Crikey, People's Day is only a week away!

Lewisham People's Day has quietly been creeping up on us. You now only have 8 days to learn your Walking On Sunshine steps and get yourself down to Mountsfield Park in Catford. (Saturday, 10 July 2010, 12 to 8pm)

In a flurry of incomplete sentences, the Lewisham Arts Service describe it thus:

Ska Legend's The Beat and Katrina (formerly of Katrina and the Waves) head up a uniquely eclectic line-up of over 1000 local and international. Join in the Big Dance moves to Walking on Sunshine at the 4pm.
Further information 0208 318 3986. Free. Mountsfield Park.

The Lewisham Council Website is a little more helpful....

Lewisham’s longest running free community festival returns to Mountsfield Park, Catford for its 26th year on Saturday 10 July 2010, 12noon-8pm (last entry 6.30pm).
Ska legends The Beat head up a unique showcase of music, circus, magic, art, sport and spoken word from over a thousand performers on eight themed stages.
Plus a ferris wheel and funfair attractions, a craft market, real ale tavern and fabulous food.

  1. ha,ha, idea of hell, despite probably the best ex-famous band line up in many years...

  2. Deptford KniaiveSaturday, July 03, 2010

    Yeah, why not Dizzie Rascal, Florence & The Machine, Athlete and Beverley Knight (suggest your own Lewisham stars) over 4 nights at Blackheath? £25 a ticket each night (£12 concessions) £35 to all non-Lewisham residents...(I was gonna say Fordham Park, but that's another story)...Let's face it, Lewisham can't pull off an event to save their lives...

  3. If anyone's reading this right now, they should be watching Babylon (1980) on BBC2 instead, and trying to spot all the Deptford locations...(the TV guide says 'young man living in Brixton' but almost every shot is Deptford)...

  4. I wasn't reading then but if anyone want to play ''spot the spot,'' Babylon is available for streaming or downloading from here:
