Phoenix Festival   2008-2014

For Phoenix Community Housing Association

Jennifer Lunn and Victoria John created the Phoenix Festival in 2008 as a launch party for Phoenix Community Housing Association. Since then it has gone from strength to strength with around four thousand visitors each year. The festival aims to give residents free access to fun and creative activities which they might not experience otherwise and allow Phoenix Staff an opportunity to engage with residents in a relaxed and happy environment.

Live music, children’s theatre, arts and craft workshops, a city farm, archery, a climbing wall and large scale family games feature alongside a whole host of information stalls from Phoenix, their partner organisations and from local community groups.

“The Phoenix Festival is one of our most loved annual events and it’s great to return to Forster Park for the seventh year running.

“The festival is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate all that’s brilliant in south Lewisham – a wonderful sense of community and special people that work hard all year round to make our area a better place to live, work and play.
