Visitors to BOSFest - a huge FREE celebration of green spaces and community - can expect four stages of live music, DJs, dance performances and workshops, kids’ sports and games, local craft stalls and street food, wellness activities (we're talking free massage!), a BIG plant giveaway, visiting donkeys, an urban beach, and more... Oh and don’t forget the dog show!

This years' festival has a Latin twist, linking up with the community in Elephant and Castle via their inaugural Fiesta Latina Procession. The procession begins with performances at Castle Square before making its way to the Main Stage of BOSfest to be greeted by the Mexican Ambassador to the UK and four dance groups from the Latin American community.

Run by Southwark charity Bankside Open Spaces Trust, the event is now one of the capital’s largest free unticketed street parties. Packed with local performers, this is a real local celebration, and we hope to see you there. For details visit:
