Summer by the River

London Bridge’s riverside festival is back.

And it’s really making waves.

This year you can expect a programme of outdoor swing dancing, mass sing-a-longs, film screenings, pop up theatre, bingo, karaoke, brass bands and gospel choirs.

You’ll also be able to catch live music performances by the likes of indie folk band Patch & The Giant; Bob Marley tribute acts; drag race star Vinegar Strokes and the Morning Afters; and a programme of shows run by BBC Music Introducing, showcasing their pick of up-and-coming acts.

While not learning to tango or busting out Gangsta’s Paradise in Hip Hop Karaoke, you can take a load off at the art deco, Miami-styled pop-up bar serving spritzes, Pimms, empanadas, tacos and cubano sandwiches by Taqueria Garcia.

It’s their bread and butter.


NOTE: Summer by the River is running throughout the summer until 2nd September. There are a range of free events going on – you can see the full programme HERE.
