Go Hither

Kate writes:

Come Hither is an all-day charity event of arts, crafts, theatre and music giving residents a taste of Brazil will take place at St Swithun’s Hall in Hither Green on Saturday, June 22.

Called ‘Come Hither’, the event consists of an art and crafts fair from 2pm until 6pm at the hall in St Swithun’s Road and includes a mask making workshop for children aged three years and over. Delicious cakes, refreshments and a special taste of Brazil will be available and entrance is free.

In the evening, from 8pm until 10.30pm, there will be special performances from Foreign Affairs Theatre Company and music by the Bob Constant and the Goodbye Horses and much more. Tickets are £5.

The event will raise money for the Charlotte Miller Art Project, a UK-based charity working with NGOs in Latin America to bring the arts to disadvantaged children and young people.

Organiser Sara Santos says: “In October, I will be travelling to Brazil as a volunteer arts educator to work with street children in Eldorado favela outside the city of Sao Paulo. I am raising money to fund my expenses for the six month placement.

“Come and enjoy a little taste of Brazil in the heart of Lewisham and help raise money for a fantastic cause!”
