A great day to visit the gallery – the Andy Warhol exhibition has just opened with lots of kid friendly Pop Art and it’s party time!
A parade with penny farthings and fancy dress, Punch & Judy, rides, bands and a huge balloon finale in the midst of a giant garden sculpture installation by Philip Haas.
11:30: from Herne Hill Velodrome to Dulwich Picture Gallery by the Veteran-Cycle Club with penny farthings and other vintage bicycles, and children in fancy dress on their bikes
