Saturday 25 May is a big day for Brockwell Park.
A celebration is planned to mark the conclusion of The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) restoration and refurbishment of our Park. The HLF will tour the Park, there will be music, and of course, VIPs making speeches.
We will also be celebrating our own VIPs – Volunteers In Parks.
We will be showcasing the contribution volunteers make to the Park. Activities will be going on around the Park between 11am and 4pm. You will be able to see and talk about the volunteering opportunities the Park has to offer.
Some of the groups and activities taking part:
M A D – Music Arts and Drama / Friends of Brockwell Park / Community Greenhouses /
Biodiversity projects / Dig the Park / Sports / Miniature Railway / Bling Ya Bike and more.
11 am HLF Tour the Park
1 pm Brockwell Hall – Celebration & Speeches
The Southwark Concert Band will be performing outside the Hall right after the speeches. There will also be a small exhibition in Brockwell Hall, courtesy of the Friends of Brockwell Park.
It would be great if you could join us

BPCP and Lambeth colleagues have produced some great new leaflets on Brockwell Park’s:

The free screening of ‘Spirited Away’ on the evening of Saturday 18th May will now take place by the Temple building in Brockwell Park (and not the Peformance Space as previously advised). See you there!
A huge thank you to everyone that helped to administer and take part in today’s Five Parks Walk. Over 50 walkers enjoyed the glorious sunshine in Belair Park, Sydenham Woods, Dulwich Park, Ruskin Park and Brockwell Park. Vinnie O’Connell’s talk to those on the guided walk at the New Leaf project was most appreciated!
£280 was raised by the Walk which will support the costs of ‘MAD for Brockwell Park’ – our programme of community music, arts and drama events. We look forward to seeing you again for the 2014 Five Parks Walk. In the meantime, if any of today’s participants would like to form a more regular walking group, please get in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org
We would like to clarify that the private event in Brockwell Park today was organised by Serco for its employees, with the consent of Lambeth Council. It has nothing to do with the Five Parks Walk, Brockwell Park Community Partners or the ‘MAD’ Programme. Thank you.
