The site of Crossbones Garden was a graveyard in the medieval ages which was used for the poorer population of Bankside that could not pay for an honorable burial.

This unique site has been transformed from the last resting place of those excluded from society to a place of inclusion representing the unity of Londoners. We are delighted to be part of the process of creating a new green space where all are welcomed.

Come and enjoy a glass of wine, delectable food from The Boot & Flogger and a variety of entertainment at the Grow Crossbones fundraising event. The event is open to Bankside businesses and local people.

RSVP is essential, please let us know if you and your colleagues are able to attend by emailing info [at] (subject: Grow%20Crossbones%20Events%20Academy%20Event, body: I%20would%20like%20to%20RSVP%20for%20this%20event%20on%2026%20August.)
