The 7 Bridges Festival
On June 2011 the 7 Bridges Festival took place in the heart of Loughborough Junction: a three days event, which featured a host of performances - from comedy, to music and drama - as well as workshops, literary and history talks, culminating in a fete in Wickes Gardens with a band and a choir!
BBC London radio reported from the festival interviewing, among the others, Loughborough Junction Action Group chair Anthea Masey as well as local poet Michael Gross. Listen to the interview here:
The festival had a great line up, including a lecture held under the bridge by Dr Brian Rosen from the Natural History Museum about the Cambrian Explosion; history tour of the Junction with local archivist Jon Newman; performances by poet Michael Gross, Lambeth Youth Orchestra, Rup, Miss Kimberley, Dave Aardvark; talks by Stella Duffy, Adam Mars Jones, Evie Wyld, Brian Chikwava, Clare Peake and Jeremy Page.
