Introducing Peckham Festival 2019!

4th September 2019 The Festival

Peckham Festival was launched three years ago to celebrate the creativity and culture of SE15. It exists to promote the artists, makers, creators and community groups of Peckham and to forge community connections through the encouragement of local participation.

Since 2016, Peckham has truly become London’s neighbourhood of reckoning. Its art scene is world-renowned.

Over 3 days, this year’s Peckham Festival focuses on our thriving local artistic talent.

Made in Peckham Open Studios features over 80 artists and creatives, taking you on a journey to discover what is ‘Made in Peckham’.

Open Studios features over 80 artists and creatives, taking you on a journey to discover what is ‘Made in Peckham’. You’ll find artists, makers and creators across SE15 producing ceramics, sculpture, painting, screen printing, photography, fashion, jewellery, textiles, graphics, architecture and homewares. Browse the full listings to meet the makers, many of them in the intimacy of their own studios.

There are free family-friendly activities and community outreach in our Community Hub in Copeland Park..

You can also find a range of free events including Reflecting Peckham II Exhibition, outdoor pedal-powered screening of Bohemian Rhapsody, food traders, a flower installation, performances and talks.

The festival is 100% non-profit and in 2018 became a Community Interest Company (CIC). The scaling back of this year’s festival highlights the need for a sustainable strategy going forward. We are working on a plan to involve large scale stakeholders who can help support us financially, to ensure a long term sustainable and wide-reaching community festival for years to come.

For now, thank you to this year’s sponsors; Copeland Park & Bussey Building, Social, #PeckhamIsOpen and Southwark Council.

But our greatest thanks go to the creatives, businesses and volunteers who make Peckham Festival a unique community effort and without whom this event would not be possible.
