A free event on Midsummer's Eve, 'The Big Event' coincided with the launch of the annual Camberwell Arts Festival, and marked the official re-opening of Myatt's Fields Park after its extensive £3m renovation.
Designed by Fanny Wilkinson - one of Britain's first female professional landscape gardeners and a strong supporter of women's suffrage - the park dates back to Victorian times, being opened in 1889.
