Happy Streets Festival 2023

This year’s Happy Streets Festival on Saturday 15 July will again bring free music, dance and family entertainment to venues around Thessaly Road!

Stilt dancers with children



Don’t miss the local family highlight of the summer – six hours of live performances on- and off-stage, pizza making, crafts and activities, wellbeing sessions, playspaces and information stalls.

Free and open to all, this year’s Happy Streets Festival around Thessaly Road, SW8, has something for everyone.

Take part in family dance workshops, discos and sports activities in and around St George’s primary school festival venue, plus the main stage has a packed programme of live music and dance performances.

For some quiet time, get creative with outdoor craft workshops, a mural or colour therapy.

Learn more about the heritage of the local area with guided walks, join laughter yoga and breathing sessions or drag story time at the ROSE community clubroom festival venue.

And don’t go hungry! Make your own free pizza at the ROSE, drop in for free refreshments at the Happy Cafe at St George’s school playground or buy a tasty French Creole & Caribbean fusion dish from Citron Vert.
