Hill Thinking

In September we organised a meeting with people from Bold Vision, Telegraph Hill Centre, Telegraph Hill Festival, PCC 

and the Hill Station to explore what (if any) should be the ongoing  role for Bold Vision.

Attached are some of the key points that came up during that meeting. Envisioning meeting 1309

We’d love to hear your thoughts on this or any other suggestions you have. Please add a comment here or email boldvisionmail@gmail.com

Panto time!

Our handsome hero wins the hand in marriage of a petulant Princess.   But that’s not the only story in our production of Puss in Boots.   There’s a lot else to thrill and bamboozle as unhinged shenanigans abound featuring preening Pusses, odious Ogres, Dames in distress, morose Monarchs, wily Wizards, flatulent Fairies and much more.

Our story was written by a local writer, is set in and around our part of South East London and draws a talented cast from the community.   All proceeds of this rambunctious panto go to good causes – Telegraph Hill Centre and Bold Vision.

See Puss in Boots at 7.30pm on 5 / 6 / 7 Dec, with an additional matinee on Sat 7 Dec at 3.30pm.   Tickets are £12 / £6.   There will be tea, cakes and a bar too, so come on down.

Panto time! Auditions Sep 12

Please spread the word, it’s Panto time again.   We’ve been hard at it, polishing puns, winkling in innuendo, and generally working up a lather . . . we think we’ve finally got it just right.   Now it’s the turn of lots of lovely people to make it come alive.   12th Sept, 7pm in the craft room at the Telegraph Hill Centre.

More details here

Please spread the word far and wide – this year, the Panto is a fundraiser for Telegraph Hill Centre and Bold Vision.

Bike Store?

If you live in a flat or just don’t have room to store a bike you use regularly, this might be for you.   Cyclehoop, a firm specialising in creating cycling infrastructure for cities, are looking for locations in Lewisham to install secure bike parking for people who can’t squeeze a bike in their hallway.
