The Telegraph Hill Festival is a 22 year old Festival celebrating life in this part of South London. This year's Festival majors on community, participation and experimentation.
There are free events and taster sessions - everything from art classes to yoga. - all taking place at Telegraph Hill Centre
St Catherine's Church plays host to Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods - a musical extravaganza with a cast of nearly 200. Meanwhile Sonic Imperfections will feature stunning experimentation in sound by modern composers and musicians using live and digital instrumentation. Then there are two classical music events... and more besides.
Hill Station hosts the Bootlegger's Tea Party - cakes and cabaret with cocktails - while the Telegraph at the Earl of Derby hosts an evening of cabaret with Songs we thought we Couldn't Sing described as "two middle aged women and a piano, what could possibly go wrong ... ?" Lady La La and her boys return for an astounding evening of song with La La Piano Bar. Two open mics cater for aficionados of modern song while Punk Karaoke gives you the chance to forget your backache and pogo!
Smashfest at Besson Street Garden throws us into a dramatic disaster scenario - what can we do to save dying bees and ensure that we can feed ourselves? Then there's documentary making, spoken word, a Science Show Off .... All that hard work has made us peckish so we might pop down to The Rosemary for an evening of Hungarian wine and food tasting.
