Feature in Peckham Festival’s Community Hub – 15-17 September 2023

Peckham Festival is an annual celebration of Peckham taking place in multiple venues across SE15, and they are providing space for community groups and local charities to promote their services.

Peckham Festival is an annual celebration of Peckham taking place in multiple venues across SE15, and they are providing space for community groups and local charities to promote their services.

In previous years the festival has hosted these stalls in one space either in Copeland Park or at a partner site. Groups are encouraged to consider the following activities as part of their applications alongside giving out information on their group and regular activities offered:

  • Drop in or bookable taster workshops, making or participatory activities
  • Drop in tasters of your services; eg repairs, consultations, advisory signposting etc.
  • Swaps, donations or giveaways that reflect your services; eg for foodbank, toys, seeds etc
  • Timed talks, screenings, exhibitions or mini performances that showcase the talents of your members, or allow for discussion of issues that are important to the local community.
  • As much as possible these activities should be free for participants or donation based.

As this is an event to celebrate the talents of the people of Peckham, priority will be given to local organisations living, working or originating from across SE15 and then to the neighbouring postcodes of SE1, SE4, SE5, SE14, SE16, SE22 and SE23 and finally to other neighbouring postcodes.

If you are a small business wishing to sell your products to local people with a stall, there is a separate application process on their website.

The festival takes place Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th September 11:00 – 17:00 – they are looking for some groups to exhibit on both days, especially in Copeland Gallery, but single day applications will also be considered and these successful applications are more likely to be housed in Unit 8.

How to take part

They are asking for an application to express your interest via the online form, initially due in by 12 noon Friday 30th June.

For more information please see the full briefing pack, or visit their website for full details.
