The Great Get Together
“What is the city but the people?”
Coriolanus, A3, s1
On Sunday 24 June Bankside Open Spaces Trust invite you to join the local community at this year’s Great Get Together, a nationwide event inspired by the late Jo Cox MP. Through music, food, art and dance let’s meet our neighbours and have some fun. The event is open to all, from 12 noon – 9pm. Find out more.
What can I see and do?
An extravaganza of food, music, entertainment and competitions including bake offs, bark offs and wacky races for all the family. Star attractions will include a dog show, urban farm, a kid’s zone with birds of prey, zorbing pool, “It’s a Knockout” and maypole dancing.
Expect live music, comedy and dance performed over seven stages. Whether you’re into funk, jazz, classical or country there will be a performance for you. Music will come from SuperGlad, London School of Samba, Pandemonium Drummers (from the London 2012 Olympic Games), Borough Market Choir, Borough Welsh Chapel Choir. Swing Patrol, Zoltan Bihari, and the Gay Men’s Dance Company will get your toes tapping and there will be art a-plenty from Emily Peasgood and a shy, but celebrated local artist.
All that fun is enough to make you very hungry and luckily enough there will be food from around the world available including a Feast on the Street (pre-booking essential) and a Global Picnic.
