THE BLU DEAL CARD  | SHOP, SAVE AND SUPPORT 
Blue Deal Card
Let us introduce The Blue Deal Card, the new way to shop, save and support your local shops and businesses across The Blue Bermondsey area. 

We officially launched it during the Bermondsey Summer Fete at The Biscuit Factory. This soft launch is to distribute the cards to anyone interested in having one. You can get yours and more for every member of the family from the information stall at The Blue Market on Saturdays.

We also plan to host other events as we get more businesses signing up to the scheme. Remember, the card is free and it offers a 5% discount at participating venues in The Blue.

Bermondsey Folk Club
Bermondsey Folk Club Singarounds are held on the last Sunday of the month at Shortwave Cafe, Clements Road, Bermondsey, SE16.

If you want to perform, come from 6.30pm to put your name on the list. Singing & playing will start at 7pm all comers welcome. Any instrument just so long as it is not plugged in. Entry for artists is FREE
