- Streathham Festival celebrates 10th year

June 30, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
Every summer since 2002, the South London district of Streatham has played host to a pleasant week of events including art, comedy, dance, film, food, literature, music and photography.

This year, from July 2nd-10th, the festival marks its 10th anniversary, and has decided on a theme of 'Earth' to make this year's festival a celebration of the planet.

The event has grown rapidly over the years, from the first festival in 2002 when just 600 people turned up for the two events that were organised, to last year where over 10,000 people attended to enjoy 40 exciting displays.

The list of attractions is endless and is spread across venues occupying the whole Common. Highlights include the Big Day Out, which opens the festival, and the World Sounds Concert providing an evening of musical entertainment on Saturday July 9th.

For anyone wishing to visit the event as part of their London experience, offers a selection of marvellous hotels, with a number of Greenwich hotels available next to the Thames, including Radisson Edwardian New Providence Wharf.
