The Ritherdon Road Street Party returns!

The Ritherdon Road Street Party returns!

| by Tooting Newsie | Posted in News, Events

The annual Ritherdon Road Street Party returns from 11am to 5pm this Sunday 11 June. 

This year’s event features a bevy of stalls and entertainment. With the road closed to traffic, local residents and visitors will once again enjoy a fantastic family fun-filled event in front of this charming parade of boutique independent shops, cafés, restaurants and businesses located between Balham and Tooting Bec.

Free to enter, the Street Party will feature over 60 food stalls, boutique traders and exhibitors. Hunger pangs will be satisfied by streetfood experts such as Chilli Dogs, Hao Hao Chi, Vegan Express, Fish Tales and Halloumi Room; sweet tooths by Escape the Daily Grind, chocolates by Eloise and Bunting and Pops; and specialist tastes by Brindisa, Peruvian Seafood Cocktails and Jerky Fridays, amongst others. Accompanying refreshment will come in the form of the Sambrook’s beer tent, Whirly Wines and lashings of fresh lemonade.

Visitors can also turn to browsing the host of boutique market stalls which will be selling everything from flowers to doggy treats, retro sweets to jewellery, roll-up beds to children’s clothes, jams to Turkish towels, handbags to hats and silver gifts to handmade toys. Or they can visit the road’s regular businesses: Quirky Dovetail, Bodean's, Spectrum, The French Café, Dee Light Bakery, Robbie's Photographics and Gallery Midnight.

A professional stage will dominate the Balham High Road end of the street and the acts entertaining the masses will include The Hayward Sisters, Tony Moore, kids entertainers Funky Moves, local rock choir Balhamonics and Inspire Ballet & Dance. Elsewhere, Minnie the Clown and Ministry of Giggles will be entertaining children with bubbles and giggles, adding to a funfair ride and visit from the local fire brigade. 

The Ritherdon Road Traders’ Association, the originators of the event, believe the 2017 Street Party will be just as successful as last year’s: “The sun shining down on traders, neighbours and customers alike. Smiling, face-painted children, full tummies and relaxed parents. What a day! What a day!” recalls Johny of Gallery Midnight. “We do it well on Ritherdon Road.”
