Bankside Open Spaces Festival is a free community celebration run by environmental and volunteering charity Bankside Open Spaces Trust. On Friday 3 June, performers young and old, community groups, artists, sports coaches, musicians, singers, dancers, and pampered pooches of all sizes will take to the street of London’s SE1 to make the most of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Weekend – and we’d love you to join us too!
Bankside Open Spaces Festival is open to all and you don’t need a ticket – making it an accessible Bank Holiday celebration. The festival is designed to ensure everyone, even those without their own outdoor space, has a place to get together and enjoy the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. Festival goers can also make up a special pot of flowering plants to take home as a living memento of this very special year.
Running from 12-9pm on 3 June, festival goers can expect: live music on our Flat Iron Square Main Stage; stalls and activities running down Union Street; a reflective art installation in Crossbones Graveyard; djs and performances on the street; sport, kids’ craft and our Borough Beach in Marlborough Sports Garden; food, wellbeing activities and acoustic music in Red Cross Garden and down Redcross Way; and don’t forget the dog show! There’s something for everyone, and you can get involved too by volunteering, running a stall or performing – just visit our website to find out how.
Bankside Open Spaces Festival promises to be a right royal knees up in London’s SE1 – see you (and your doggos!) there.
