Southwark Council says that a record-breaking 12,000 people attended Saturday’s Bermondsey Carnival in Southwark Park


Cllr Ian Wingfield, deputy leader and cabinet member for business, employment and culture, said, “Bermondsey Carnival was incredible. It was such a great event for everyone to enjoy last weekend at our excellent Southwark Park. People really came out in their numbers to support the wonderful acts and take part in some of the fun activities on the day. I’m delighted it was such a terrific success. A massive thank you to all organisers and everyone that got involved and attended on the day.”

Mayor of Southwark, Cllr Dora Dixon-Fyle said: “It was great to see so many people from the community out at the Bermondsey Carnival. Summer events in Southwark are always a real treat for our residents.  I’m sure that everyone that attended had an amazing time.  The carnival is an amazing opportunity for local groups, traders and entertainers to show people what they do. This year’s line-up of music was fantastic and I was delighted to see so many people enjoying themselves on the day!”

Phil Burkett of Bermondsey Beat said: “What an amazing day! The sun shone, the crowds came, the people smiled and the music played. This was another fantastic and successful Bermondsey Carnival and a perfect example of the community working closely with the council to bring Southwark together for a day in one of London’s best parks. It was such an entertaining weekend. Southwark Park is truly the park with the spark.
