Mother Goose at Telegraph Hill Centre

Oct 23, 2016 | News

The magic of Panto returns to Telegraph Hill Centre with Mother Goose!



Mother Goose rents her Brockley hovel from money-grabbing Squire Hatcham. Poor Mother Goose. She’s not young, good looking or well off. But Mother Goose is kind, loyal and a dedicated community activist. Oh yes, she is!

So when good Fairy Nuff sets out to prove cynical Demon Nick’s prediction wrong, that …


“Search all the world and you will fail to find
A man or woman with contented mind”

… Mother Goose is the ideal candidate for some unexpected good luck.

When Priscilla the (magic) Goose moves in it’s the start of a roller coaster ride of ups, downs, skulduggery (and lessons learned) for Mother Goose, her sons Jack and Billy and their friend Jill as they journey to Gooseland and the glittering court of Queen Gorbanza for the final showdown … and a fairytale ending.

Dates & Times: 8pm on Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd December; 4pm on Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th December 2017

Where: Telegraph Hill Centre, at the junction of Pepys and Kitto Road, behind St Catherine’s Church, SE14 5TY

Mother Goose is the sixth all-singing, all-dancing fundraising panto produced at the Telegraph Hill Centre. Proceeds after costs will be evenly split between Telegraph Hill Centre and New Cross Learning.


Telegraph Hill Centre is an independent Community Centre which sustains itself through the rentals it manages and an annual donation from St Catherine’s Church. The Centre provides a huge range of actiivities from (professional) acting classes to zumba and everything in-between.

Telegraph Hill Centre’s financial independence makes it unique – not vulnerable to cuts, but in constant need of ensuring its finances are secure and spaces improved so that they can sustain the Centre, and through that the Community.

New Cross Learning (formerly known as the New Cross People’s Library) is a volunteer-run space offering a library service as well as a wide range of learning activities.   It’s this community’s local library and is supported with funding from the New Cross Gate Trust.
