The fourth outing of this excellent annual event officially kicks off tomorrow, 5 September, running for 10 days across all sorts of interesting local venues. But tonight a special event will open proceedings with a flourish. The Metamorphosis Project will transform the 70-foot facade of the tower block pictured above, on Nunhead’s Brayards Estate, with sound, projected light, digital animation and 3D mapping by students from the Design Futures Department at the University of Greenwich. It’s free and the projection will happen twice at around 8.15 and 9pm ish.
And as for the rest of the festival – our picks? A couple of musical documentaries: the Story of Lovers’ Rock showing on the Cossall Estate (15 September), and the musically gorgeous and joyfully uplifting Searching For Sugarman at Rye Books on 10 September. Though Welcome to Busseywood at the eponymous building, Jack Cousteau at the Centre for Wildlife Gardening and a 1960s, 70s and 80s children’s TV nostalgia-fest at the Victoria Inn sound tempting too.
