Join the Second Annual Nunhead Beats the Bounds on Saturday, 5th July 2014.

Last year, the ancient tradition of Beating the Bounds was reborn in Nunhead. Nunheaders came together to celebrate and mark the boundary of our village.

This year our parade will be even bigger and better. Starting 2pm at Nunhead Green. March from Nunhead Green to Queens Road, up to Ivydale Road to One Tree Hill and down Peckham Rye back to Nunhead Green.

Nunheaders young and old will pound the roads, trees and buildings with sticks. We will sing of Angels, William Blake, Queen Elizabeth, Dr. Harold Moody and the other icons of Nunhead. We will rejoice in our Nunhead!

Ending at 4pm back on Nunhead Green with music, refreshments and a free glass of Nunhead Whacker, an ale specifically brewed for this event.

Nunhead Beats the Bounds will define the shape of Nunhead for future generations, again.

The procession will be headed by Lewis Schaffer, host of Nunhead American Radio with Lewis Schaffer, and The Relatives, from The Relatively Good Radio Show, with representatives from community and religious organisations from the constituent areas of Nunhead: Nunhead Village, Olde Nunhead, Nunhead Rye and Nunhead Heights.

It will take approximately 2 hours to do the 4.5 miles, culminating in an ‘Event of Nunhead Unity’ with music, comedy and picnics on Nunhead Green. Nunhead Beats the Bounds will be inclusive, interfaith, multicultural yet very, very British. All brought to you by the Americans of Nunhead.

Please join us for Nunhead Beats the Bounds – A Community Walking Event.

With funding from Southwark Council’s Sustainable Transport & Road Safety Fund.

And additional support from The Salvation Army of Nunhead, Burger Bear and The Old Nun’s Head.
