Lewisham's old model market is about to be transformed with street food, drinks and music.

Street Feast is moving into the disused Lewisham High Street venue for 15 weekend evenings over the summer, starting in June this year.

In a statement, the group, which runs similar events in trendy Dalston and has transformed car parks, breweries, warehouses and old tube stations into venues, said: "We’ll be breathing new life, light and vibes into the space with everything you’d expect - fantastic street food, cracking drinks, great music and our usual wonderful crowd."

They went on: "At Model Market, you will find Breddos, Rola Wala, SmokeStak, Yum Bun and many more of your favourite and soon-to-be favourite street food traders in their own, undercover micro-diners. Eat-in or eat-out in the open air yard.

"There’ll also be a wood panelled shack lined with rum, shandies poured from a former hair salon, slow smoked barbecue in an old record shop and a (not-so) secret rooftop suntrap. The original calypso paintjob stays."

A launch party is sheduled for June. Visit streetfeastlondon.com for details.

Problem is, however nice the food might be, it's still in Lewisham which means I won't be going there to sample the delights of the place!

The sham.........Not an appetising place to shop let alone venture there for the delights of no doubt, even more multicultural obnoxious fumes and punch ups. No thanks. No matter how hard they try....The sham has had its day.

Why don't you just go and check it out before releasing your own toxic venom against anyone who isn't a little Englander.

You may have a good time, meet some new and interesting people and change your views.

Don't mind the sham personally. Used to live there and never had any problems and the increase in house prices over the years put a few quid in me pocket and outperformed pals in other more 'attractive' areas of London.

Good luck with this venture in Lewisham, Street Feast, hope it works well, passes without incident and becomes popular and successful. Some of the morons on here wouldn't have the minerals to try and do something like this, they just type and troll hoping you fail so they can say 'I told you so, bad lot that Lewisham bunch'. They complain about folk taking bennies but then cant find a word of encouragement for enterprise. As I said, morons, ignore and best of luck.

I too have had the misfortune to live in the sham, hence my comment, and no, not a little englander as you labeled, just one of life's experiences from living in that area.

SLB, it's sad that 'just one of life's experiences from living in that area' has made you so bitter towards the sham and its people.

Before I moved to the sham I lived in Herne Hill, there I came home to find two burglars still in my house one holding a knife. As bad as the experience was it didn't put me off Herne Hill or the locals. Made me buy a burglar alarm and better locks and put it down to 'just one of life's experiences' and could happen anywhere. Pleased to say nothing like that ever happened in the sham.
