Brockley Max is calling all budding artists and performers!
Would you like to put on an event at this year’s Brockley Max Festival? We have some great events already lined up for this year, but we have room for more!
From May 28 to June 5, Brockley Max 2021 will be a celebration of our diverse musical talents with an online Opening Night, art trails, exhibitions, creative challenges, walking tours, poetry readings, short stories, film, theatre, music and comedy nights.
And you could be part of it!
Here are a few ideas to get you thinking before the festival deadline on April 8.
• Have you got a band and want to perform in your front garden, on Zoom, outside a venue?
• How about a comedy show, theatrical performance or talk on Facebook, Tiktok?
• Fancy performing in a beautiful community garden or your own back Garden?
• Give your street a challenge to create communal art.
We are looking for event ideas which are outdoors, self-guided, or indoors where numbers can be monitored.
Full details are on www.brockleymax.co.uk, here you can find our event forms and venue directory.
The deadline is April 8 so be quick! And if you need some help with finding a venue, email Jeff our events manager at email@example.com

20th Brockley Max festival plans a walk down memory lane – and needs your support
2021 is a special year for Brockley Max – this year sees our 20th festival, writes Moira Tait, festival director.
Despite challenging circumstances, we are going to deliver a special edition this year by getting creative to revitalise and celebrate all the local arts scene has to offer.
This year’s festival will embrace digital more than ever before. We will be developing a series of innovative events from curated self-guided audio-visual tours to virtual exhibitions, combining these with Covid-safe physical get-togethers as much as we are able to.
One of the festival highlights will be ‘Memories of Brockley Max’ a curated, self-guided audio-visual tour of festival locations in Brockley, Crofton Park and Ladywell via a phone app which will let participants discover music, interviews and images of past events and venues in a Covid-safe way.
A downloadable guide will be available as well as a physical exhibition where people can add their memories of the festival.
Who remembers the Brockley Max radio station at the Toad’s Mouth Too, or when Known painted the murals on Coulgate Street?
Or what about the fantastic music events at Moonbow Jakes or the comedy nights at the Brockley Jack Theatre?
However, we can’t do this alone. We need your support to help us hit our fundraising target.
If everyone in Brockley donated just 59p we would smash our goal – for the cost of a pint of milk you will have helped create Memories of Brockley Max to celebrate 20 years of art in our community.
