Southwark’s Fireworks Night 2015 – 5 November

We all know the amazing effects that professional pyrotechnicians - or firework specialists in normal parlance - can achieve. We remember the displays at the opening of the 2012 London Olympics or the New Year as marking special moments. Children (and adults if we are honest) take great joy from the shock and awe that huge displays [...]

Albert McKenzie VC

London is full of statues to long forgotten generals and field-marshals. It's not very often that an ordinary lad from a poor background gets to be memorialized in our streets. And even more unusual is that this particular World War I hero came from Bermondsey and his memorial sculpture has just been made in Rotherhithe! [...]

10 Reasons to spend in SE16 first

Here at I Live in SE16, we are big fans of all things local – our local parks, charities, venues, churches, schools and businesses – and we think it makes sense for local people to spend time and their hard-earned money (or benefits) with independent businesses. What’s so good then about shopping local? Why all [...]

Scouting in SE16

When I met Eddie Langdon at the Scout House on Jamaica Road, the day was spitting rain and we ran inside to get out of the wind. Grim though the exterior of the building on the corner of Southwark Park may look, inside it is a rabbit-warren of rooms, halls and corridors. Eddie keeps the [...]

Rotherhithe and Bermondsey Choral Society

Our local choir has become a local institution yet many who live here really don’t know much about it. Their Musical Director Sue Heath-Downey gave me an hour and a half of her time to find out all about the choir’s development and how they make music for everyone. So how did the choir get [...]

MeetUp 19 March and Big Lunch SE16
