Saturday 2 November
The Spirit of Burgess Park Event
11am - 2pm: Pop by the van and have your stories of 'coming together' recorded by Rebecca Davies in exchange for an illustration.
1pm - 3.30pm: We will also host drop in workshops where you can create your very own masks/regalia.
3.30pm: Don your creations during the procession led by the Spirit of Burgess Park, which will go from Chumleigh Gardens to The Bridge To Nowhere.
4pm: It's bingo with a Burgess twist. Get involved in three games of Southwark themed Bingo - that's three chances of winning the most extraordinarily surprising surprise ever (sort of).
