The 3rd instalment of the annual Bermondsey Folk Festival draws on the experience of previous years offerings with a format aimed at celebrating our local pubs and community and with the duel aim of raising awareness of the thriving Bermondsey craft beer industry, all in one day, Saturday, 9th of September 2017
The festival will begin at The Queen Victoria with a guided walk by Arthur Smith to Market Place for a performance by the Alasdair Roberts Trio. Then it’s a short stroll to the famous Blue Anchor for Cunning Folk. Just a mere stone’s throw to Market Place where to replenish with food or drinks outside The Old Bank or head to the stall with the Beer Mile beers with beers on taps while being entertained with Frog Morris, Circus Skills and Morris Dancing . The music takes central stage with Stick in the Wheel and headliner the incomparable Martin Simpson. But the party is not over as it is time to visit Shortwave Cafe at the Biscuit Factory for the late gig with Thomas McCarthy and supporting acts.
