Brixton City Festival is a part of Ovalhouse’s series of work accompanying our move to Brixton, Coldharbour Lane in 2020. Following the great success of the 2016 and 2017 festivals, we hope this year’s festival will help to introduce even more Brixton residents to Ovalhouse and our work, through an entertaining and inclusive event for the local area.
