Our October Agenda is a corker! As autumn closes in, there are tonnes of events to keep us entertained throughout this month. Here are just some of the best events happening this month.
Bermondsey Square is soon to become the hottest lunch spot in SE1. Alongside the fabulous restaurants and cafes already in Bermondsey Square, StreetDots will add a daily changing choice of three fantastic street food stalls.
The three pitches or ‘dots’ in Bermondsey Square are landing sites for street food traders, each hosting a different vendor each day. The result is an ever-changing showcase of London’s latest and best on your doorstep. No need to trek across London in search of that special brioche burger that got the rave reviews in the press – StreetDots is bringing it to you.

We all remember the success of Ember Yard’s Croquetas Challenge earlier this month. To celebrate bubbledogs’ 4th birthday, they have invited some of London’s finest chefs to compete for the title of ‘top dog’ at their Hot Dog Challenge. A panel of discerning judges will put their creations to the test in a blind tasting. The winning hot dog will make a month-long guest appearance on the menu.
Guests are invited to sip on Champagne and will get the chance to taste each entry for the Hot Dog Challenge in canapé form, while the bubbledogs signature soundtrack of old school Hip-Hop pops in the background. It’s a night to eat good, do good, with £5 of each ticket sold donated to James’ fundraising efforts for Action Against Hunger.
Let the battle commence.
