100 Images of Migration in Lambeth

In 2013, the Migration Museum project was launched where people were asked to submit images that they believed to be resonant of migration. Images were collected from professional and amateur photogrpahers and were all accompanied by an explanatory text. These images have been collated in this exhibition and they project a powerful image of migration in Britain today, with 100 of the most affecting images being the centerpieces of this exhibition. Only a very short bus ride from our Kennington office, drop if you’re keen to find out more about properties to rent or properties to buy in the area.

If you were a fan of the swinging 60’s and love music from that era, then head along to the Southbank where the boat, Pride of London at Festival Pier will be welcoming people to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love. If you love dancing to live soul, psychadelic and house music and want to enjoy London’s most iconic viewis from the terrace of a boat on the river Thames, then this is one event not to be missed.

Indonesian Weekend in Southwark

This weekend Indonesian culture will be making its presence known at the annual Indonesian festival that takes place at Potter’s Field Park.
