Bermondsey Street Festival 15 September
Twelve years ago a dog collar shop and a couple of restaurants got together in Tanner Street Park for a Dog Show and a Maypole, they had a band on the back of a truck. The festival has grown to take over two parks and a street with over 12,000 visitors, the very best food from restaurants in the area and a home grown south London Music stage. A truly local event that reaches out to the diversity of Bermondsey Street and the immediate area. Don’t miss the Dog Show!
