandemic.
