Lewisham Live is an ambitious music and dance festival taking place across four weeks every March, involving 12 shows, 9 partner organisations, 2000 young performers and an audience of 4000 people.

Lewisham Live continues to push artistic boundaries by bringing professional, high-profile artists to the borough and producing innovative, high-quality music and dance performances by young people, schools, arts organisations and youth groups.

Collectively, festival partners have introduced an innovative music and dance collaboration strand for the festival, bringing the two art forms together and developing the collaborative skills and understanding required of interdisciplinary artists in the 21st Century.
