Cultural events, Street performs and the annual Christmas market all make the Southbank a destination for tourists and locals throughout the year and provide employment oppertunities. The Oval cricket ground is located in Kennington and is home to the Surrey County Cricket team as well as international matches. These events draw huge crowds and offer employment for security staff, chefs and waiting staff.
