The Trader’s Association of St John’s Hill will host the 5th annual festival on Sunday 8th September 2013 from 11am to 5pm.
This free event will feature a variety of stalls and activities; the traders will be opening their doors onto the pavements, and the bunting-lined street will be packed with activities and visiting stalls reaching from Marcilly Road to the Plough pub. There will be all the usual festival favourites: the Great Golden Goldfish racing outside FishClub, the beer festival at The Beehive - and - returning to the hill once again are Wimbledon’s wonderful Greensleeves Morris Men - catch their performances at 1.30pm and 3pm. The children's bouncy castle will also be back for festival fun.
Visiting stall holders will be bringing their offerings to the hill - a huge variety of high-quality goods ranging from Portuguese food and freshly baked cakes, ice cream, jewellery, aloe vera skin produces, clothing and accessories. The bars, restaurants and cafes along the hill will serve cuisines from all around the world - including Indian, Eritrean, British and Italian. Also, keep your eyes peeled for the hog roast at the Beehive pub!
This year there will be performance stage outside the London Cycle Workshop - join in with zumba and other energetic pursuits throughout the day.
The festival will be hosting a raffle to help raise money for the local cause: the St John’s Hill Community Project. All the prizes have been kindly donated by the traders of St John’s Hill and these will be added to one mega prize fund, for one very lucky winner! Visitors may buy their raffle tickets from traders on St John’s Hill in advance and from the raffle stall on the day. The winner will be announced at the festival at 4pm outside the Beehive pub.
