About Us

Sydenham Arts is a registered charity providing arts activities and events all year round from our permanent home and performance space at the Sydenham Centre.  Since 2009 we have staged annual festivals in July, embracing every art form.  We are committed to providing a platform for emerging, local artists as well as bring in high quality, established artists to the area.

Our mission is to ‘provide, promote and advance the Arts’ for the benefit of the community in Sydenham and South East London’. Behind the formal words lies an urgent wish to make Sydenham a better place by making the Arts part of our lives throughout the year.

Officially established in 2009, a lot has changed since then!

From festival extravaganzas to project supporting those most at need in our community, there's a lot to discover about our work, past, present and future.
