Meet Me is an award-winning programme of creative and social activities, where older people in Lewisham can make friends, enjoy their favourite activities and learn new crafts.

The programme was created by the Albany and Entelechy Arts in
partnership with Lewisham Council. It is curated by formerly isolated older people living in Lewisham.

Since March we haven’t been able to meet in person, so join us from the comfort of your living room for one of our free telephone cluster groups.

Knitting and Crochet

Bring knitting, crochet or any stitching you fancy, and join in for a chat. It’s handy if you have loudspeaker on your phone for this one so that your hands are free to create!
When: Wednesday afternoons


Come prepared with your favourite songs if you fancy singing down the phone! This group is led by professional musicians who will join you in
singing your musical favourites.
When: Tuesday mornings


Each week can be different with the making group, and it’s for anyone who is feeling crafty and creative (or even those who aren’t!). We provide the materials. Using loudspeaker on your phone is helpful for this group.
When: Tuesday afternoons

Movies at Home

People who love movies will be a fan of this group. Picking a film to watch on normal TV, we will learn about the film and discuss our thoughts in a group phone call.
When: Monthly


Join spoken word poets in an over-the-phone experiment with words. For all poetry lovers or anyone who wants to give it a go.
When: Weekly starting in January

Meet Me on the Radio

Listen to our weekly show on Resonance FM, hosted by Meet Me at the Albany members Ros and Ron. If you miss it, no problem, you can
catch up here.
When: Tuesdays 11.30 and Thursdays 5pm
Where: 104.4 FM;


All you need to join these groups is to be over 65, living in Lewisham, and have access to a telephone (mobile or landline). All cluster calls are free – we ring you when you take part. We welcome people who are living with long-term health conditions or dementia. Please let us know if you have any access requirements or there is anything we can do to help you take part.
