An “enchanted forest” and live music are among the attractions planned for Greenwich Together ’21, a one-day festival to take place in Charlton Park on 21 August.
The event is a continuation of Greenwich Council’s annual Great Get Together event, which was held at Barrack Field on Woolwich Common before moving to Woolwich town centre in 2019.
Now the council is promising “family-friendly, Covid-safe activities for all ages and abilities to enjoy. Try out some sports or dance moves, listen to bands give it their all, or wander through an enchanted forest being charmed by the flora and fauna bursting into life all around you.”
There will be children’s activities, craft workshops, local community and voluntary sector area, live music, a dance tent, sports and ‘have a go’ activities, a marketplace and street food from around the world, a chillout zone with yoga and mindfulness activities, and funfair rides.
Organisers are looking for bands and traders to take part – apply via the council website.
Greenwich Together ’21 is being put together by Continental Drifts, which organised the Sparkle in the Park event at Avery Hill Park in Eltham last December.
Victoria Sandell from Continental Drifts will be filling in park users about the festival at the Friends of Charlton Park AGM, which takes place via Zoom on Tuesday night at 8pm – sign up via the Friends website.
