This year’s free Happy Streets Festival for families living or working in Nine Elms is scheduled for Saturday July 9th, with indoor and outdoor entertainment for all ages.
Happy Streets is looking to expand its street food offering and would love to hear from any local companies interested in trading at the event. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in getting involved.
Commissioned by Wandsworth Council, the festival presents a varied programme of performances, creative activities and signposting to initiatives supporting happiness and wellbeing in the local community.
The annual festival was inspired by Happy Street, artist Yinka Ilori’s colourful redesign of the nearby railway bridge underpass on Thessaly Road. It takes place in community venues and outdoor spaces either side of the bridge, with walkabout activity spilling out into the surrounding streets, entertaining residents from their balconies and front doors.
Happy Streets showcases local artists and organisations and includes:
● Indoor and outdoor activities/performance
● live performance – music, dance, theatre, circus
● talks and debates
● workshops and classes
● arts & craft
● sports activities
● street theatre and walkabout acts.
