The Big Top is home to Mat Ricardo’s Variety Show, fresh from the West End. Look out for headline act Musical Youth, plus the unforgettable Ida Barr with her unique bingo session. And, in the Informal Performance Space, don’t miss the Lewisham NHS Choir – as featured on the BBC’s Sing While You Work.
Don’t miss any of the great line-up on the Lewisham Hub stage, while the young and young at heart will enjoy our Youth Village. And if you fancy some retail therapy, browse round the Craft Market before you grab something to eat or drink.
Down by the Carswell Road entrance is the high-energy Dance for Life stage. Challenge your mates to a table-top football tournament, enjoy a Zumba class and see the crazy BMX stunt riders.
Arrive at the George Lane entrance for a wildly eclectic musical mix on the Bandstand stage. See Teatro Vivo’s version of The Tempest in the Rose Garden or drop into the beautiful Indian Canopy to share stories of People’s Day gone by or learn how to make a patchwork quilt. Later listen to some of Lewisham’s most exciting bands, everything from post punk lo fi to 1980’s inspired hair metal.
