Do you remember the Battle of Lewisham, August 1977?

On August 13, 1977, Nazi followers of the National Front (NF) tried to march through New Cross, in London.

They wanted to sow division and preached race hate. However, they were confronted, beaten and broken by anti fascist protestors. This August marks the 40th anniversary of the ‘Battle of Lewisham’.

Black filmmaker Harold Wilson was a pupil back then at South East London boys school. He’s making a documentary film about that momentous day and he would like to hear from you.

Were you there? Did you take part? Do you know friends, family or neighbours who opposed the NF? Harold would like to hear your account. If you live in the area and have stories to tell, please come forward.

Perhaps you visited the original Albany Theatre on Creek Rd before it was mysteriously set ablaze? Perhaps you had or followed a reggae sound system and went to blues parties. What was life like in those times in south east London?

Please e mail Harold; harold@uaf.org.uk

The film will be screened at  The Albany Theatre, Douglas Way, Deptford, London SE8 4AG
