Chinese New Year in Deptford + Deptford High Street Song
Chinese New Year was marked in Deptford in Saturday with a lion dance procession from the Deptford Lounge to the Albany, where the Yam, Yam! East and South East Asian Arts and Food Festival is now on until March 15th.
There was a classic Deptford Market moment where the lion got in a face off with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier which took offence to the lion being up in his grill.
Reverend Casy - Deptford High Street
Meanwhile Reverend Casy have written a song celebrating Deptford High Street, with a film to match. There's an interview with Chris Boddington from the band at Deptford High Street. Chris is helping put on a gig this Friday 7th February at his own Cafe Crema (306 New Cross Road). It's a Syria benefit for MSF/Doctors without Borders, with Americana & Bluegrass from Union Electric + The Union Canal String Band. 8pm. £5
