We are hosting a meeting for artists, arts organisations, community groups, schools and colleges and local venues to present the wide range of opportunities at Streatham Festival 2014. We’ll be having refreshments, and there will be staff on hand to discuss your ideas and answer your questions.
Streatham Festival Association is recruiting a new chair to take us into 2014. We are very sorry to be saying goodbye to Helen Smith, who has championed the festival very effectively for the last two years. Do you have time and skills that could help us take the festival further?
We are happy to announce that the winner of the evaluation form prize draw is Cherry Dodgson of East Yorkshire. Cherry and her husband were visiting their daughter who is a Streatham resident and kindly filled in an evaluation form at Streatham UnCommon. Congratulations to Cherry for a well spent 5 minutes and her £50 cash prize! We’d like to thank everyone who filled in an evaluation form and the Lambeth College students who have spent the last 3 months collating all the data you gave us.
A special live anniversary performance of a Sherlock Holmes story is performed in an historic radio theatre in front of a live audience. However in this stressful environment, the tensions and conflicts between the members of the radio cast and production team which have built up during the long running series come to a head. The off-mic drama threatens to interfere with the live broadcast, but whatever happens, once on the air, the show must go on…
Focusing on housing, we will be holding free workshops across South London and this is your chance to get involved. Come along and have your say, find out how you can be involved in the production and meet like-minded Londoners.
After your excellent efforts to name our main event ‘Streatham UnCommon’, we are relying on the many creative minds across the borough to help us develop the theme so please do let us know your ideas before 1 October – we look forward to hearing from you.
The festival team will be in ‘recess’ throughout August and September, and will reconvene in October to begin planning for 2014. The first event partner meeting for people wanting to present work in the festival will take place in December.
Thanks to everyone who came and participated in this year’s festival – what a roaring success! Great events, great weather and fabulous audiences made it a year to remember.
