Welcome to SE21 Dulwich Festival - 11th - 20th May This month Welcome to the May issue of SE21.

After a rather wet April, I am hoping for better weather in May as it is time for the Dulwich Festival. There are so many brilliant events taking place during the 10-day festival, we just don’t have enough room to tell you about them all. However, Alpha Hopkins, Director of the Festival has given us her top tips for on page 32.

Back for a seventh year is the Festival Fair on Goose Green. It is going to be even bigger this year, with two bars and more food stalls. There will still be a chance to shop and there are plenty of activities for children - many of them are free!

Remember to visit the website, where many tickets to events are available to purchase online. There are plenty of free events too.

I hope you will enjoy reading through the magazine to work out what you want to do this May. See you next month.

Dulwich Festival - Page 32

If the blossom is out then the Dulwich Festival must be just around the corner! Take some time out with the following comforting thought, from 11th to 20th May there will be a whole host of wonderful events designed just for your delight! Check the programme, text a friend and book your tickets now at

Art is once again centre stage as over 200 artists will be exhibiting their work throughout the area as part of Artist’s Open House. Sport will this year make a splash with many local clubs and facilities opening their doors for free events; why not come and try your hand at something new! If comedy is your thing then watch out for the remarkably talented Richard Herring (19 May) as he performs in Dulwich for the first time. Music events abound throughout

the week with delights ranging from the seductive sounds of Sarah Moule (18 May) to burning jazz fusion with Adam Glasser and guests including alto sax star Jason Yarde (16 May).

The Festival will kick-off with a wonderful array of choirs: Note-Orious will delight you with their pop/ indie/musicals mix, Diversity will inspire you with beautiful, classical pieces and awesome a cappella will come from In The Smoke (11 May). Come and join the singing yourself the following day with the chance to take part in what promises to be an inspirational performance of Haydn’s Nelson Mass (12 May)

The week will include two fantastic coups for the Festival. First an evening of some of the finest acoustic folk music London has to offer. Beautiful haunting music not to be missed from The Fancy Dress Party, Keston Cobblers’ Club and Gerard and

the Watchmen (12 May). The Festival is also delighted to welcome Melanie Pappenheim and Rebecca Askew in an entertainingly original piece of voice theatre, FLAM, by awarding winning composer, Orlando Gough (16 May). They gossip, compete, sympathise, and conduct a hilarious singing lesson in unison and counterpoint. “Witty, touching... it’s a little gem” (Sunday Telegraph).

An intriguing array of writers will be making their way to Dulwich for the Festival including former MP Chris Mullin who will discuss the latest part of his autobiography A Walk-On Part which examines his view of government during the Blair years (11 May). Norman Lebrecht will bring his own brand of incisive thought as he considers exactly what exchange took place when Mahler met Freud in Great Conversations of the 20th Century (14 May).

Amid a week of walks, talks, poetry and music, the Festival will once again party in style with the fantastic Festival Fair on Goose Green (13 May) and the Dulwich Park Fair and Village Pram Race (20 May).
