Lewisham Live Festival is back for 2021 but with a difference. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance lots of activity will now take place online or behind closed doors, but there will still be loads of great videos, recordings and pictures from every project which will be shared.


Lewisham Music are running 2 projects this year, a Rap and Lyricism Masterclass series with rap legend, Kenny Baraka, and the Fellowship Music Collective, a ground-breaking new cross-genre music project! Please click through to the pages below and sign up!
