The Nunhead Experience

The Nunhead Experience

This largely bike-powered music and arts festival will provide 12 hours of entertainment in heart of Nunhead. Come along, join in the party and get involved.

There's plenty of activities for the whole family to enjoy: create your own print, make a film, produce some art, shop in the market, go on a local history walk, enjoy some roaming theatre performances, listen to live music, watch films, listen to storytellers, pedal-power a sound-system or cinema come nightfall, play musical bingo, win prizes and even play out your three favourite music tracks to the crowd with the 'Stick it on' sessions.

Nunhead Green will provide the base for the activities but there will be opportunities to explore some of the surrounding buildings and roads as the library and Salvation Army open their doors for the day. Local pubs The Old Nun's Head and The Pyrotechnics Arms will be welcoming people in too!

The fun kicks off with a film screening for kids in Nunhead Library at 11.00am and ends with a film classic on a cycle-powered cinema system provided by Electric Pedals and Free Film Festival starting at 8.30pm.

Bring your bikes, blankets and a picnic!
