A traditional-themed fete offering fun for all the family is taking place at the Biscuit Factory, Clements Road, Bermondsey, on Sunday 6 September from 12 until 6pm.
Organised by Grosvenor Britain and Ireland (Grosvenor) in partnership with The Blue Bermondsey Business Improvement District, the fete will feature fairground classics to entertain young and old alike, including a Helter Skelter ride, petting farm, coconut shy and swing boats.
Local music acts will perform live on stage, along with some of the best talent on the London folk music scene forming the finale of the inaugural Bermondsey Folk Festival. Visitors will not go hungry or thirsty with plenty of food and drink on offer from local businesses.
The fete is free entry. All proceeds from entertainments and activities, priced at 50p or £1, go to Bede House Association, a Southwark charity which supports local people in creating better lives for themselves, their families and their communities.
Kate Nottidge, Community Engagement Manager for Bermondsey at Grosvenor, said: “I’d encourage everyone to come and join in the fun at the Biscuit Factory. It will be a great chance to come together with neighbours and the wider community and enjoy the festivities with all proceeds helping to support the fantastic work of Bede House.”
Grosvenor purchased the former Peek Frean Biscuit Factory and Lewisham and Southwark College sites in 2013. In the past two years it has been getting to know the local community, developing active partnerships so that all can, together, inform the future of the two sites.
