Music, dancing, food and drink at the free Borough Jubilee Festival next weekend

Highlights include Britain’s Got Talent 2018 finalists D-Day Darlings, performing wartime songs, Swing Patrol, who will host dance lessons, a dog show judged by BBC Radio London dog expert Anna Webb, and the Taboo dance company.

Hear ‘Britain’s first wartime act’, catch a dog show, take a swing dancing lesson, spill a boozy slushie and more next Friday (June 3) as the free Bankside Open Spaces Festival returns for a jubilee edition.

Charity Bankside Open Spaces Trust organizes the music, dance and family activity event in three main areas around Union Street in the borough – Flat Iron Square, Red Cross Garden and Marlborough Sports Garden.

Highlights include Britain’s Got Talent 2018 finalists D-Day Darlings, performing wartime songs, Swing Patrol, who will host dance lessons, a dog show judged by BBC Radio London dog expert Anna Webb, and the Taboo dance company.

The story of Queen Bermondsey’s unsung hero after a failed assassination attempt

Local group Soft Shell Crabs will also perform a song saying goodbye to two former Lib Dem councilors from Borough and Bankside wards, Adele Morris and David Noakes.

The day will begin with a memorial service at Crossbones Cemetery, led by Father Christopher of the Church of the Most Precious Blood, for the victims of the London Bridge terror attack, which took place five years ago.

Flat Iron Square will host the main stage. The Red Cross Garden will be a more relaxed environment with arts and crafts, as well as the dog show and live acoustic music. Marlborough Sports Garden will also offer music and dance concerts, as well as sports and dance workshops.

In between, Union Street and Redcross Way will be packed with stalls offering street food and drink, as well as two more music venues.
