Celebrating its 20th Anniversary this year, the annual Abbeville Fete will return to Clapham this summer on Saturday 25th June 2016. Taking place on Abbeville Road, SW4, from 12pm to 6pm, the fete celebrates London’s diversity, community spirit and local enterprise by bringing Londoners and visitors together in raising funds for five local causes in addition to the church:


-


Ace of Clubs (a day centre for homeless and vulnerable members of the community) - 
Lambeth Summer Projects Trust (enabling young people
 from deprived areas of the community to enjoy a summer programme of recreational and educational activities) 
Kid's City (providing before and after-school schemes and holiday play schemes for the children of local families) 
Home Start Lambeth (offering support, friendship and practical help to families with pre-school age children across Lambeth)

Since its creation in 1997, the fete is estimated to have raised £250,000 for local causes.

With more than 80 street stalls, a street BBQ and bar, a dedicated kids zone, a fancy dress parade (this year’s theme - seaside), live music and even a dog beauty pageant, the Abbeville Fete is one of South London’s main social gatherings with activities and fun for all the family.
