Camberwell Arts Festival is over, and jolly fun it looked too (I was only in town for two of the days it was on, unfortunately). But there’s more to look forward to as, after a 160 year absence, Camberwell Fair returns to the Green on Saturday, 25th July, between 12pm and 8pm.
The fair will showcase the cultural diversity of Camberwell, with music on two stages: the Wormfood stage has established artists playing Afrobeat, Reggae (legend Dawn Penn!), near Eastern, Afro-Colombian and more, and the Community stage playing newer local artists.
Entry will be free, but you’re encouraged to register for a ticket, as ticket holders will be given priority entry when things get busy.
You can get more information from the Facebook event, or by following @CamberwellFair on Twitter. There’s also still time to get involved — you can run a stall, act as volunteer, work on the bar, or make yourself useful in a multitude of ways.
On a related note, every Sunday until the end of September there’s a seafood pop-up at ‘a secret Mediterranean courtyard’ (behind the Sun Cafe on Havil Street). Tickets are £25 a pop, sold in minimums of four.
