Bees Road planting event on the Myatt’s South estate!

Lambeth Council and the Friends of Myatt’s South will be hosting a seed planting event on Saturday, 22 April (11am-1pm) as part of the borough’s Bee’s Road initiative.

Supported by the Mayor of London, Lambeth was awarded £440,000 as part of Sadiq Khan’s rewilding initiative last year, with this investment aimed at providing additional funding for the Council’s Bee Roads initiative. This ambitious programme is aimed at converting ten miles of roadside land, including roundabouts and verges of roads, into wildflower mini-meadows which will provide habitats for wildlife including butterflies, bumble-bees and other pollinators.

Full details of the event are below – all residents welcome!

“Hooligans” to bring love in a time of tyranny to Myatt’s Fields

A sell-out show born in the bomb-shelters of Kyiv is to be staged at our local Longfield Hall at the end of March.

Called Bunker Cabaret, the show is described as a mix of music, poetry, dance and film and is a “powerful exploration of love versus totalitarianism, and the personal conflicts of making art in time of war”.

The show is the work of a company called the Hooligan Art Community, who say it was developed partly in the bomb-shelters of Kyiv. The Longfield dates are a stop on a UK tour following a sold-out run in London last September.

Two performances will be held on Thursday 30 March and Friday 31 March, with tickets ranging from £5 – £22.

You can buy tickets here.
