BPCP is very saddened to learn of the untimely passing of Sandy Ellis.

Sandy was a former Chair of the Cressingham Gardens Estate Residents Association in Tulse Hill, SW2. A wonderfully warm person and great community leader, Sandy helped BPCP deliver creative bicycle and fashion projects for young people from Tulse Hill in 2011 and 2012.

She will be sorely missed.

Sandy’s funeral is at 10.30am on Wednesday 10th September 2014 at New Testament Church of God, Lambert Road, Brixton, London. SW2 5BB

Benjamin Croft Trio cancels performance

Ben Croft TrioWe regret to inform you that today’s jazz performance has been cancelled by Benjamin Croft Trio.

While the weather in the Park was fine from late morning up until 2.30pm, where there was a brief shower followed by sunshine, the group did not want to risk damage to their equipment and they informed BPCP shortly before 1pm today (when they had been due to arrive at the park) that they were cancelling the event.

The next MADD for Brockwell Park event is local group Soul Intent – Motown, Stax and funk classics, 2.30pm Sunday 7th September 2014 at the performance space by Brockwell Hall.
