Brockley Max line-up announced

1-9 June 2007

This year’s Brockley Max festival is set to be the biggest ever, with music, film, theatre and poetry events throughout the first week of June, along with art workshops and exhibitions, plus the ever-popular children’s day “Art in the Park” event on 9 June. The festival is a community event, run by local residents on a non-profit basis. Most of the events are free. The programme is so detailed that the festival website is the best place to see the full listings.

Brockley Max kicks off on June 1st with live music next to the station, in front of the mural. Many of Brockley's leading venues will be hosting events, including the Brockley Jack theatre, Moonbow Jakes, Toads Mouth Too, The Wickham Arms and Cafe Neu. The festival also includes "Open Studios", in which many of Brockley's leading artists throw open their doors to the public, to show off their work. Brockley Central feels a particular duty to promote this part of the festival, since it depleted the Open Festival programme by one, by moving in to the house of one of last year's exhibtors.

Moira Tait, founder and organiser says: “The festival is now in its fifth year and has become an established part of the local community. It’s a great opportunity for people to experience the wealth of talent and creativity of this part of south east London.”
