We hope to launch a new Festival of Music, the Arts, and Literature based in St John the Baptist Church, Bromley Road, Catford. We work with a wide range of community groups through church and through partnerships with local stakeholders and think we have good access to what people might be excited by. We plan to have a real range of events over an 8 day period in June: A Romanian Cultural evening, two lectures on music and art, a semi-staged music/opera evening, a poetry talk, a String Quartet recital, two poetry competitions and two art competitions for children, a choir recital, a concert by Brighter Horizons (a group that is based here working with people with learning difficulties), a pop-up bar and Jazz evening, Morris Dancers and a Samba Band - something for everyone!
