Southwark Council is calling on local organisations, traders or performers to get in touch and be a part of 2014’s Bermondsey Carnival. Whether you are a charity, food and drink specialist, dancer or musician – Southwark wants to hear from you.
Last year more than 6,000 people attended the free event to celebrate the summer in Southwark and all it has to offer. This year’s event will take place on Saturday 28 June at Southwark Park, and with live music, a funfair and entertainment for all the family – this year’s event is set to be another great day out.
A council spokesperson said: “The carnival is an amazing opportunity for local groups, traders and entertainers to show people what they do. It is a platform like no other, so we would really encourage everyone to get involved this year, even if it’s offering an extra pair of hands on the day, and help us make 2014 one to remember.”
Southwark events like Bermondsey Carnival can only happen with the help of local volunteers, so whether you have volunteered before in a similar event or not, the carnival is a great opportunity to get involved and have a fun and rewarding day out at the same time. Volunteer opportunities include assisting artists and performers, stewarding parades, setting up event areas and stage managing.
So if you have a fun and exciting idea for this year, or want to put yourself forward as a volunteer – get in touch with the events team and take part in this year’s carnival. http://www.southwark.gov.uk/bermondseycarnival
