Deptford Cinema. May 8, 6.45pm. Details here.
Old Tidemill Wildlife Garden and Deptford Cinema present an evening of film, discussion and debate about the future of public space in Deptford. Free entry but please book a ticket, donations towards the Garden are welcome.
Old Tidemill Wildlife Garden is Deptford's very own oasis of nature and tranquility. The garden is sited on an old primary school just to the East of Deptford High Street and is now run collectively by local resident volunteers. Free events and weekly activities are run from the space, including food growing, natural play, cooking workshops and forest schools. The garden will be open every Saturday from late March for an exciting programme of free events and workshops, for all ages to come and enjoy.
The future of the space has been thrown into uncertainty by the proposed housing development of the old Tidemill school and Reginald Road. Deptford Cinema therefore is hosting an evening of films and discussion celebrating the garden, discussing its future, and raising funds for its important community focused activities.
