The Brockley MAX, May 28th - June 5th 2010

The Brockley MAX is back. The community arts festival will be taking place from May 28th to June 5th, drawing on the wealth of local talent that the area has to offer to create a programme of events - big and small -hosted by many of the area's leading venues.

This year's MAX will feature musicians, painters, poets, designers, dancers and more, staging a range of events across Brockley and Ladywell, kicking-off with a concert at Brockley Station.

Festival organiser Moira Tait says:

“We have some really interesting and exciting events and performers confirmed such as Billy Jenkins, Sarah Gillespie, Montage Theatre, Felix School of Rock as well as an open-air film night at Hilly Fields.

"Once again there will be the ever-popular children’s Art In The Park, and this year a craft market at Hilly Fields that will give local craftspeople and designers the opportunity to showcase their wares. We’ll be adding more events in the coming days so please regularly check the festival website for updates or follow us on Facebook or Twitter.”

Brockley Central will be providing full coverage of this year's MAX and will be organising its own contribution to this year's festival with a free night of live music at the Ladywell Tavern on June 3rd. More about that soon.

The festival is a community event, run by local residents on a non-profit basis. Most of the events are FREE.
