The Stockwell Festival is returning this summer having taken a sabbatical in 2016.

The free community event in Larkhall Park will take place on Saturday 1 July. Funding issues meant that the celebration of the local community had to be put on hold last summer.

The Stockwell Festival is organised by the Stockwell Partnership and the Friends of Larkhall Park. Funding has come from the BIG Lottery Celebrate Fund and the Lambeth Forum Network.

The organisers state:

“We want the local community to get involved – it’s YOUR festival! Please get in touch if you would like to volunteer, perform, share information, have a stall or suggest something for the festival.”

Activities include music, dance, free workshops, activities and sport, games, food and crafts.

The Lambeth Early Action Partnership will be supporting the early years area of the festival, giving support from ‘conception to reception…’

The Stockwell Festival in previous years has been a fantastic, chilled community event. Larkhall Park is one of the jewels in the borough. It is a beautiful park that is perfect for this community event.

If you would like to become involved then contact Jess at stockwellfestival@gmail.com, or 07810 407724.

You can follow updates via Facebook or Twitter.

Plus don’t forget the festival BIGGIE: the Lambeth Country Show, taking place in Brockwell Park on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 July.
