Warwick Wingding 2010

Some of you will have enjoyed the Warwick Wingding last year. Well it’s back by popular demand, in Peckham’s Warwick Gardens on Satruday 25 September.

Have a look at the at our Facebook group for updates on what’s on offfer — http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=132097503474652&ref=search

The format’s similar to last year, but bigger and we hope better. Our lineup this year features some very diverse local talent, and hopefully there will be something for everyone including folk, indie, soul, rap, americana, electro, experimental, and much much more. And we have a very SPECIAL GUEST too — no less than Chas Hodges of Chas and Dave fame. I’ll put the full line up up before the event.

As well as the music stage, we will also have a talent corner in the Ivy House beer tent where anyone can get up and perform. If you’re interested in doing something for this then please do get in touch beforehand and we’ll add you on the list.

We’ve got great food stalls from the likes of local greats Meatwagon and Ganapati, plus much much more…

There will be a whole host of activities again this year including yoga, hula hooping, and a massive children’s area with facepainting, theatre, and art. London Borough of Southwark willing, we’ll have a bouncy castle in there too.

So come on down, things kick off at midday and go on all day until 7.30pm. We’ll be continuing the fun with the aftershow party at The Ivy House Pub in Nunhead– our official sponsors– where there will be cabaret and comedy provided by ‘Pull the Other One’.

If anyone wants to help on the day, or perform in the talent tent or just get involved e‐mail us at warwickgarden@​googlemail.​com.

Peter has kindly lent me his blog to plug a local music and arts festival.

On Saturday 26 September, from 1pm to 7.30pm,Warwick Gardens SE15 will host the first‐ever Warwick Wingding.

The Wingding will see a line‐up of the most exciting new bands on the local scene from Peckham, New Cross, Camberwell and Nunhead, including:

The Pepys, The Saudis, Kids Loves Lies, Lime Headed Dog and Butch & Femme.  The Wingding will also welcome singer‐songwriters Pierre La Rouge, The Boycott Coca Cola Experience, , as well a 30 piece swing band The Starter Big Band.

Peckham’s own DJ Mickey Smith will MC proceedings.

Expect too to experience yoga classes, hands‐on theatre, hula‐hooping, dressing‐up, face‐painting plus stalls from local artists and creative types.

Food and drink there will be plenty: Thai Pod, Chicken Wingding Barbecue plus Spanish and Italian along with wine and cider from Green & Blue and a beer tent.

And if that isn’t enough, South East London’s best municipal bouncy castle will also be present, courtesy of LB Southwark.
