Fairtrade Festival Fun

We’ve all seen Fairtrade bananas, coffee…even soft drinks.

Now there’s a festival to promote all of the Fairtrade good available – and it includes music, films, football-themed goods – and of course food!

Over the weekend you’ll get the chance to try your hand at chocolate tasting, wine tasting as well as watch film screenings, all for free.

It’s all happening at Potter’s Field, on the South Bank next to Tower Bridge, and finishes on Sunday.

Nearest Tube: Tower Hill/London Bridge
