Free folk festival followed by cinema at Biscuit Factory on consecutive weekends in Bermondsey

A Summer Fete and a London-themed Film Festival will be held this September, organised by Grosvenor and Bermondsey Blue Bid.

On Sunday September 11, from midday to 6pm, the traditional free Summer Fete will return to host the finale of the Bermondsey Folk Festival.

Taking place on the former Lewisham and Southwark College campus, where Drummond Road meets Clements Road, the fair will include a Ferris Wheel, a petting farm and swing boats, with all proceeds priced 50p or £1 for Bede House Association.

On Saturday September 17, from 3pm to 5:30pm, the Grosvenor Film Festival weekend will kick off showing old archive footage and docu-films from Southwark Local History Library dating from 1931 to 1988.

Local resident, Gary Magold, selected the films and will introduce these in Building F at the Biscuit Factory, a former warehouse for when the factory was operational.

Access from Clements Road with free entry and refreshments, the event is open for people to come and go.

Three London-themed ticketed screenings will take place over the rest of the weekend; My Beautiful Launderette on Saturday evening, and Paddington then Alfie on Sunday.
