Erith’s riverfront is set to play host to a summer of food and events with a new pop-up structure.

The Erith Lighthouse will first set up at Riverside gardens from August 10 to 27, before moving on to Erith Pier on September 7 to 24.

Celebrations kick off with the Erith Lighthouse Garden Party on August 10 from 6.30pm, which will feature local musicians and games.

Over the following weeks the lighthouse will host 17 chefs, including Master Chef runner-up Steve Kielty, each with distinctly different menus inspired by the riverside location.

Linda Bailey, cabinet member for regeneration and growth said: “Erith will be one of the first places to benefit from our ambitious growth plans, with a programme of regeneration aimed at developing the area into a thriving riverside community.

“The Erith Lighthouse is a chance for local people to celebrate the rich heritage of their area. It’s also an opportunity for Erith to show those Londoners who haven’t yet had the chance to visit, just how fantastic a place it is.”

There will also be a variety of tours and walks, with more information at www.greatererith.com.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
