We love to hear about community initiatives so when details of Ovalhouse’s #BrixtonCity Festival dropped into our inbox we just had to share the news with you.
Ovalhouse, a lively theatre and arts centre on the Kennington Oval, presents Brixton City Festival from 11th – 14th August, a celebration of Brixton with new artist commissions showcasing exciting performers. This is Brixton at its finest, showcasing artists who represent real Brixton; raw vibrant Brixton. Over the four-day festival, audiences will enjoy unique theatrical experiences in everyday locations transformed into live performances to stumble across.
Here’s the line up:
Thursday 11th August 3pm & 6pm, Brixton Village; in circus-sitcom PUB, the landlord and landlady of a failing old fashioned boozer have a big decision to make: go hipster or go hungry – I know what we’d do… Watch out for the acrobats and flying balls. By Molly Orange Street Theatre @MollyOrangeST
Friday 12th August 9pm, Windrush Square; see the iconic Lara Lee perform live music theatre in front of the iconic Bovril advert wall. I saw Lara Lee perform at last year’s Brixton TedX, she is brilliant. Say hi on Twitter @LaraLeeOfficial and why not check out her website here.
Sunday 14 Aug 5:30pm, Windrush Square: Round & Round by Marawa’s Majorettes, World Record Holders.
This looks amazing! Dancehall meets reggae, a dazzling hula hoop display with LED hoops and fast paced moves on roller skates, followed by a flash mob from Brixton village to Windrush Square. Head to Windrush and have a go at hula-hooping yourself. By Marawa’s Majorettes @ @
