The Bermondsey Street Festival is a not for profit free community festival run entirely by volunteers from the community for the community.
With Festival our aim is to bring together all the people from all parts of our diverse community and communally enjoy a rich and wide variety of experiences that truly reflect our area while ensuring tastes and experiences normally beyond reach are available to all.
Key to our objectives here is to develop the community understanding and tolerance of people from different backgrounds and we work closely with the high end restaurants of Bermondsey Street and of The Shard to bring new cuisine experiences to many while dogs as diverse as the community they represent ferociously compete in our acclaimed Dog Show.

The choir is going really well. It’s been a year already and we’ve grown to 35 members now, which it beyond all expectation!
Performing at the BSF last year was a fantastic opportunity for the group. Many of them had, until that point, never sung in public before, and had joined our choir as a way of making new friends, and building confidence.
Just a big thanks to your team for putting on such a great event. Initially I thought we had a dud location because we at the quiet end and in the shade, but it really worked well for the chocolate to avoid the sun, and because it wasn’t so congested people were more inclined to stop and have a chat, sample, etc. And, we sold out by 3pm. Not bad going.
The vibe at market was excellent. A nice crowd. Keen to not only try and buy, but also seemed to genuinely want to know more about the various traders on the street.
We had an enjoyable time and made many new contacts for the CGP London galleries and hopefully recruited some new members for the Bermondsey Artists’ Group.
Thank you very much for giving us the opportunity to have a fund raising stall.
We raised just over £155.00 on our tombola.
We also had the opportunity to speak to many people and who seemed very interested and explain what Southwark Helping Hands does for adults with learning disabilities.
thank you so much for inviting me! It was great, business was fantastic for me, and i assume for everybody, really! I loved the music, and i think the stalls were eclectic and interesting! I ended up buying a vintage scarf. I would definitely come again! i think good bands are a recipe for success.
Hope to see you next year!
It was one of the best street festivals we have ever done and we thought it was very well organised.
We did not miss bunting or balloons at all, it was great.
We were delighted with our sales, enjoyed the music and thought the dog show was lovely.
