Brockwell Park

Inaugural parkrun

 

62 intrepid runners line up at the start of the first Brockwell Park parkrun. 5km in length and approximately one and half laps of the park.

 

Organised by parkruns and marshalled by volunteers it was a great start to the series of events. There will be a 5km parkrun every Saturday at 9.00 a.m., start by the Lido. Each time you do the run your time is recorded and you can track your progress on their web site. It is ideal for all abilities, jog, run, walk, whatever suits. Today saw one runner being pulled by two large Husky dogs (no advantage as the snow had gone), another went round pushing a buggy with child in.

Mince Pies were available at the Lido cafe so scored high on the Mince Pie ratings.

JOM Micro Music Festival returns to Brockwell Park for 2019

For the second year running Brockwell Park will host a free music festival featuring Junior Open Mic’ers with a line-up of 30 acts. The festival hopes to raise £1000 for Brockwell Park Community Partners, the charity that co-runs the park.

Last year’s event attracted an audience of 400 with festival quality sound engineered by one of the UKs top bands. The acts were eclectic - from punk bands to recordists to caped crusaders. Part of the fun was seeing who performed next.

Saturday at Field Day Reviewed

The Saturday proceedings at Field Day in Brockwell Park kicked off under overcast lunchtime skies, whilst entry to the festival included a very thorough body search and sniffer dogs. However, early arrivals were rewarded with splendid set from North London's Jimothy Lacoste on the Crack Stage, performing his synth hooks and rapped lyrics about living in our favourite city to a knot of enthusiastic fans who clearly knew all the words. An original upcoming artist to watch out for.

Field Day – Weekend Highlights

With Field Day in Brockwell Park a week away, it’s a good time to look ahead to a few of the highlights of the weekend, outside of the more obvious attractions of the headline acts such as Erykah Badu, Gilles Peterson, and Four Tet.

Tom Cox paints Brockwell Park!

Tom Cox is an artist born and raised in Herne Hill and currently based in Tulse Hill. He normally aims to paint scenes with a balance of human activity and architectural angularity.

This is his recent painting of Brockwell Park, a space very much in local news recently in connection with Lambeth Council.

On this day Tom was walking around with his canvas looking for his next subject and he decided to go to Herne Hill market on a Sunday because, as he notes for us:

Brockwell Park - Lost in Music

In looking at the future of large music events in Brockwell Park, it can be informative to take a look back at the past, when the Park hosted everything from reggae festivals, to a CND peace festival (headlined by Madness), to London Pride, and even a cannabis festival from 2000-2004.
