15, 000 capacity per day

On Blackheath is a music, arts and food festival, organised in association with John Lewis. It offers the chance to escape from the bustle of the city, but you really don't have to venture far out of the capital! Offering a world class lineup of music, top chefs and fun for kids of all ages, On Blackheath has already been nominated for no less than two festival awards: Best New Festival and Best Lineup.

As well as the music, there is the John Lewis Food Village which has a programme of great chefs such as internationally renowned Theo Randall. The chef's stage will have live demonstrations and there is also a cookery school with free cooking lessons throughout the day.

For kids, there is storytelling, a talking maze and a village green sports day.

What we love about this festival.

The food! The John Lewis Food Village will showcase some world class food at this year's festival. The lineup this year is also amazing.
