Catford is a busy shopping district in south-east London, soon to be regenerated. It's named after the wildcats believed to have roamed the land in ancient times, and the enormous, sculpted figure of a cat peers down from the sign above Catford Centre, a small shopping mall. The cat is one of the area's most unusual landmarks, the other being an Oliver Barratt sculpture called The Water Line, a mass of twisty blue steel pipes located outside Eros House. More traditional is the Grade II-listed Broadway Theatre, with its green spire and exceptional art-deco interior. The Broadway presents music, drama and entertainment in its two theatres, with local and international performers, and incorporates a cinema. It also hosts CAMRA's annual Catford Beer Festival. The theatre is situated close to the main shopping area, Catford Broadway, where a popular market is open four days a week. A second market is housed indoors at the shopping centre. There are many sporting opportunities in Catford, especially at Ladywell Arena and Ladywell Fields. Mountsfield Park, with its sweeping views over London, also provides pitches and courts as well as ornamental gardens and a bandstand, and it hosts the annual Lewisham People's Day festival.
