Enjoy music on the bandstand from 2pm this Sunday with Junction Jazz playing jazz standards, Dixieland, Latin and funk from 2pm (25th August).
And on 1st September our last bandstand performance for the summer will feature a range of acoustic musicians from 2pm with Stop Look Listen.
The Little Cat Cafe will open every day next week including bank holiday Monday (if the weather isn't terrible).
Celebrate this year's harvest this year at Myatt's with a free performance by Levi Roots and a range of food fun for children and adults from 1pm to 4pm on 14th September 2013.
Levi, who lives locally and is starting to get involved with our food projects, will be headlining the event with the Herbs and Spices band, Earl 16 and Tasonia.
We'll have Thai and Caribbean stalls selling food made from vegetables grown in our greenhouse, and a cake stall featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables (with a display of vegetables too!).
Brixton People's Kitchen, who make monthly feasts at Myatt's from waste food, will be making magic with their mobile kitchen. Children will be able to cook over an open fire as well as foraging for food during a workshop provided by NaturActive (who give children the chance to explore nature during weekly sessions in the Mulberry Centre).
Many thanks to the Heritage Lottery Fund which is funding the music, and to the Big Lottery Fund's Local Food scheme for supporting our food project. NaturActive workshop will be paid for by MFPP using income raised by hiring out the Mulberry Centre.
Parks - be part of the conversation
What do you think about local residents getting more closely involved with running Myatt's Fields Park?
Lambeth Council has traditionally managed parks and open spaces - from cutting the grass to collecting the litter - but now as a Cooperative Council it is changing its focus to supporting residents who want to have more say in how parks are managed, and how budgets are spent.
This might mean that a group of residents (possibly Myatt's Fields Park Project) could be managing Myatt's either independently or jointly with Lambeth.
Before the council does anything, it wants to know what you think, and therefore they're inviting the public to complete either a long online questionnaire or our short questionnaire. Public consultation ends on Friday 18th October 2013. As well as helping Lambeth to know your views, this would also help to guide what happens at Myatt's so we'd be very grateful for your views.
Greenhouse open day
Help in the greenhouse on 8th September and enjoy a free lunch afterwards. Our monthly gardening session, which is suitable for everyone and all ages, will take place from 11.30am on Sunday 8th. Everyone welcome - no prior knowledge of gardening needed.
Retired people's lunch club
Retired people are welcome to come and eat lunch made with vegetables and fruit from the greenhouse at the depot from noon this Friday. These sessions are informal and friendly and everyone is welcome. We ask for a £2 contribution towards the cost of the food. The lunch club is funded by the Peter Minet Trust.
Our free events for 2013 will include:
- 3/4rd August Sleepover
- 14th September Harvest Festival
- 19th October Big Draw
- 15th December Christingle carol concert
