Come on a journey with Lewisham Music as we explore the stories and sounds of Bellingham over the last 100 years.


As part of Bellingham’s centenary celebration, we’ll be sharing a new podcast series celebrating local people’s stories and memories of Bellingham, and resident’s stories will be reimagined by local young musicians through the creation of new music.


We’re looking for photographs, objects, and personal stories capturing life in Bellingham for a new project celebrating Bellingham at 100. We’ll be holding several ‘show & tell’ sessions during May/June where you can share photographs, stories, and memories to help tell the story of Bellingham over the decades.


How to get involved?

Option 1: To sign up and share your story, please send your name, contact number and a short sentence about the memories and stories you want to share to The ‘show & tell’ sessions will take place in our podcast suite here at The Fellowship Inn, at a range of times across May/June.


Option 2: Why not dig out the albums and share your photos of Bellingham throughout the years, email your photos to or via WhatsApp on 07588 036 004.


The stories, photos and objects collated from the call out will inspire local young musicians to reimagine these memories through the creation of original music.


The free exhibition will tour from June until December 2023 and celebrates a century of the Bellingham estate from 1923 to 2023. The project will chronicle the lives and changes within the community, their stories, sounds and memories.










Community Programme Producer, Josh Oladipo comments…


“This is a chance to share your story or memories and see these stories reimagined through music – what do you remember?”

“Championing the community within Bellingham will be a fitting way to celebrate the centenary in 2023.”

“Tell your story and be a part of this exciting ongoing exploration of Bellingham.”
