Elsewhere at Streatham Festival

Elsewhere at Streatham Festival – our top five:

Streatham Festival kicks off on 4th July and we’re super excited to be a part of it. We’ll be performing Alice in Wonderland at the British Home on 4th and 5th July (tickets here), alongside a free Mad Hatter’s Tea Party themed fete in the grounds of the Home. It’s all set to be a terrific weekend and there’s plenty more on offer at Streatham Festival. Here are our top picks:

1. The Streatham Strut – Saturday 11th July

16 venues in the centre of Streatham hosting an exciting evening of live music, there’s bound to be something for everyone and a great atmosphere http://www.streathamfestival.com/node/122

2. Breaking the Code from Streatham Theatre Company – 4 performances

Two of our favourite things here – South London theatre companies (ho ho) and Alan Turing. Check this out to see another view on the story behind recent blockbuster The Imitation Game, taking a more personal view. http://www.streathamtheatre.org.uk/code

3. Shazia Mirza ‘A Work in Progress’ at the Laughing Pod – Wednesday 8th July

There’s loads of comedy at the festival, three different acts at this venue on this evening alone (phew!) but Shazia takes our fancy as it’s always good to see a comic who’s on the rise and rise in a small venue just before they get really popular. There, we called it. Also she says “There will be anger, confusion, some laughter and mostly danger” – how can you resist?

4. The Breakfast Club free outdoor screening – Saturday 4th July

This sounds like a perfect summer’s evening just waiting to happen – fingers crossed it’s dry but pack a cagoule and a blanket and you’ll be just fine whatever the British Summertime wants to throw at you. http://www.freefilmfestivals.org/whats-on/streatham/details/447-the-breakfast-club.html

5. Lucy Spanyol’s Blue Plaques – throughout week one of the festival

We love the playful nature of this, definitely worth checking them out if you’re wandering through Streatham during the festival. http://www.streathamfestival.com/art23LucySpanyol
