The Telegraph Hill Festival 2014

The THF team writes:

Now in its 20th year, The Telegraph Hill Festival has been an integral part of the diverse arts, music and performing scene in New Cross.

From 21st March to 6th April 2014 Telegraph Hill Festival will present stunning and varied work encompassing fine art, installation, performance, food related activities, pop-up diners and more.

Artists exhibiting their work through Open Studios include Durgesh Srivastava, the noted abstract expressionist and installation artist (still working in her 80s), Mira Jurcova's web based Gallery of Broken Promises, Andrew Clarke's collages inspired by urban life, Gill Roth’s figurative drawings plus a huge range of affordable ceramics, photography and craft items.

Performance has always played its part in Telegraph Hill Festival. This year Annie Get Your Gun will play at St Catherine's Church and feature a cast of more than 150 people ranging in age from 5 to 80. Telegraph Hill Festival's legendary Comedy Nights have hosted Jenny Eclair, Arthur Smith, Lucy Porter and Stephen Frost, compered by the ever lovely Phil Nice. This year’s Comedy Night promises much.

There will also be a 'beaming and bouncing' laser light show at the top of Telegraph Hill, using the roof spaces of Telegraph Hill Centre. Come and see and all will be revealed…

With around 60 other events including a Tea Dance, a reggae sound system, community cooking workshops, retro gaming, a dog show and numerous free family friendly events there will be something for everyone.

Full details are available from the Telegraph Hill Festival programme.
