Unfortunately I couldn't make it along but I wondered if anyone else had and whether it was any good? Are there any other local festivals/fairs planned that anyone knows about?

i did call in briefly about 1pm , very little of interest for me although I did see the lady from the Bra Fitting Shop.Normally hidden behind glazed windows. Not sure if she was doing any fittings on Sunday.
I like to support local events but I remember the Dulwich Day in Dulwich Park about 2 years ago. About 5 times plus bigger and many interesting stalls plus real ale.

I thought it was great - I went with three kids who loved Punch & Judy, and the bouncy-castle-dragon. The face painters were good, as were the bands and the Tour de France roadshow. Lots of refreshments from Provender and various other vendors. I also took advantage of the 5 herbs for £5 deal from the Shannon's stall that seemed to be doing good trade.

It was also as busy as I have ever seen the Horniman Gardens basking in the sun, so that's a good thing in itself.

Good effort I think. (Although my 8-yr old godson was mortified by the idea of an outdoor brashop!)
