Saturday 15th July

Experience an afternoon of spoken word, songs and rap from some of South London’s best up and coming music talent.


Join us on Saturday, 15th July from 4pm onwards at St John’s Waterloo as we celebrate the creative ouput of young people at Alchemy, a creative music lab and professional mentoring organisation based at London’s Goldsmiths University and working for Lewisham’s young community.

This is a free event. We recommend you register your attendance through this portal.


Alchemy is an evolving collective of professional artists, youth workers and Goldsmiths university student ambassadors and placement students working with Lewisham organisations and schools to offer a wide range of professional music skills training, mentoring and performance opportunities to local 13-18 year olds. The project is led by musician and associate lecturer in music and education Mikey Kirkpatrick, made possible by Goldsmiths University (Widening Participation, Music Department, STaCS Department) with additional support from The Albany Deptford, GARA (Goldsmiths Anti-Racist Action), Deptford Challenge Trust, The Progress Foundation and the Backstage Trust, as well as donations from Alumni. The Alchemy x Unit 137 Sound System Summer Project is funded by Alchemy, Sound System Outernational / Sonic Street Technologies and the Lewisham Borough of Culture.
