Rocking and rolling around the Bandstand

Published: 29 June 2016

Dust off your rock 'n roll skirts and leather jackets and get ready for the 2016 Live at the Bandstand: Rockabilly and Rock ‘n’ Roll.

This year Battersea Park’s beautiful bandstand has been programmed by The Magic Garden Pub and includes the Lavender Hillbillies, The Orange Circus Band and Big Joe Louis.

The Bedford Pub will be bringing a well stocked bar with wine, beers, Pimms and soft drinks and there will be a huge variety of food stalls from American burgers and sliders to wood fire pizzas.

Browse a selection of market stalls selling children’s clothing and gifts. Face painting and the ever popular Wax Hands will be at the event, alongside Carter’s funfair and the Friends of Battersea Park stand.

Jessica Hart or Lola Glass will offer free vintage hair styling and make up and Wandsworth Radio will be broadcasting live.
