Field Day Community Fund

Field Day are inviting applications for the community fund they have set up to benefit local organisations and projects impacted by the event. 

The fund will be allocated by an independent panel consisting of a Field Day Director, local ward councillor, Brockwell Park Community Partners representative and Herne Hill Forum representative and will be at the discretion of the festival organisers. Please note all successful applicants will be notified by email by 16th July 2018.

Applications will be judged on the following criteria:

Herne Hill Summer Celebration - 23rd June 2018

This year, Herne Hill will see a community picnic taking place in Brockwell Park on 23rd June as part of the nationwide Great Get Together.

The bring-and-share picnic is open to everybody, of all ages and backgrounds. Picnickers are encouraged to bring food that fits the theme - 'Your Favourite Food From Home' - both to eat and to share with others. This will provide the opportunity for people to get to know a little more about each other and to celebrate the wonderful, vibrant place that is Herne Hill - London's best kept secret!

In a bid to disassociate himself from fellow Herne Hill councillor Jim Dickson’s comments about Field Day objectors, barrister and councillor Jack Holborn has threatened to take a Brockwell Tranquillity member to court ...

Field Day and Lovebox in Brockwell Park

Friends of Brockwell Park has from the outset opposed the applications by Field Day/The Mighty Hoopla (1-3 June) and Lovebox/Citadel (13-15 July) to hold major events in Brockwell Park this summer, on the grounds that their size (up to 40,000 a day for three days, taking from a third to a fifth of the park for weeks at a time) was grossly disproportionate for a small, hilly urban park such as Brockwell.

When a Biodiversity Assessment is Just a Chat on the Phone

At the meeting on 18th January to discuss the proposed Field Day and LoveBox music festivals in Brockwell Park this summer, Lee Fiorentino of Lambeth's Events Department made some very encouraging statements about Biodiversity and Brockwell Park, as I am highlighting below. For why the biodiversity of Brockwell Park is so important, and Lambeth Council's legal requirements to safeguard it, see Helen Firminger's comprehensive article posted 21-1-18:
