People’s Day is Saturday!

0

South east London’s much-loved free family festival returns to Mountsfield Park in Catford on Saturday 7 July.

​The 34th People’s Day will feature an amazingly eclectic programme with seven stages of music, dance, comedy and cabaret. Plus there will be great street food and bars, a funfair, artisan craft market, sports arena, sound system and lots of free activities for all ages.

Home-grown headliners

ESKA

This year’s headliner is Mercury Prize nominee ESKA, who was born in Zimbabwe and grew up in Lewisham. She’s a female solo artist who has been compared to Joni Mitchell, but her sound is a unique and complex tapestry of folk, soul and rock ‘n’ roll that must be heard to be believed.

Chainska Brassika

Also on the line-up are local band Chainska Brassika. The mischievous rabble from Lewisham have been causing mischief since school, spreading their contagious horn-driven ska anthems across the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.

Other attractions include:

  • a rock, folk and roots line-up on the bandstand
  • Fusion sports arena and healthy living displays
  • a new stage showcasing the very best up-and-coming local young talent
  • Millwall Football Club have-a-go sessions
  • Disco Bingo with the Positive Ageing Council
  • a celebration of 250 years of circus
  • talks from Goldsmiths, University of London on Windrush and 1977’s Battle of Lewisham.
