Organisers are already looking for volunteers to help with staging the festival, people who want to put on an event, sponsors, and advertisers.

Martin’s review will be held on Thursday April 4 at the Chandos, 56 Brockley Rise, from 7.00-9.00pm.
All the proceeds from ticket sales will go towards funding this year’s festival so too will 10 per cent of food and drink sales at the Chandos.
The community arts festival celebrating local talent will kick off with an afternoon and evening of live music, singing and dance at the Opening Night down by Brockley station from 4pm to 10.30pm on May 31.
It will close on June 8 with the Art In The Park family day, a heady mixture of children’s creative workshops, a live stage with dance and musical performances, a craft market, food stalls and bars.
