Saved by the community and sponsored by Brockley’s Rock, the festival once again kicks off with our Opening Night party in the afternoon with cool tunes, and segues into an evening of music and dancing on the street. From 4.30pm, Brockley will be swinging as local bands and performers magic up rock, folk, funk and everything in between! Hosted by our fantastic MC Dre and sound provided byBrockley Studios!!
The Brockley Max radio station is back this year, live from the Fox & Firkin garden. For three days, tune in at 1harmonyradio.com for music, interviews, DJs and all things Brockley Max. And you can pop down to say hello, chat about your festival event, play an instrument or perform some poetry. If you’d like to take part contact @BrockleyMax or tweet for a shout out.
Last year, our community suggested fourteen amazing women who have lived or worked in Lewisham and who have changed our society. Now, four of those women – Rosamund Adoo-Kissi-Debra, Mavis Best and Kristina & Sadé Alleyne are being painted during the festival. Pop down and watch artists Roxanne Williams, Jelly and Amanda Williams create a lasting legacy as part of the Untold Stories project, funded by the Mayor of London.

We’ll be showcasing jewellery, ceramics, clothing, books, homewares, artwork, accessories and much more. Alongside the craft fair, are children’s art workshops a face painter, and much more!
