The festival builds and sustains a strong sense of community by ensuring that all members of our community are involved in and engaged by the festival. Telegraph Hill Festival is run on a voluntary basis. No one involved with the Festival is paid.  

We’re so grateful to all the people and places who work with us to accommodate so many events and put up with having their own activities disrupted.

St Catherine’s Church, Hatcham and Telegraph Hill Centre are the primary sponsors of Telegraph Hill Festival, giving us space free of charge well ahead of the Festival, foregoing rental income as we rehearse in their spaces, and going the extra mile to accommodate us. Their generosity is extraordinary. We couldn’t do it without them.

Goldsmiths has also been a generous supporter, working with us on the graphic design of the programme each year. 

Thank you to everyone who helps Telegraph Hill Festival happen.

Telegraph Hill Festival is 25 years old in 2019 and runs from 30th March to 14th April, featuring visual and performance art, comedy, theatre, music, spoken word, literature, film and much more. More than 90 free events, many in the Spring holidays, mean there is something for everyone. Come.
