After three years Dulwich Festival is back this May to celebrate the arts and rebuild community connections.
Taking as its themes, Regeneration and Awakening, the festival offers a diverse range of events, many of them free, which include art, music, literature, comedy, walks and talks.
For lovers of art there is the chance to visit some 400 local artists in their homes. For lovers of music there is classical, jazz, choral and pop. There is also plenty of comedy on offer – from a bicycle-powered production of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night to previews of shows going to this summer’s Edinburgh Fringe. Festival walks and talks cover aspects of local history and well-known authors talk about their latest books.
Families can enjoy plenty of free events over the course of the festival which include an Orchard Family Day in Dulwich village, the Dulwich Park Fair; Love West Dulwich Spring Fair and The Goose Green Fair with the return of its much-loved donkeys.
