St Faith's

What’s most important for our local community centre?

St Faith’s is a vibrant community centre at the heart of our neighbourhood and we’d love your views about how to make it  an even better place to meet, learn and relax. 

Situated at the bottom of Red Post Hill (just along the road from The Charter School), we offer groups and activities for all ages and interests. These include an older people’s art group, ballet classes, toddler drop-in sessions and a men’s group. We’ve got a beautiful hall for wedding receptions and parties and a big garden to explore nature. 

Noye's Fludde is Music Festival Finale today (Sun. 19th) 6pm!

 

Benjamin Britten and original production, 1958


 

Nearly Festival finale! That's Benjamin Britten's Noye's Fludde at 6pm today - the Herne Hill Music Festival's community opera! And appropriate too for an area affected by flooding for so long! Noyes' Fludde means Noah's Flood. The project took a long time for the Festival team to get going - hard work fundraising, then more fundraising, then organising and rehearsing. Then costumes and props! Based on a 13thC Mystery Play, Britten wrote it to be performed in a church hall by amateur performers, particularly children, so local schools (JAGS and Rosendale) as well as local musicians are involved.

 

 

HHMF's Britten Opera Fundraiser - can you help?

Herne Hill Music Festival's crowdfunding campaign is underway to source an additional £1000 to help pay for staging of Benjamin Britten's opera, 'Noye's Fludde' (1957) in October. The Festival has a grant but needs to raise more money equal to the same amount! You can donate through gogetfunding http://gogetfunding.com/project/noye-s-fludde or through the Festival website at http://www.hernehillfestival.org/. This is a community opera based on the story of Noah’s Ark and on a 15th-century mystery play. It remains one of Britten's most engaging works as he wrote it for amateurs, especially children, in order to enjoy planning, rehearsing, performing and generally making music together.
