News from Sydenham Arts Festival
Sydenham Arts Festival 2012’s fantastic programme is now finalised and details will be announced very soon. Highlights include Arts in the Park/Family Fun Day on Sunday 1 July, an open-air production of The Jungle Book (3-8 July), a ‘Battle of the Bards’ playwriting competition and Word Explosion, and a family-friendly literary festival headlined by ‘Liverpool poet’ Roger McGough.
On the weekends of 7-8 and 14-15 July Sydenham’s artists will once again open their homes and studios to the public in the ever popular Visual Arts Trail – more details coming soon!
SAF needs volunteers to help out in a variety of roles, including box office, leafleting, front of house, stewarding at events, technical crew and drivers. Anyone who’s interested is invited to an initial volunteers ‘meet & greet’ on Saturday 19 May from 11am until 1pm at the Golden Lion pub, 116 Sydenham Road, SE26 5JX. This will be a great opportunity to meet the Festival’s organising team, have a sneak preview of the Festival’s exciting programme, and let us know which events you’re interested in helping with. If you cannot make this meeting, our alternative date is Monday 21 May, 7.30-9pm at The Here For Good Centre, 17 Sydenham Rd, SE26 5EX.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know whether you will be able to attend either of these meetings. If you know anyone who you think might be interested in helping with SAF 2012, please do let them know about the meetings – everyone is welcome.
