Carnegie Community Trust (CCT) was established in 2015 to preserve the Carnegie Library building for the use of the community.

To celebrate 100 years since the building of the 'Homes Fit for Heroes' at the Sunray and Casino Estates, Bell House, the Dulwich Society and Southwark Council are offering a series of free events celebrating these notable estates.
On Valentine's Day, 14/02/2020, Herne Hill's very own speakeasy will open for business. An evening of jazz, blues and poetry will take place in the Function Room of The Florence pub on Dulwich Road, hosted by Giovanni Delfino and his jazz trio, with guest artists Lauren Dalrymple and Tanica Psalmist.

For the next two evenings, Herne Hill Music Festival is all about John Ruskin, former Herne Hill resident and sage of South London. The Festival marks the bicentenary of his birth in 1819 (died 1900) with two Ruskin-themed performances on consecutive nights for #FestDay6 and #FestDay7, both sponsored by The Herne Hill Society.
