A fabulous festival on your own doorstep

Glastonbury. We can’t all get tickets, we can’t all afford them. Some of us, frankly, don't even want to go.

And why would you? Why haul a load of camping gear across the country when you can have a fabulous festival experience in south east London? The Crystal Palace Overground Festival, now in its 9th year, is a community festival organised by the lovely people of SE19.

Held on the 24-28th June, most of the events are free - so no mad internet scramble for tickets - and it’s run entirely by volunteers.

The Cambria choir now has over 40 members, and are singing their seasonal concert at the Cambria this Monday evening. It's free of charge and proves hugely popular.


Conducted and arranged by Sarah Fisher and Lucy Davies, the choir are sounding rather fantastic, in preparation for their entry at the Choir of the Year. If you want to eat whilst watching, book a table in advance by calling the Cambria. Expect a varied (and enthusiastic!) programme, from rousing ballads to uplifting pop anthems.


The Cambria is on 40 Kemerton Road, SE5 9AR.

The Umbrellabirds!

The Unbrellabirds are a folk music collective based in Herne Hill starting to take the indie folk scene by storm ... and just in time for the summer season! The collective has evolved from musical connections at the Steiner School when it was based in Streatham. From ad hoc beginnings at Steiner kids' music class jams, The Umbrellabirds have been guided into existence by Jason Collins who has a long history in the music business (he once toured Japan as a member of The Seers) through a series of smaller incarnations and collaborations, each with a different name, like The Harbour Road Band, playing spaces like The Cambria on Kemerton Road! Just in case you weren't aware, South London has become the epicentre of a huge folk resurgence!
