What things are there to do in Lewisham that will brighten up this festive season?

Telegraph Hill Centre goes straight into your living room!

From Monday to Friday, we have a curated selection of free activities, led by our network of qualified tutors, therapists and teachers. These include lunchtime Yoga, Chi gong and Pilates; as well as a guided self-care session, helping you sort out all of the accumulated tension from sitting down, as well as some light stretching on Monday evening.

For children there is the opportunity to use some of that pent-up energy: tap, ballet and stretching classes for 5 to 10 years old, and 10 years old plus. But it’s not just the little ones who can dance their worries away: Adult Ballet and Dance expression for beginners is also available: relever, sauter and tourner to your heart’s content!

ESOL Classes will be held on Thursday, a great opportunity to learn how to speak with more confidence.

And to leave the week behind, we host a Friday evening yoga session.

To check our timetable of free activities and book a space, go to our website.

If you have any questions or for more information, please get in touch with us at enquiries@thcentre.com or call our office 020 7639 0214.

There’s Yule Log – the wacky baker getting his concoctions ready for the Great Elfish Bake Off; Baubelina the spritely decoration Elf always ready to add baubles, tinsel and fairy lights to any unsuspecting item; Nutty the Toy Elf who lives on the playground and is obsessed with toys and Carole, who runs the local bell choir.But the Elves have had their fair share of problems this year. They need *your* help to get Christmas back on track…and hopefully find Merry’s Christmas spirit along the way!

So get your hats and scarves on and join Merry and the gang for an unforgettable fun-filled afternoon adventure!
