This Saturday (December 18) is your last chance to meet Santa at Castle Square in Elephant and Castle.
Santa and his elfin sidekick will be at the Christmas tree in the square from 12-4pm, as they have been every Saturday this month.
There have also been weekly English sessions, the Upside Down Street Dance Club for Kids and Teens, all to the backdrop of beautiful Christmas lights and decorations.
The lighting of the Castle Square Christmas tree saw the Elephant and Castle Community Hub choir singing “The Twelve Days of Castle Square”, based on Castle Square and Ash Avenue businesses.
A group of local artists also created a version of the Christmas Carol story, set in Elephant and Castle with characters that represent the diversity of the area.
Each Saturday this month has seen the square adorned with “Instagrammable” Christmas grottos for the perfect holiday picture..
Every Wednesday from 7 – 8pm the Elephant and Castle Community hub have been offering weekly English lessons, focusing on conversation. Suitable for learners at a near beginner level, the classes aim to be fun and interactive with lots of practice.
For those wanting to find calm during their busy week, Monday Mindfulness has been available to all to join every Monday morning online from 10am to 12pm. Every Thursday at 11am, Re-Tribe have also been running self-care workshops over Zoom so people can connect with themselves and each other.
The full list of events can be found on the Castle Square website.
