The Bermondsey Street Festival has grown to become a highly anticipated annual fixture in the area’s social calendar and Garrett Whitelock is proud to be one of the sponsors of this fantastic community event.
Part of the local community
Offering the perfect blend of village fête folksiness and Bermondsey Street style, the event encourages people to come together, show off their talents, share their stories, meet new people, try new things and have fun!
The event takes place in and around Bermondsey Street each September and offers a unique line-up that celebrates everything local. Music plays a big part in the Festival, with a mix of dub, afro-beat, folk, ska and soul performed on the stages in Tanner Street Park, Whites Grounds and on the Community Stage in Leathermarket Gardens, whilst a wide choice of food is on offer thanks to the Festival’s close collaboration with the area’s many eateries.
The Festival is a free ‘not for profit’ event run entirely by volunteers from the local community for the local community and aims to develop understanding and tolerance of people from different backgrounds.
