Brockley MAX Arts Festival

This looks set to be a fantastic event in our own South-East London....
The 9th Annual Brockley MAX arts festival starts on Friday, May 28th and runs until Saturday, June 5th.

There are various events going on all over Brockley, Ladywell and Crofton Park. Lots of talented performers and artists, many living locally, who will provide people with hours of free entertainment. The Brockley area has a bit of a reputation for attracting bohemain artistic types and the area itself is stepped in history.

You can look at the rich and diverse programme for the festival here.

A highlight for our family (if we will have recovered being away for half-term week, more about that another time...) is this event:
Hacienda on the Hill
Sat, 5 June, 12:00 – Sun, 6 June midnight!
at Hilly Fields, 172 Adelaide Avenue, London SE4 (map)
Ten days of events has its finale as Brockley Max reaches fever pitch on Hilly Fields. Our final Reach Out- Express Your Arts blends together in a truly scintillating, magical, creative atmosphere full of delights. From midday to midnight, Hilly Fields will be alight with the Hacienda groove which will hit the mark no matter who you are. The vibe gets going at midday with Art in The Park, a magical, mystery marquee where whimsical workshops of creations take shape in the imaginations of children 0 - 11years. Workshops include puppetry, storytelling, drumming, creative dance, Bollywood dance, Capoeria, badges from recycled materials, face painting, create your own character and much more. The Hacienda Stage raises the temperature and gets our pulses racing for the Brockley Max finale with dance, theatre and music. Zumba® a spicy, hot, hip swivelling workout where African, Caribbean and Latin dance moves are combined with aerobics/fitness.....
.....All this, plus food, a bar, a craft market and the grand opening of the new playground at 2pm by the Mayor.
