OnBlackheath takes over the vast stretch of greenery on the outskirts of Greenwich, with big names and a farmers’ market on the menu.
Urban festivals have sprung up all over the country, and one of the newest is OnBlackheath, which promises a diverse mix of music with artisanal food and drink (it’s run in partnership with John Lewis) on one of the capital’s most unspoiled patches of greenery.
As if all that weren’t civilised enough, there’s fringe theatre and entertainment on show, along with live cooking demos from top chefs and even a farmers’ market.
For a grown up festival, there’s a suitable tasteful lineup, with big name acts including Massive Attack, Frank Turner, Aloe Blacc and Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard. Elsewhere, check out upstart Canadian jazz trio BadBadNotGood and Melbourne’s much vaunted Hiatus Kaiyote.
Blackheath station is small and not exactly Waterloo, so consider heading to Greenwich instead and taking a walk through scenic Greenwich Park en route.
