Bermondsey Street Festival 2015
Saturday September 19th 2015, 11am-6pm.
If you've never visited London Glassblowing before, Saturday September 19th is the day to do it! We take you through our top 5 reasons for visiting the Bermondsey Street Festival:
1. Thousands of people can't be wrong...
Founded in 2007, the Bermondsey Street Festival has become a huge attraction for thousands of people each year - a real foodie mecca with lots of fun, local music, art, and crafty things to do, making it one of London's finest!
2. Delicious Local Food & Drink
The entire street is closed to traffic; exciting shops, stalls, eateries and events abound, and the proximity of Borough and Maltby Street markets add a further delicious dimension to the occasion.
3. Studio Sale Bargains!
At London Glassblowing we will have outdoor (and indoor) tables filled with goodies - wonderful 'studio' pieces at bargain prices. In the gallery there will be an amazing mixed-media show entitled 'Synergy' where our team and invited artists have collaborated to create extraordinary new work.
4. Live Glassblowing
In our studio at the rear of the gallery, two of our master glassblowers, Louis Thompson and Anthony Scala will be busy creating astounding pieces for visitors to view.
5. Indian Summer Weather*
All in all this promises to be an extraordinarily fun-filled day for all the family and what's more, unlike Notting Hill, we've organised brilliant weather (*fingers crossed!).
