Heart Streatham Issue 56

Welcome to our October issue, which includes the official guide to The Streatham Festival 2019, 11-20th October. This annual Festival celebrates the rich cultural and creative life Streatham is fortunate to enjoy. There are more than 60 events in 33 venues from The Hideaway and Streatham Space Project to small shops and cafes. Please have a look at the guide in our centre pages and check out www.streathamfestival. com for full listings, booking details, and the latest information. There’s something for everyone, and most events are inexpensive or free to attend. Enjoy art exhibitions, dance, theatre, spoken word, workshops, and of course, lashings of live music!
