Support the Arts

After 10 years of innovative summer festivals Sydenham Arts moves to year-round programming, giving greater opportunity for consistency and quality with optimum use of the Sydenham Centre.

We have been trialing our model since October 2018 with monthly film nights, the launch of our Chamber Series with local musicians enSEmble26, our multi-arts Platform series with photography, music, dance, physical theatre, poetry and spoken word, whilst working with the best of local and emerging talent.  All this with a programme of FREE events for our plus 60’s generation and workshops in St Bartholomew’s Primary School and Sydenham Girls School.

The summer will still feature the Artists Trail now in it’s 11th year showcasing the talents of some 100 artists in over 20 locations.

Sydenham Arts relies on support to deliver an innovative array of artistic activities for the whole community and to achieve our charitable aims ‘to provide, promote and advance the Arts for the benefit of the public, in particular people who live, work and are educated in Sydenham and surrounding areas’.

Times are tough – sadly our funding from Lewisham Borough Council has been cut.  Monthly donations will help as will one off donations.  As a charity we can claim gift aid too.  We have a target of £15,000.  By supporting us financially your contribution will help us to continue to deliver a vibrant and diverse programme and make a difference in our community.
