One Tree Hill Festival

St Augustine’s is very excited to be launching the first One Tree Hill Festival. They hope this will be an annual event as a way of gathering together local creativity in SE23. They’ve joined forces with lots of local artists, musicians and organisations to bring you a really fantastic line up. Download the full programme here
