WINNER of the Herne Hill Society Excellence Award

We were delighted and amazed to win this award at April's ceremony.

2023 Festival Programme

The programme for the Festival is now on our programme page, and you'll find details of many of the groups there. Others will appear over the next few weeks.

We will be showcasing:

- afro beat music, with the Ozimzim Band
- blues with Jimmy Regal and the Royals
- the return of the great jazz groups Doolaly Tap, Chebeto Jazz, and the Tim Richards Trio
- Classical music with the Southwark Sinfonietta and Haruko Seki (piano)

- along with our extensive programme of varied concerts and events involving the local community.

The 2022 Festival - record audiences

We had a record audience in 2022. 1,698 audience members attended, up more than 300 from 2021. The average number of people was also up sharply and double from when we started 12 years ago.

In 2021 it looked as though we had attracted more younger people, whilst older people were reluctant to come to concerts in crowded rooms. In 2022 we kept our new larger young audience and our older audience returned.

Our web publicity reached more people than ever before, and in October our web site had the largest number of visits it has ever received. Most people learn about Festival events by word-of-mouth or from the programmes we deliver door-to-door. A third of our audience comes from Herne Hill, with another third from neighbouring areas and the rest from across London.
