I speak for myself here when I say a weekend to remember would be one filled with good food, inspiring company, whilst enjoying a line up of great bands….. Who’s with me?

Well, these memories are upon us, so dust off the diary and block out the afternoon of 1st and 8th September as the Herne Hill Music Festival kick off their celebrations…

To commence the return of the Herne Hill Festival, October 11th – 19th 2013, two bandstand events will be held at the Herne Hill Sunday Market.

We’re especially excited to bring you this news as one of the Love Herne Hill team is performing!

The first of two events, Saturday 1st September, at a bandstand near you (Herne Hill of course), you can enjoy the sounds of the Crystal Palace Brass Band, the Andrea Trillo Trio, and Hot Motel. So bring the family down, grab a bite to eat, source your weekly supplies from the independent suppliers @hernehillmkt and enjoy the music.

Line up: Sunday 1st September 2013 – 11:00am – 3:00pm
