Frost Fair is a homage to the area’s unique history, celebrating the characters and fascinating stories from past winters in the Southwark borough. There’s lots more happening across the area, find out more here.
This winter, Bankside is celebrating one of the most extraordinary events in London’s history – the Frost Fair. From circa 1605 to 1814, the surface of the River Thames froze over 24 times, bringing all trade on the water to a standstill.

Inspired by the area’s rich heritage and lively characters, Bankside has reinvented the Frost Fair for the 21st century. Immerse yourself in innovative augmented reality installations, follow our street art trails, feast on special Frost Fair themed food and drink and enjoy inspired workshops from lino-printing to wreathmaking.

Boiler & Co
Boiler & Company, is an independent specialist cocktail and gastro bar which is conveniently located seconds from the Thames and the Tate Modern. They aim to showcase the versatility of whisky in the modern-cocktail scene…It is a hotspot you don’t want to miss! They are offering a Faux Banana Old Fashioned featuring Maker’s Mark Kentucky Straight Bourbon. Only £7 with a LCW wristband. It’s an amazing drink. Boiler & Co owner, Adam, infuses the whisky himself using banana skin and finely slices the banana, dehydrates it to create the stunning garnish. We previewed this drink at Cocktails in the City earlier this summer and it sold out every day.

It includes Mermaid Zest Gin, Italicus, Grapefruit, Lime, Sugar, topped with lemonade & crushed ice, garnished with mint leaves and grapefruit slice
