The Little Big Peace Event

16 Sep

PeaceA dollop of world peace and culture comes to South London

This brand new little festival aims to promote world peace – from Streatham outwards. Set up and run entirely by volunteers, the event is open to everyone and includes various activities from meditation to movies. The founder, Mel Larson, says: “The little big peace event sets out to explore the culture and concept of peace in a fun, friendly and open-minded atmosphere. The event aims to draw in the local community, both as participants and event-goers. At its heart is the idea of inclusiveness and acceptance. This is peace in its widest sense – not just political but personal too”

We at EggMag think it’s going to be pretty special. Here’s our pick of events:

An actor-packed, award-winning documentary film by Jeremy Gilley, outlining his efforts to create an annual day of global ceasefire and peace. Featuring Jude Law, Annie Lennox, Angelina Jolie, The Dalai Lama to name a few, we see Gilley struggle against cynics and financial blows, but will he ultimately succeed in his quest?
Monday 19 September, 6pm at the Streatham Odeon

Try your luck at winning a nice selection of goodies (including an EggMag bag of fun) at this pub quiz. Stick around for some live music by Tara Brown, Sonja Byrne, Great Gustos, Lianne La Havas and Rún – and for a spot of performance art and poetry. Taking place on Wednesday 21 September at 6pm at The White Lion.
