This year’s remarkable weather saved one if its best days to add to the magic of a Brockwell Park music festival with a difference today (16 September).

All the performers were young – some no older than five. But act after act won sincere and enthusiastic applause from an audience on the grass and gravel outside Brockwell Hall.

The festival, featuring local youngsters who have taken part in Junior Open Mic sessions at Off the Cuff in Herne Hill, was organised by volunteers – from its professional-level sound to the smooth-running organisation and timing.

The Blog had to tear itself away before the end of the festival, but we hope to have more images later … so call back if you want to see more of our fantastic young musicians.
