Burgess Park Zeppelin 1917 events

Friends of Burgess Park are holding a series of events on Saturdays throughout October on the centenary of the WWI Zeppelin raid. With talks, walks, family events, music and theatre we’re exploring the lives of people in the local area and discovering hidden heroes.

Exhibition – Put together by a platoon of volunteer researchers during August and September, this features a timeline of the raid and lives of local families during the war based on new research. A model Zeppelin made by local artist Keith Roberts will be on display.

Open each Saturday from 7th October, from 1 to 5.30pm, and Thursday 26th / Friday 27th / October. Entrance – free – no booking required!

Fun Palaces – interactive science and arts for all the family, which is Free, Local, Innovative, Transformative and Engaging! Saturday 7th October, 1-3pm. Please register for this on Eventbrite. Have a go at making an airship or rocket or invent your own new machine.

The Silent Raid – A talk by Zeppelin expert Ian Castle, a specialist on Germany’s Zeppelin raids on Britain and published author on the subject. This talk for FOBP ‘Zeppelin 1917’ will explore in detail the raid of 19th October 1917, the last great Zeppelin raid of the war, and will highlight its significance to South London where a single bomb on Camberwell had a devastating impact on the local community. Saturday 7th October, at 4pm. Please book for this on Eventbrite

More details about events later in the month are on our website.
