Support the Arts
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’.
In 2019 we launched our appeal for funds to recoup our core funding loss from Lewisham Borough Council has been cut. With support from our local community we have reached two thirds of our target of £15,000 in order to push forward with our 2020 programme. We are hugely grateful for the support. We still need your support with monthly donations, or one off donations whichever works for you and as a charity we can claim gift aid too. Click through to the donations button below.

Now in our 12th year and after 10 years of innovative summer festivals Sydenham Arts we have moved to year-round programming, giving greater opportunity for consistency and quality with optimum use of the Sydenham Centre.
We hold monthly film nights, Chamber concerts with local musicians enSEmble26, and continue our multi-arts offer (photography, music, dance, physical theatre, poetry and spoken word), whilst working with the best of local and emerging talent.
This Spring we launch our Moving with Parkinson’s programme delivered specifically for people living with Parkinson’s Disease here in Sydenham. Taking inspiration from music, poetry, life experience and your imagination with Harriet Green creating a safe place to dance, exercise, play and connect.
The summer will still feature the Artists Trail showcasing the talents of some 100 artists in over 20 locations. We have outreach projects in local schools, FREE events for our 60’s and workshops in primary and secondary schools. 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.
