February saw Team Catford host Young and Vocal, Catford’s first ever night dedicated to celebrating and encouraging Catford’s next generation of creative minds. Attended by over 100 keen creatives from across South London, the evening took place in a vacant unit in Catford Shopping Centre and gave guests the opportunity to enjoy exciting live performances, admire striking artwork and rub shoulders with like-minded individuals. Take a look at our video to see how the evening unfolded and watch this space for more exciting events from Team Catford.
