Peabody in the news

More than 500 residents attend a festival of light, community and energy.

Held last Saturday opposite The Link Thamesmead, The Light Fantastic was the climax of our summer consultation programme in Thamesmead.

Residents enjoyed a range of musical, dance and light-based entertainment including a performance by Dynamix. The vibrant Thamesmead-based street dance troupe wowed the crowd with their moves.

Let's dance: Dynamix is open to children aged 5–15

“This event has been brilliant and is a great way of bringing the community together,” said Michelle Payne, a Thamesmead resident.

Ellen Halstead, Peabody's Engagement and Programme Manager, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people celebrate Thamesmead.” 


Thanks to everyone at the event who gave us their views on our Thamesmead redevelopment plans. Your contributions will help form our Thamesmead Futures Plan, to be published in 2015.
