Brockley Max Festival 2016
Brockley Max is a nine-day community arts festival celebrating local talent. It takes place in lots of different venues across Brockley, Ladywell, Crofton Park and Honor Oak and is a non-profit festival that everyone can attend and be part of.
Brockley Max 2016 will be held from Friday 27 May to Saturday 4 June.
Art In The Park
Saturday 4 June is our Art In The Park family day, based in Hilly Fields, in the middle of Brockley. From midday until 6pm the area close to the Hilly Fields stone circle is given over to children’s creative workshops and a live stage with dance and musical performances. You’ll also find a craft market, food stalls and a bar.
Segilola Salami will be taking part in this year’s Art In The Park. Come to the storytelling tent at 2:00pm where she’ll be reading some passages from her latest book Yetunde: An Ode to My Mother. Afterwards you can purchase copies and get them signed or simply have a chat with Segilola about her books.
