Tell your Lewisham story in
We are Lewisham and Spread the Word’s
March Creative Challenge


We are Lewisham and we have a story to tell.

We’re teaming up with We Are Lewisham, London Borough of Culture 2022, for the March Creative Challenge, and we are inviting you to tell your story of Lewisham.

The Poetry Takeaway Van will be visiting locations across the borough to help tell your Lewisham story and have it transformed into a poem.

Visit the van at:

Lewisham Market: Thursday 3 March, 11.30am-3.30pm

Deptford Lounge: Saturday 19 March, 12pm-4pm as part of Deptford Literature Festival

Beckenham Place Park: Saturday 26 March, 11am-3pm

The Poetry Takeaway van serves up personalised, quality poetry to visitors, performed and wrapped to Takeaway.

We’ll also be inviting residents to write their own story to share on social media using the hashtags: #Lewisham2022 and #CreativeChallenge
