Get This – Northcote Road Summer Fete is this Sunday!
The Northcote Road Summer Fete is this Sunday 6th July. After months of planning I have plenty of emotions regarding this event. Like a proud mother on their child’s first day of school – I feel proud, excited, and sad that my baby is all grown up.
It’s definitely shaping up to be an incredible day – we’re closing off the road and the pavements will fill up with all sorts of activities across the entire length of the road. Food and drink, market stalls, community ping pong tables, a performance stage, three different fairground rides and plenty of games to boot. You can even buy unlimited ride wristband from Hamptons International or All Good Gifts for £15!
Everyones favourite Northcote road shops, bars, restaurants and businesses will open their doors and spill out on to the street, offering everything a summer fete should. There will also be a pop-up market full of visiting stall holders from Battersea and beyond selling beautiful jewellery, handmade cards, childrens clothing, homewares, delicious food, and much much more.
What I’m most looking forward to on the day though is watching the Wimbledon Men’s final on the big screen! This year the screen is even bigger than last year – I’m hoping that the match is as epic as last year!
I can’t thank the good people at Hamptons International enough – specifically Jonathan Dyson and the ever wonderful Emma Madsen. It’s been a pleasure and a privilege to work with Lorinda Freint who is the Clapham Junction Town Centre Manager – I’ve certainly learnt a lot for her and look forward to working with her more in the future.
Hope to see you all Sunday! Let us know what you’re looking forward to seeing or doing at the Northcote road event – leave a comment below or tweet us @GertrudeAndIvy
