GALA Community Information

GALA Festival is an independent music, culture and arts festival which launched in 2016, and took place in Peckham Rye Park in 2018. The event showcases the best food, drink and music from South East London and surrounding areas. The festival plans to return in 2019, and the organisers are keen to make sure that the event takes place with minimal disruption to park users, local residents and local businesses alike.

This page will be dedicated to the local community and updated regularly with relevant information as and when confirmed. Please check this page if you would like to find out more about the event.

Community Consultation Meetings

In December 2018 we held an open forum Community Consultation Meeting at Peckham Levels.

If the licence application is successful we will look to hold further community consultation meetings in the lead up to the event to provide updates on planning for the event, and to listen to the views of the local community. We are hoping to hold these meetings in March and April 2019, and we will provide details on this page regarding the confirmed dates for these meetings.


A link to the presentation delivered at the community meeting in December is available here.

Further resources will follow. This page will be updated when relevant information is confirmed and ready for public announcement.
