Christmas on Telegraph Hill

Various seasonal events coming up at and around the Telegraph Hill Centre (next to Saint Catherine's Church at junction of Pepys and Kitto Road, SE14).

On 15 December there is a Ukulele Carol Jam, a chance to strum/singalong to Christmas Carols. Beginners welcome as there will be instruction in simple chords, and even some spare ukes for those that need them. Families and Children 3.30- 5pm, Adults 7.30pm. More info from

Guess it will be this kind of thing (though this is from Australia):

On 22nd December there willl be a Winter Solstice 'Night of the Beast Parade': ''Everyone is invited to dress as an animal, wear a beasty headdress or mask, or hold an animalistic sculpture, bring a cuddly toy or walk your pet dogs or polecats, and bring your lanterns and your musical instruments. Meet at the Telegraph pub at 5pm, a cheer at 5.30 pm at the moment of the turning of the year, then set off for an illuminated musical parade around the streets, ending at the Hill Station for wassailing, eating and drinking...To make sure lots of amazing animals will show up, artists are invited to gather and show people how to create masks, headdresses, furry costumes, beasty lanterns, or other wondrous creations. Feel free to drop in to this workshop. This will be 11.30-4.00 on 17th December in the Art Room (behind the Narthex) in the Telegraph Hill community centre'. For more information, contact

In the New Year, on 6th, 7th and 8th January there will be Jack and the Beanstalk Panto in the Centre: 'Thrill to the gripping story of a community fighting back against cuts to the community centre’s budget. Kindly Dame Trott and her trusty Jack are aided by pretty Penny, Dozy Den, Dame Dollie and Daisy the faithful cow in a brave fight against Giant Pickles' axing of the community budget'. Details including tickets at Bold Vision.
