The party     We open our doors from 11am on Christmas Day, providing entertainment and tea, to help everyone get in the festive mood! Christmas dinner is served from 1pm, and the entertainment continues after the meal.

Location
The party is held in the large Sports Hall at Bacon’s College, Timber Pond Road, Rotherhithe, SE16 6AT. (left hand side of Rotherhithe Tunnel entrance if driving) Click here for a link to Google Maps or see Bacon College website’s How to Find us page.

Guest transport
We provide free transport to and from the venue for any guests living in the London Borough of Southwark. We use minibuses, including those designed for wheel chairs and passengers with disabilities. Volunteers also make pickups and drops-offs in their cars for people who are able to travel easily this way.(Note: There is no public transport on Christmas Day) Please note: we do need plenty of notice if you require transport. The deadline for booking is 16th December. You’re most welcome to turn up on the day if you live locally or can arrange your own transport, however booking is advised so that we can guarantee you a place.

  Christmas Dinner
The majority of our guests enjoy traditional turkey with all the trimmings, or lamb as an alternative. This is followed with traditional Christmas pudding or fruit. If you prefer there are vegetarian, Caribbean, Asian, diabetic or liquidised alternatives. We also provide a small glass of port, together with Stilton and biscuits to round off the meal. When leaving, everyone is offered a light tea in a take away box and a grocery voucher so they can choose something to have in the next few days.

Entertainment
There’s a free raffle on the day with lots of prizes, big and small. We have an entertainer booked - and you may well find yourself singing or even dancing along to some old favourites!

Facilities and Assistance
We welcome guests in wheelchairs - Bacon’s College has disability-friendly facilities. Assistance from volunteers is on hand. We also hire an experienced agency carer who is fully trained in manual handling and personal care. If you live in Southwark, you can book your place by filling out the booking form or calling 0203 355 2619
