Camberwell Fair 2019 will return to Camberwell Green on 31st August 2019, 12pm-9pm.
Free for all to attend, it will welcome 4000 people from Camberwell, surrounding areas and all over London to come together to meet each other, eat, drink, dance, trade and celebrate.
This will be the 5th Camberwell Fair in modern times, but there was a Fair on the same site from 1279-1855 until shut down by the authorities for ‘immoral and riotous behaviour’. Camberwell has changed a lot since those times, and the Fair of course reflects the people of modern Camberwell, but the spirit is the same – a chance for the whole community to come together and unite.
Attractions: 2 live music stages ∆ DJ stage ∆ Market ∆ Games ∆ Local craft beers ∆ Local street food
The Wormfood stage will welcome internationally renowned artists: African, jazz, soul, dancehall and psychedelic music. The Camberwell Stage, programmed in partnership with local music charities and showcase organisations, will provide a platform for emerging artists. Local market specialists Pexmas will curate a market with 30+ market stalls showcasing local businesses and organisations, plus a food market, bars, DJ stage run by local restaurant and bar Louie Louie, and participatory games for both children and adults.
In addition to the Fair itself, watch out for the ‘Enterprise Programme’ and ‘Artist Development Programme’, offering training, showcase and mentoring opportunities in the run-up to the Fair – details coming soon!
