For the first time in its history, Southwark Bridge will be closed to traffic and become a magical setting for this Feast on the Bridge.
The bridge will be transformed by a team of artists into a series of extraordinary eating areas: an enchanted woodland picnic; a traditional British seaside; a formal banquet; a lounge bar; an Indian wedding celebration; and a village fete. Visitors will be invited to share a unique opportunity to eat, drink and make merry al fresco with fellow Londoners. Food will be cooked on the bridge and include everything from hog roast to curry, fresh oysters to tea and cake. There will be an array of activities in celebration of Harvest with pumpkin-carving, apple-bobbing and bread-baking.
The event will provide a unique opportunity to sample some of Bankside's food offerings. Local restaurants and Borough Market traders will take part in 'Feast on the Bridge'.
The bridge will also feature an al fresco ballroom with a lively programme of music that will reflect each of these extraordinary areas from Hoe down to bagpipes, Bollywood, surf rock, gypsy brass and the best of British country dancing. So come prepared to dance and join in the revelry.
