DEPTFORD STORIES

We are hyped to be involved with Deptford Stories at the end of October! A celebration of art, music, theatre and history from the area! We will taking the full sound-system down on the Friday evening and Saturday we will be roasting pigs alongside the full sound all day. Great location in the warehouses of the former Arklow Trading Estate. Not to be missed!


Deptford Stories, an arts festival celebrating the lives and legends of Deptford will launch on Friday 31st October & Saturday 1st November. It will then continue until 16th November by appointment only. Bringing together art, theatre, music and history of the past, present and future of Anthology Deptford Foundry, the festival will take place in the empty warehouses and workshops of the former site of Arklow Road Trading Estate.

Curated by experimental arts space, Harts Lane Studios, and produced by Greenspace on behalf of Anthology; Deptford Stories will be an eclectic array of mixed-media installations, sculpture, prints, light displays, textiles and tiling. From James Capper and Katie Surridge’s imposing industrial and structural pieces to Cedric Christie’s iconic light-boxes and Margot Sanders’ site-specific painting portraying the frail beauty of human bonds, the artwork is varied and engaging. The event is organized in collaboration with Goldsmiths, University of London.
