Bermondsey Folk Festival and films

Bermondsey Folk Festival concluded in the sun last Sunday 11th September with a fine music stage at the Bermondsey Summer Fete at Compass School SE16,

There was Irish dancing from Bermondsey-based Carragher Academy:

And lots of good music - I caught the Bara Bara Band (who host Tooting Folk) and  Tim Jones & The Dark Lanterns (pictured below):

Stalls included one from the Biscuit Factory Museum with tins and publications from the old Peak Freans factory. Tomorrow (Saturday 17 September, Biscuit Factory Museum founder Gary Magold is showing archive film footage of the Bermondsey area as part of the Grosvenor Film Festival at the Biscuit Factory (Building F, 100 Clements Roads SE16). The free films, showing from 3:00 pm to 5:30 pm will include a 1939 May Day and a 1988 documentary on the biscuit factory as it was closing down.
