Everyone is invited to take part in Myatt’s Fields Park summer fair and family fun day which will be held on 22nd June 2013.

This year the event will be organised in partnership with local charity the Cherry Tree Trust and it will be bigger and better than ever – starting at 11am and continueing through to 6pm.

There’ll be a full day of entertainment including rock steady music and live bands on the bandstand, a talent contest and ballet performance in the picnic area, a football tournament, the family fairground and a plant sale. As part of Camberwell Arts Week, the park will also have an art fair this year, and artists can pay to hang work for sale on railings outside the park.

You can get involved too and development/education officer Victoria Sherwin tells you how:
