The annual Ritherdon Road street party is set brightening up Balham later this month come rain or shine.

It follows on the success of last year's family event, organised by the Ritherdon Road Trader's Association.

Expect to see a parade of business and shops in what organisers hope will be the biggest street party Balham.

In addition to a range of stalls and a variety of entertainments there will be a secret garden set up on the parade.

Special tasters and competitions are also on offer with Dan Thorolds showcasing new wines to sample.

The French Cafe and Locale have terraces where you can sit back with a drink and bite to eat and watch the event.

Budding photographers are being encouraged to submit their best photos of the day to the Robbies Studio stall.

Slaters Newsagents will be running face painting for little ones to get into the festival atmosphere.
