Panto time!

With summer’s last gasp still here, it’s hard to believe that we’ve started to think about Panto. But we must, oh yes we must.

  • Auditions for adult roles will take place on Tuesday 16th September at 7.30pm at Telegraph Hill Centre.   You must be over 16 to audition.   Rehearsals take place twice a week though there may be some extra rehearsals closer to performance time.   Performances will take place on 5th, 6th and 7th of December (with two shows on Saturday 6th). It’s quite a commitment, but it’s never boring.
  • Children’s roles and Chorus – anyone cast for these roles will become involved in early November once the Panto has taken shape and we will be in touch with those people who have already contacted us regarding this with a schedule laying out the time commitment and a proposed rota for discussion with parents/carers.

Panto is always a collaborative exercise, and this year is no exception.   We have a great team on board with a great script and are very grateful to Telegraph Hill Centre and St Catherine’s Church for their help in putting this show on. 

  • We will need help putting on this show: Props, costumes, front of house, stage management, make up, set building, lighting, ushering … you name it, we have a need for it!  If you’d like to help out, please email Sanjit with details of what you can help with.

Funds from this year’s Panto will go towards Telegraph Hill Centre – a long standing champion of this community.   Find out more about Telegraph Hill Centre, what it does, how it is funded.

If you’d like to know what this year’s Panto will be – hold on to your hat …. all will be revealed in the next few weeks!

Food Assembly

Food assembly is an innovative and startlingly simple idea – a local organiser gets local food producers together and provides a space to trade from, thereby enabling traders to access markets and consumers to get good locally produced food with the organiser keeping a small proportion of the turnover.   The Ivy House are hosting our local Food Assembly on Sunday 7th September from 10am to 1pm.   Pop along.

Telegraph Hill Centre: What’s on and why

Here is our programme of classes, many of which will re-commence from September 2014.   If you’d like to join any of these classes please contact the tutors directly.   Some tutors tell us that spaces are already starting to go – so get in touch with them sooner than later: download the programme.

About Telegraph Hill Centre

Telegraph Hill Centre is not funded by local authority grants.

Telegraph Hill Centre derives its income from letting out the Centre’s main spaces (for activites listed in the programme for example) and through a very kind annual donation from St Catherine’s Church. By sustaining itself this way, the Centre is able to offer additional services free at the point of use for people in need or excluded from mainstream society. The Centre has been doing this for 40 years. Examples of services include:

  • Services for people who have experienced homelessness
  • Services for people recovering from drug or alcohol abuse
  • Services for isolated elders
  • Services for Youth living in and around the area, specialising in counselling and support
  • Support for pre-school (under 5s) children and their parents (Telegraph Hill Playclub) to tackle isolation and provide support for both parents and children

In addition, Telegraph Hill Centre and St Catherine’s Church have sponsored and supported Telegraph Hill Festival and Hill Station since their inception.

If you’d like to hep us please donate towards the work we do, ask us for more information or get involved.
