The 2019 Lambeth Heritage Festival returns for its seventh year and once again it offers an amazingly varied line-up of events that will be taking place throughout September.
This year there are over 60 separate talks, films, music, exhibitions, walks and workshops covering a whole range of interests and geographical perspectives. There will be everything from John Ruskin to barrow boy Buster Martin. There will be tours of Lambeth Palace, Brixton Windmill and Henry Tate’s Streatham gardens, as well as guided walks through Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens, John Ruskin’s Herne Hill, the Brixton that was never built, and Van Gogh's house.
Don’t miss the Lambeth Local History Fair at Brixton Library on Saturday 7 September. Elsewhere, you can learn about the power of real bread, discover a local orchid artist, celebrate South London's Polish culture, or learn how to contribute to the exciting digital history source that is Layers of London.
This year's programme has been kindly sponsored by the Walcot Foundation.
