Calling all South East London Bands and Traders

Cross Fest will return in 2015 for 3 days of great live music, performances and community workshops, taking over the New Cross Inn from the 7-9th August. It’s all in aid of some great local charities – including New Cross Learning, The Samaritans and Deptford Library, and will be celebrating all things great about SE London!

We’ve got some amazing plans in the pipeline, and will be hitting you up with news very soon, but in the meantime we want to hear from all local bands and traders who might fancy getting involved.

With live music running from 6pm til late every night, and loads of space for stalls/pop-up shops during the day, there’s loads of opportunities to get involved – all you need to do is fill out the relevant form below, and let us know all about you and what you do. We’re looking at bands across all sorts of genres and traders of all shapes/sizes/type, so don’t be shy and come say hi.

We’re ideally aiming for local groups based in and around the New Cross and wider SE London area, but all applications will be considered. If you’ve any questions, let us know via, or via the official Cross Fest 2015 page.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Random Hand Final Tour!

It was with great sadness that we heard Random Hand have decided to call it a day, and that the self-professed Punk/Ska/Metal Bastards are on their way out.

However, it sure cheered us up when we booked them in for a date on their final UK tour.

On 2nd July, Random Hand will be blowing the roof off the New Cross Inn for their last ever show in South East London and we’re sure as hell pleased that we get to share that with them!
