The 21st Dulwich Festival returns next weekend, with the usual “local-festival” mix of history, music and a fete.

Many of the events need booking in advance, and even though tickets only went on sale a few days ago, at least one is sadly sold out.

Some of the history talks sound interesting, as does a walking tour of the local area’s street art, which I now learn is based on Baroque era paintings from the Dulwich Picture Gallery.

A music thingy along the lost Effra river might be something to look out for.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
