Hundreds of people joined us for our Walk & Talk event on a beautiful day on Thursday 18th July.
There was loads on:
Solo 1 from Postive Art created fantastic street art. Red Peas made a gorgeous free BBQ. Opus Cafe had trolleys going up and down the road giving out watermelon and fruit punch. Blockworkout showed why they’re so inspiring. The kids from Hillmead Primary School decorated Somerleyton Passage with chalk drawings. The Remakery and Brixton Green cleared the over grown plants ready for creating planting beds along the street.Maria Santos and Carla Ribeiro made a lovely party on open space off Coldharbour Lane (and also helped so much!). We had fantastic face painting from Piluka Face Paints had great performances from Rob Grove, Luzi Mara and Dorian. The Lambeth Streets Team did a fantastic job cleaning Somerleyton Passage. The Brixton Green Trustees, Lambeth Regeneration Team and Deborah from the Ovalhouse were all there talking through the proposals and getting feedback. We also had loads of fantastic volunteers.
Thank you all so much for coming and helping to shape the future of Somerleyton Road!
So many people said how happy they were seeing the Somerleyton Passage being made into a positive place. Art Nouveau tweeted: “Somerleyton Passge Street Art looks amazing. turned a dark and unfreindly passage into beautiful space.bigup 2 Brixton artist”
