People’s Day- This Saturday 13 July

This Saturday 20,000 people are expected to descend on Mountsfield Park for the annual People’s Day Festival. 2013 sees the return of the festival after a year off last year thanks to the Big Olympic Screen on Blackheath.

While the residents of Stainton Road, George Lane and other surrounding streets endure the noise and parking restrictions- the rest of us get to enjoy the music, food and dance tents- for free.

Web: People’s Day on Facebook

Events will be arranged in special areas around the park: Yellow area Nostalgia acts tend to top the bill at these sort of events. Hyde Park got the Rolling Stones, and SE6 gets ‘Musical Youth’- those Princes of the 1980s.

Green Area: New bands, drama, story telling

Blue area Active area- zumba, dance for life,  bmx freestyle displays

Red area The youth village and craft market

Community and voluntary organisations People’s Day is host to a huge range of organisations

The Save Lewisham Hospital campaign have a  corner position in the Yellow Area Number 81 (Event map grid reference  0,11).  Do take the opportunity go along and say hi!
