Summer Arts 2014

Summer Arts is back and bigger than ever!


Three weeks of fun, performances and evening extras. This action-packed project includes intensive week-long courses, guest artists, and a chance to perform at the end of each week, right on the main stage of the Albany.


This year we will be visiting the Albany, and Deptford Lounge in Deptford, Woodpecker Youth Centre in New Cross, TNG in Sydenham, and Bromley and Downham Youth and Community Centre. So, wherever you are in Lewisham, a Summer Arts course is never far away.


Mon 18 Aug - Sat 13 Sep

Bring the Happy

Bring the Happy is an ongoing project about happiness, an attempt to map moments and memories of happiness in Deptford and across the country. A first kiss, a lost love, a longed for baby, childhood heroes, a proposal, a dance, a chance encounter – where did it happen and how happy did it make you feel on a scale from 1 to 10?

Thu 25 Sep - Sat 27 Sep

A Cure for Ageing

A piece about being young and foolish, and becoming old and wise. Or about being young and wise, and becoming old and foolish. It asks how we can talk more honestly about ageing, drawing together true personal accounts and shameless speculation in a celebration of life and an attempt to fall in love with our own decline.

We're Going on a Bear Hunt

A family go on an expedition of a lifetime – running down the grassy bank, wading through the cold river, squelching over the oozy mud, stumbling into the dark forest, then peering into a cave… what will they find?
