Description

DeptfordFolk Winter Solstice Celebration: Mulled cider, merriment and morris dancing...

Join DeptfordFolk on Saturday 17 December to celebrate Winter Solstice. The main event takes place in the afternoon at Festa Sul Prato but we've also arranged a volunteering session in the morning for those keen to work up an appetite.

9am - 1pm - Volunteer at FareShare. Tour FareShare's London depot and spend a couple of hours volunteering in their warehouse on Blackhorse Road. FareShare redistributes surplus supermarket food to shelters, youth clubs and charities across the UK - this is all masterminded from their national HQ in SE8. The capacity for this session is 25 people - please email hello@deptfordfolk.org to confirm your place. It's fun and physical - and you'll get to wear a high-vis.

1pm - 5pm - Lunch & music at Festa Sul Prato. Festive sausages and mulled cider at Festa, the lovely new cafe in Folkestone Gardens. Veggie and non-alcoholic alternatives will be available. Those who volunteer at FareShare in the morning will receive their sausages and cider for free, for all others it's just £3. The usual menu at Festa Sul Prato will also be available.

2pm - Festive songs from New Cross Choir

3pm - Dacre Morris Dancing Troupe

There will be a small fire brazier outside to keep warm whilst we watch the morris dancers throw some shapes.

We'd like to have an idea of numbers so please register on Eventbrite to let us know you're planning to attend the afternoon session.

Please email hello@deptfordfolk.org separately if you'd like to take part in the volunteering at FareShare.

If you can't make it along to either part of the day please feel free to head down to Festa in the evening. Their licence has recently been extended until 10pm so the DeptfordFolk crew will be around into the evening. All are welcome!
