cambfair2019

Another summer is coming to an end, and another Camberwell Fair is ready to salute it in style.

The free-entry, organic and historical event, organised in the last five years by Wormfood and Pexmax, will liven up Camberwell Green on the last day of August, offering you its exciting London-meets-the-world line-up.

From noon to 9pm, get ready to be busy dancing to the notes of Afro-Latin jazz big band Colectiva, DjeuhDjoah & Lieutenant Nicholson and their Afro-funk joie de vivre, the electro-gnawa of Electric Jalaba, far-out electro-psych band HENGE, dub & reggae collective Samson Sounds, and many, many more musicians, bands, DJs, artists, crafts, food and drinks stalls…

Centuries have passed, and times have changed, but the Camberwell Fair will open its gate once again to give you the time of your life.
