On Blackheath festival: Public meeting this Friday

The organisers of the On Blackheath festival are holding a meeting this Friday to talk about their plans for the event, due for 10 and 11 September. “This will give a chance to hear from the team behind the event, as well as an opportunity to ask any questions,” they say. The meeting’s planned for 7.30pm on 18 March at Hollyhedge House – the Territorial Army base – on Wat Tyler Road.

A court decision on whether or not the festival can go ahead is not expected until early April. As well as a website for enquiries, the organisers now have a Twitter account, @OnBlackheath as well as a Facebook page.
