With temperatures soaring, the Northcote Road Summer Fête served up another fantastic community event on Sunday 15th with local residents and visitors out in force.
Thank you again to sponsors Douglas & Gordon, Killik & Co, Flight Centre UK, Mamas & Papas UK, Baby Room Nurseries, Portico Property and Hamptons International for making this year’s Northcote Road Summer Fete another great day out for all the family.
And thanks to all the people who came along and made it so memorable!

The hugely popular Northcote Road Summer Fête is hitting Battersea’s famous shopping street once again on Sunday 15th July, serve up live coverage of the Wimbledon Men’s Tennis Final, plus fun for all the family with 170 market stalls, street food, live music and children’s activities.
As advertised, and as per tradition, we will be showing the Wimbledon Men's singles on the big screen at the Summer Fete. Due to the potential overlap of the two finals and timing of the Fete we will NOT be showing the World Cup final.
PLEASE NOTE: Even if the tennis does finish (very!) early, the football will not be shown due to the potential for huge crowds on Northcote Road. The Summer Fête is primarily a community event and the safety of all, especially little ones, is paramount.
As in the past, we strongly recommend that if you do come to the fete you ensure that your children have wristbands with your contact numbers written on them.
The road will be closed to traffic for the day to allow local residents and visitors to pack the street from 11am – 6pm and enjoy the many fantastic attractions on offer. There will be an outdoor big screen showing all the action from the Wimbledon Men’s Singles Tennis Final, as well as a superb main stage supported by Killik & Co, featuring song and dance performances from local clubs and groups plus wonderfully talented local singer-songwriters filling the air with fantastic tunes to keep the fun and friendly mood going. There will be over 170 stalls lining the street selling an amazing range of clothing, jewellery, toys, homewares, and accessories. A dedicated food court featuring street food from Brazil, Colombia, Caribbean, Ethiopian, India, Mexico...... plus many local restaurants and bars along the street going alfresco. And the Kid’s Zone sponsored by Douglas & Gordon will include a carousel ride, Zoola animals, assault course, face painter, interactive games and much much more.
What makes the Summer Fête even more special is the commitment from local businesses to help make the event happen and showcase their superb offer. The street is a haven of diversity, with specialist shops and boutiques, complemented by market stalls. Shoppers can find everything they need, from fishmongers and butchers to aromatherapy shops and bakers.
The event is led by Northcote Business Network, chaired by Jonathan Dyson, Regional Director at Countrywide Plc. It is supported by the Clapham Junction Town Centre Partnership, Wandsworth Council and sponsored by Douglas & Gordon, Killik & Co, Flight Centre, Mamas & Papas. Linden Tree Nursery Schools, NappyValleyNet, Hamptons and Portico.
This year we would also like to thank the local residents and businesses who responded to the call for funding via the crowd funder page and charity pots, kindly displayed in some local business, which raised just shy of £4,000. Massive thanks to all of you.
All Star Tennis the 2018 event charity will be fund raising at the event. For more information on the charity please visit http://www.allstartennis.co.uk/
There is no better place to be, so put the date in your diaries and come along to the Northcote Road Summer Fête on Sunday 15th July 2018, 11am-6pm. For more information, follow us on Facebook and Twitter @NorthcoteSw11
Please Note: The Summer Fete finishes at 6pm and the big screen coverage, stage music etc will all end at this time. The event attracts a large crowd and we therefore ask you to leave your pets at home unless you require an assistance dogs The lost children point will be at Hamptons. Tip to minimise the time it takes to reunite parent and child, put a wrist band with a parents mobile number on each child in advance of attending.
