Lewisham Live

Lewisham Live is an annual festival of music and dance by the children and young people of Lewisham.


Launched in 2010, Lewisham Live is an annual festival of music and dance which platforms the talent and creativity of young people in the borough and is delivered in partnership by arts and community organisations from across the borough. Celebrating the borough and its young people, each year around 2000 young participants take part in professionally programmed events in high-quality venues across the borough.


The festival creates unique opportunities for children & young people to showcase and develop their talents in the performing arts. Young people are given the chance to create brand new work, develop new skills and perform in some of the most prestigious arts establishments in the borough.

With performances,workshops and sharing’s covering everything from classical music to hip hop, and contemporary dance to street, Lewisham Live has something for children & young people, their families, and wider audiences from across London!
