Herne Hill Music Festival's Octoberfest warmup begins this weekend with the first of two free Bandstand events! Come out to the Station Square Market on Sunday Sept. 7th for Bandstand Event #1 and three very different and talented acts. Wind orchestra Jolly Pops, local jazz/R'n'B prodigy Mansur Brown and Brixton-based Andrea & Rafael's Spanish-Latin Acoustic Guitar Experience take to the stage between 11-3. Whether you prefer wind arrangements of pop from the likes of the Kaiser Chiefs, R&B, jazz, flamenco or rumbas, there'll be something to get you in gear! http://at.orpheusweb.co.uk/Festival/?page=programme&id2=83 Have a listen to Andrea & Rafael performing their brand of flamenco with 'Sugar Rush' on Soundcloud: http://bit.ly/1pAsIGD
Dear Herne Hill residents,I'm writing to let you know that the local Cambria Choir will be opening its doors for new members. The first two weeks of the autumn term will be open for all to come along and have a sing, either email me, Lucy for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org, or just turn up.
So we begin on the 8th September and the 15th at 7.15 for a 7.30 start. We rehearse upstairs in the Cambria pub on Kemerton Road. Each session is £6, payable on the night. We'd love to see and hear you; we are a non-auditioning, friendly choir, made up of all sorts! We regularly perform around the area, and in the pub of course. If you haven't heard us, we are male and female, four part harmony, singing mainly pop music. We are always on the look-out for new men in particular! The choir is run by myself and Sarah Fisher.
In 1961, theatre director Joan Littlewood and architect Cedric Price had an idea to create a fun palace. This could be a ‘laboratory of fun’ where the community might learn and participate. Their brainstorm never materialised but as a tribute to the concept and in Littlewood's centenary year, well over 100 Fun Palaces will be sprouting up across the UK on the same weekend. And Herne Hill gets one - Brockwell Lido becomes a Fun Palace on Oct. 5th! So if you always wanted to swim with mermaids, paddle in a kayak, learn sign language, hear spooky stories, be a Bishop in a human chess game … and much more … this Herne Hill Fun Palace is for you.
