Social Lunch

These activities have been put on hold due to COVID-19 and our commitment to keep our participants safe. We have moved Social Lunch online and it is now called Lockdown Lunch.

Social Lunch was an afternoon of good food and great fun for the over 55s.

On the last Thursday of every month, we held our legendary Social Lunch at Jacksons Lane. This event welcomed up to 30 people over 55 from across North London to enjoy a two course meal, tons of fun company and engagement with the arts.

The two course meal was provided by our in-house Pink Food Café and every month we worked hard to provide as much entertainment as we could muster up.

We welcomed West End singers from shows such as The Lion King and Cats, dancers from Birmingham Royal Ballet, opera singers such as Enas Massalha and even TV personalities such as Carolyn Pickles from ITV’s Broadchurch.

One of the most celebrated aspects of Social Lunch was when our guests performed themselves. Anyone could perform any act they wished, and this brought joy and an explosion of varied talent to the space. Bands that formed in the 1970s were reunited and long-time poets found a stage. Things used to get quite lively on a Thursday at Jacksons Lane!
