Dulwich Village Events

Another email from the Events Dept at Southwark Council.

Following our recent call out for expressions of interest to hold events in the pedestrianised section of the Dulwich Village Streets for People Scheme Calton Avenue Area, we have received proposals for the following activities to take place in May and June:

Saturday 11, Sunday 12 May, Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May 1 to 6pm

Dulwich Festival Pop-up. Festival promotional stand with face painting or take-away art activity and a small performance

Sunday 9 June, 1 to 6pm

Dulwich Village Community Event. A combination of music, dance, drama, community amenity group presentations and village trader activities

Sunday 16 June, 1 to 6pm

Dulwich Village Community Event. A combination of music, dance, drama, community amenity group presentations and village trader activities

Sunday 23 June, 1 to 6pm

Dulwich Village Community Event. A combination of music, dance, drama, community amenity group presentations and village trader activities

As the space is designated adopted highway, we will be making an application to the Department for Transport for permission to permit all of these events to take place here.

Should permission be granted by the Department for Transport, we will invite event applications with full event management plans to be submitted to us by the event organisers, in order for us to assess and assist with their safety plans, then issue any approvals. Notifications will be sent out of the events that will be taking place.

We welcome your comments on the proposed events listed above. Please send your feedback by 9am, Friday 15 March

If you need more information about these proposals before making comment please get in touch.

Southwark’s outdoor events policy is available at www.southwark.gov.uk/planninganevent

Best wishes,

  1. Just seems crazy to hold an event in such a small space, and creates risks around children dashing into the road with cyclists passing and blocking the pavement for normal mortals who want to get from A-B. Why not use the other public spaces in Dulwich Village instead eg the orchard, park, Gallery or schools? This feels like trying to prove there is a purpose for this ridiculous bit of pavement!

  2. I think it’s great to see this space at the heart of the village being used for community events. So much better than having a queue of cars driving past. This will also drive footfall which will benefit local businesses.

  3. Excited to see some lovely community events lined up for the summer. Always enjoy the buzz of lots of people getting together and no doubt it will be great for the local shops
