Ninth Day of Christmas
On the Ninth Day of Christmas, we multiply our day by 1,000 to celebrate the just over 9000 of you that come together in unity for our 2nd Great Get Together on 24 June! This huge street party began in memory of MP Jo Cox and her ‘more in common’ message, which echoed through the event again this year.
From ‘Bake Offs’ to ‘Bark Offs’ to street art and street feasts, The Great Get Together Bankside 2018 had something for everyone. On Red Cross Way street food was lifted to banquet level with the Feast on the Street, a seasonal communal meal produced by street food experts Hodge Podge. The feast was just one of the highlights of the day, which also included Castellers of London’s human towers, dancing with Swing Patrol, the Headdress Parade led by the Pandemonium Drummers, the Ultimate Bake Off, Wacky Races, Bark Off dog show and loads of wonderful live performances and music. The England football team’s victory early in the day brought cheerful fans out on to the streets, dancing, singing and learning to swing with Swing Patrol.
Thank you to all our generous sponsors and partners who made The Great Get Together Bankside possible, let’s keep getting together next year!
