This year’s Let the Music Speak festival in Roehampton offers a day of live music, plus a host of other fun family activities.

Local and up and coming music acts will be performing, including Fuzzy Logic, King Charles and blues legend Papa George.

There will be a wide selection of stalls, a farm and sports. Food will be available. An exhibition of photos from the past 50 years of the Alton Estate will also be on view and there will be activities for children.

The August 15th event is organised by local community group Regenerate, with support from Regenerate RISE. It is funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund and Wandsworth Council. Regenerate provides opportunities for young people, children and their families and Regenerate RISE works with older people.

The two groups are also organising the annual Kings and Queens meal on the August 16th for 300 local elderly residents. This includes a three course meal and entertainment from 12 noon to 3pm.

Simon Gale from Regenerate said: “The festival is a great way to get the whole community together to have a great day celebrating the first 50 years of the Alton Estate and to dream about making the next 50 years even better”.

Both events are free.

The Festival will kick off on the Green in Danebury Avenue at 12pm and finish at 8pm.
