OnBlackheath Festival in partnership with John Lewis has chosen For Jimmy to be the official charity partner for the festival taking place on Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September.
Every year the festival partners with charities that impact the London community and this year we are so proud to be part of such a wonderful event in our own community.
Appearing at the festival over the two days will be Travis, Metronomy, The Libertines, Jake Bugg, De La Soul, Fun Lovin’ Criminal and KT Tunstall, among many more acts. As well as live music, OnBlackheath offers festival goers the ultimate festival weekend with mouth-watering food and drink and a fun-filled program of entertainment for all ages on the historic green space of London’s Blackheath.
The John Lewis Food Village will bring award-winning street food, communal dining, a food demonstration stage, guest chefs, pop-up restaurants and the local Meantime Craft Brewery Bar to Blackheath while children can explore the Family Playground featuring an adventure area, giant art walls, kids crafting, a storytelling stage, street theatre and much more still to be announced.
“It’s an honour to be selected as the charity partner for such a fantastic local festival. Everything we do at For Jimmy is about bringing communities together, so we couldn’t be more pleased to be part of this celebration of south-east London. We look forward to sharing our work with festival-goers over the weekend.” Barry Mizen, MBE
OnBlackheath has established itself as a landmark event in the London calendar and has previously seen the likes of Massive Attack, Grace Jones, Elbow, Madness, Manic Street Preachers and Primal Scream take the main stage by storm. Last year over 25,000 music and food lovers gathered to enjoy the end-of-season festival, across the two days.
Tom Wates, co-founder of OnBlackheath, commented: “We’re back with two days of unforgettable music, food and family entertainment this summer, celebrating this stunning part of London and bringing the festival season to a close. With a stellar line-up to take the festival into its fourth year, this is one weekend you shouldn’t miss, and the best value festival ticket in London.”
