Plenty of fun in store for everyone this coming July
Millwall Football Club and the Community Trust will again be supporting local events this summer. First up is the Bermondsey Carnival at Southwark Park on Saturday 2nd July and then it’s a trip to Lewisham People's Day at Mountsfield Park in Catford on Saturday, 9th July.
Both events kick off at 12noon and representatives from the Club and Community Trust will be on hand until 5pm, although proceedings normally come to a close at 8pm.
Any youngsters in attendance will be able to meet Millwall mascots Zampa the Lion and Bolina, pick up free 2015/16 match programmes and take part in lots of fun activities organised by coaching staff from the Community Trust.
The activities will include five-a-side football and the popular 'Millwall Challenge', which is the inflatable football shooting target.
First up is the Bermondsey Carnival, which this year welcomes 80s icon Paul Young as the headline act on stage.
Famous for such hit singles as Love of the Common People and Wherever I Lay My Hat, the performance will be one of only two London appearances by the 80s singer on his latest tour.
Other acts confirmed on this year's line-up are local reggae group Indika, Motown trio The Aim, and the internationally renowned Kinetika Bloco, returning for a special carnival parade.
There will be lots for all the family at this year’s event, including the SE16 Dance Hall stage as part of The Beat Goes On - Big Dance Weekend, created by entrepreneur Laura Erwin. This lively stage event will present the best local dancers and give people a chance to have a go themselves at anything from Zumba to contemporary dance.
The day-long event will also feature food from around the world with a huge range of stalls, the annual rumble in the jumble second hand market, and Reuben Bond's funfair.
The following week Millwall will also be in attendance at Lewisham People's Day, where fantastic, legendary reggae band Misty in Roots headline.
There will be a motorcycle display, craft stalls and plenty of food from around the world available, plus much, much more.
Further details to be confirmed, so watch this space!
