Bermondsey Street Festival Guide

This Saturday London Wildflower will be featuring at the Bermondsey Street Festival, or the ‘Village fete in the City’. The free event, which is expected to attract crowds of over 12,000 people, will bring together local craft and street food stalls alongside performances including dancing and live music, a mini City farm, and even a dog show!

Festival Highlights 

Bringing a party atmosphere to the streets of Bermondsey, the festival will include a full music lineup with musicians such as the Bermondsey Voices choir, to The Andy Quick band who performed on stage at this year’s Glastonbury festival.

The festival will celebrate food from around Bermondsey with top restaurants and local producers on show from The Pie Cart’s mouthwatering British pies, to St John Bakery’s delectable fare.

Liquid refreshments will also be covered, with local producers from Bermondsey Beer Mile artisans including the Southwark Brewery, to Bermondsey Street staple, The Woolpack.

The Festival will feature craft exhibitors from Artisan Aprons to Rivyl Vinyl. London Wildflower will be based at stall 22B on Bermondsey Street, in front of the White Cube. We’ll have lots of new items for sale on the day, from ring bowls and succulents, to our new clay kits - all at a reduced price on the day!
