‘The Little Big Peace Event’ is free, three day festival, now in its sixth year.  Founded by local residents, the festival will see a series of events take place in the south London town, from Wednesday 21 to Saturday 24 September.

Events will include:

Festival organiser, Simi Solomon of Love Streatham, commented “The Little Big Peace Event, founded by local resident Mel Larsen is now in its 6th year. I am delighted that she invited me to be part of the leadership this year. I am proud to be involved in this festival – it’s living proof that we can all get along and work together towards a better future for all our children. There are so many ways to encourage peace: the multi-faith event we have scheduled is just one example of this. We also offer film, music, fun, and relaxation. If you live in Streatham and want to make a difference, get involved!”

The Little Big Peace Event is a free to attend community run event which relies on donations. This year’s event is being coordinated by the staff at inStreatham, Streatham’s Business Improvement District.
