OH (Oval House) red brick logo for Brixton City Festival August 11-14 2016

Bring your Brixton belongings down to the Memory Museum, where they'll be part of an ever-changing performance installation.

A keepsake collection for Brixton locals to save their mementos from the tide of change, before a performance on a boat in the pool at Brockwell Lido

By Nick Field, invited artist. Nick says, “I’ve lived in Brixton for many years, and it has never failed to fascinate and inspire me. It is a unique place in London and in the world, but it is changing so fast that what makes it special is threatened. I am excited to have this opportunity to explore that and what it means through this commission, I’ll be making a performance piece as beguiling, compelling and urgent as Brixton itself.”

Ovalhouse is pleased to announce the 2016 Brixton City Festival on 11th – 14th August: a celebration of Brixton with new artist commissions showcasing exciting performers. Over the four days of the festival, audiences will enjoy unique theatrical experiences in everyday locations transformed into live performances to stumble across. A playground of theatre, circus, music, art and indescribable fun – Brixton City Festival has something for everyone.
