WARWICK WINGDING
It’s more than just a local music festival!
When: SATURDAY 26 SEPTEMBER, 1:30pm – 7.30pm
Where: Warwick Gardens, Lyndhurst Grove, Peckham, SE15
On Saturday 26 September, Warwick Gardens in Peckham, is hosting the first-ever Warwick Wingding. More than just a local music festival, the Warwick Wingding will celebrate the burgeoning musical talent coming out of Peckham and surrounding areas, plus feature hands-on theatre, hoola-hooping, yoga classes, stilt-walking, dressing-up, plus arts & craft stalls and much more.

The very local and very hot new band THE PEPYS (http://www.myspace.com/thepepys) will headline.

The event will be MC’d by Peckham’s (and Southside Radio’s) very own DJ Mickey Smith.

No festival would be complete without food and drink. Home Made & Home Grown stalls will be in abundance as well as a barbecue, home-made Indian, Caribbean and Latin American food plus beer and wine from Green & Blue.
The Warwick Wingding is presented by the Friends of Warwick Gardens in partnership with Southwark Council and is funded by Capital Community Fund.

Dear all,
I wanted to alert your group, friends, colleagues, neighbours to Saturday 12th September- the first International Plastic Bag Free Day.

We’re encouraging folks to use their shopping bags, get local suppliers to hand out reusable bags (sometimes their suppliers have bags as a promotion), get schools to design a school shopping bag to sell in their local community and make bags- see morsbags.com!

Poster is available at: http://www.adoptabeach.org.uk/pages/page.php?cust_id=118
