Please do come along to meet your neighbours and have fun (in the sun?!) at the Albert Square Big Lunch followed by Big Party on Saturday  1 June. Organised by the ASSA  Residents’ Association, the day will be a great opportunity to enhance our neighbourhood, create new connections and have some fun in the lovely relaxed surroundings of the Albert Square gardens.

Big Lunch

Starting from 1pm, the square will be open for local residents to come and bring food for themselves, their family and friends, and maybe to share with their neighbours. There will be fun and games for children in the safe surroundings of the garden. If you can come along beforehand to help set up marquees, bunting, blow up balloons, put up  tables and organise games for children that will be a great help. We will provide some basic staples (like bread and salad) so please do let us know in advance if you are coming so that we can order these.

Big Band Party

After we’ve cleared away from lunch, we will be setting up in the evening for the Big Band Party. This will be a paid-for (but low-cost) event where the Lewisham Wind Band will perform hits from the classics and other great favourites with their usual gusto and verve. Bring along your picnic and refreshments, or buy a burger from our BBQ. Doors will open from 6pm, and the Band will perform from 7.30pm. The party will end at 10pm.

Tickets costs £5 or £3 for concessions (children are free) and can be bought in advance or on the door.
