Published: 17/09/2018 By PennyNestled in the south-west of London, in the Borough of Wandsworth, lies my favorite town known as Putney. Once a small riverside village, Putney has a rich history and has been my home from 2001 as well as the home of many famous Brits including ex Deputy Prime Minister NIck Clegg, photographer Norman Parkinson and Henry VIII’s chief minister, Thomas Cromwell. The Putney of today is much different than the Putney we read about in history books. Today, Putney is a bustling neighborhood where everyone from single professionals and students, to families and more call home. Being one of the UK’s fastest growing neighborhoods, Putney has a lot to offer those who live there and those who visit for the wide array of festivals and other events the area is famous for. And now that the summer festival season is coming to a close, Putney residents have September’s calendar to look forward to.
Here is a look at what’s on in and around Putney this coming September:
