Original works from Rose Bruford College and Bird College students will be presented
Manor House in Sidcup is set to host a celebration of arts and music next month, with the launch of the first Sidcup Fringe festival.
Students from Rose Bruford College and Bird College will perform a programme of original short music and drama on June 16 and 17.
It has been organised in partnership with Sidcup Partners (Sidcup Business Improvement District) and Bexley council.
The event celebrates the wealth of artistic talent already in Sidcup, particularly at Rose Bruford and Bird College, the two higher and further performing arts institutes located in the town.
It also supports the developing vision for a performance production hub in Sidcup, linked to a Greater London Authority’s Thames Estuary Cultural Production Corridor vision.
The programme for the festival will include music and drama performances from 6pm in the Manor House. Family activities, food and drinks, will be offered alongside the performances in the grounds during the afternoons and into the evening on both days.
