Bags of Love

As part of a wider project, involving local children and charities to explore, create and connect within the community, the ‘Bags of Love’ workshops at Telegraph Hill Centre will facilitate the encounter of Syrian refugee children with local children. During the workshops, the children will explore common ground and will be guided into the process of creative making by decorating picture frames where to treasure an image of a loved memory or person. After meeting the refugee children and their families at the centre of the Lewisham Scheme for Syrian Refugee Families, to ask how the community could help, their feedback was that the best ‘gift’ was time spent together, to make friends and share. 

Please arrive on time. If children wish to attend more than one session, they’re welcome!

50 Ways to Lose Your Liver

The “Funny Women Best Show Award” nominees return to the Telegraph Hill Festival with their brand new show. Join them as they spread their bingo wings to rise above the muffin top and orange peel of middle age. Freyja Westdal and Beth Hayward; 2 women, 1 Piano and a world of barely contained exasperation, proud residents of South London and as such members of the militant wing of the Liberal Metropolitan Elite. They’ve got 99 problems but 98 of them can be attributed to poor time keeping and a lack of self-control. Westdal and Hayward have performed at comedy venues and festivals and recently supported singer-songwriter Dean Freidman on his UK tour. They have also been commissioned to write song lyrics for the fabulous 4 poofs and a Piano. Come and see how the mayhem ensues. “Wry sharp comedy cabaret, with some singing and bit of smut!”
