Brockley MAX: new leader needed

Moira Tait, the founder and primary organiser of the Brockley MAX arts festival, has announced that she is stepping down from her role and is actively seeking a successor.

In its six year life, the MAX has become a showcase for Brockley creative talent and a major part of the Brockley summer season.

In an email to contacts involved with the organisation of the festival, Tait said:

"I’d like to thank everyone who has taken part over the years as it would not have been possible without you. Because it feels as if Brockley Max is finally becoming established, it either needs more formal organisation or new blood to take it to a new stage."

We hope that someone else comes forward and that the MAX continues to grow.

Moira deserves a huge thank you for organising the festival for all these years and its a real shame that she is handing over the reins. I hope this doesnt mean the end of Brockley Max.

Agreed. Last years max was the biggest yet. the final night on Hilly Fields was a triumph and a real credit to the organisers of the max and the good people of brockley.

I was in Brighton at the weekend at a pub that had a 'we got five stars' sticker in the window. How hard can it be?

Back on topic (better late than never)...

Huge thank you to Moira for helping to put Brockley on the map, and give us an excuse to invite all our smug north London mates over to show them how great the place is.

Music is a major passion of mine - I've even put on a few club nights in my time - but my job and relationship would never allow for me to take on such a task as the MAX!

I would, however, do my bit to help. I think this is a job for a fairly large and diverse committee. Anyone else on the blog up for it? There are probably a few music promoters in Brockley, and certainly a few in New Cross. Get in touch here.

Back off topic... Andy I have spoken to both parties and there is no issue between them. In fact, they know eachother and get on rather well, which is very encouraging for the future of the area. They all seem to be taking a rather enlightened view that the cluster of businesses around the station will benefit one another by encouraging more people to think about shopping locally there.

The deli is making progress and will be open soon enough.

It's one thing speculating about Caffe Nero, it's another to write things that potentially could damage people's relationships with their neighbours. It's important to remember that as well as being businesses, they are also people, who could be upset by gossip.

As I've said before, I am always happy to investigate stories on people's behalf, if you want to email me with details.
