Ruskin Park Summer Music!

Friends of Ruskin Park’s Summer Fete has just gone but never fear loads more on through the summer with the Summer Music programme on the Ruskin Park bandstand 3-5pm many Saturdays through September 16th! Basically every Saturday through the third week of September but excluding all of August. Next up is City Lit Band on July 1st and then a double bill of SELFolk and London Saxophone Choir on July 8th. The concerts are free, sponsored by Lambeth Council, and are selected and booked for us by Sharon Moloney from Making Music.

Jeffrey Doorn on the upcoming Carnegie "exhibition"

We caught up with Jeffrey Doorn of Friends of Carnegie Library at the 2016 Ruskin Park Summer Fair on June 18th where the Friends also ran a stall. Jeff talks about what is happening with respect to Lambeth's Carnegie Library "exhibition" at St Saviours Hall on Herne Hill Road (at Finsen, near the Carnegie) this week when plans for the library will be shown, and what the Friends will be up to. Friends of Carnegie are still campaigning to claw back the library and hope people will question, not just accept plans.

The theme for the 2016 FoRP Photography Competition is 'Ruskin Park, My Favourite Place'

Photography can be used in so many ways to tell a story, we're looking for images that tell us what makes Ruskin Park so special for you.
