I moustache you a question.
Why all the moustaches?

To tell people the story about Burgess Park’s development from a built-up area that over 60 years has been transformed into the park. And the moustaches are for the heavily moustachioed and bearded characters from the past. And FUN for people when trying out our historical cutout characters. The moustaches and the characters first appeared at the May Fair where our project was launched.

On Sunday Peckham Theatre came to visit Burgess Park for a fundraising walk.
