Banjo on the Banjo is a musical performance event located on various banjos across Dagenham’s Becontree Estate culminating in Parsloes Park, as part of Living Together.

This event marks the 100 year anniversary of the Addison Act (31 July 1919); which gave London County Council powers to build council housing beyond London, signalling the birth of Becontree.

Join us to see resident and experienced banjo players, performing a new composition for Becontree.

Free. No booking necessary.

Living Together is a new project by artist Verity-Jane Keefe in partnership with Create London and London Borough of Barking and Dagenham. Living Together will develop over 2019, leading to a larger scale programme celebrating the centenary of Dagenham’s Becontree Estate in 2021. It will look at the past 100 years of social housing through the lens of Becontree, once the largest social housing estate in the world; looking at the past, the present and into the future.
