Mint Street Music Festival 2019 is taking place on Saturday 13th of July, 11 am to 7:30pm. This FREE event combines a quality line-up of live music with a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, in Mint Street Park, a lovely park just 2 minutes from Borough Tube, off Marshalsea Road. It’s the 6th year the festival has taken place.

Our brilliant line-up includes:

Folk from Away with the Faeries;

Afroswing/Hiphop from Mr Jayvic;

Surf Rock from Sun Bloom;

Acoustic Indie from Jennifer Kamikaze 

Award-winning Latin dance displays from Los Rumberos dance academy

Plus choirs, community music groups, dance groups and spoken word performances.

Music and dance acts for children include Boppin’ Bunnies, plus there’s Heart in Art Face-Painting by Kes and activities with JusPlay Uk.

The festival is single-use plastic free and we’ve been collecting empty crisp packets to make a giant mural highlighting the issues of plastic pollution in the Thames – come and join in! Thames Estuary Partnership will be on hand to explain more.

Don’t miss out on the freshly made street food and drinks from stalls including Mint Street Jerk and Cerviche Creativo.

We rely on volunteers. If you can give a few hours on festival day, please register at
