As part of the festival we’ll be staging free performances, workshops and talks for groups across the borough during July and October in venues from a council chamber to community halls.
The festival includes a mix of private and public events, with the centrepiece of the festival being performances of our show When Charlie Met Joan, a play inspired by Lewisham’s former MP Dame Joan Ruddock.
Performances open to the public:
Monday 20th July, 4.30pm – The Green Man, 335 Bromley Road, London, SE6 2RP
No need to book for this performance – simply turn up!
Wednesday 22nd July, 7.30pm – Lewisham Council Chambers
Due to limited space this performance is invite only, we do however have a few remaining spaces so if you’re interested in attending please send an email to Estelle at firstname.lastname@example.org. After the performance there will be a panel talk exploring women in politics.
The People & Politics Festival is supported by Lewisham Council, Lewisham Southwark College and The Green Man. When Charlie Met Joan was developed with support from The Bike Shed Theatre.
