A weekly open creative space for all – with an emphasis on those going through mental illness and recovery – returns for a second year.
Founded by the Mental Fight Club, the Dragon Cafe first ran for 12 months from October 2012 with support from the Maudsley Charity and the Big Lottery Fund.
Now the Monday programme will resume for another year in the crypt of St George the Martyr Church with the backing of Guy's and St Thomas' Charity.
Open every Monday from 12 noon to 8.30pm, the Dragon Cafe provides a safe, stimulating and creative space for more than 200 people each week.
The programme includes art exhibitions, freshly prepared and reasonably priced vegetarian food, a chill-out zone and more.
Daytime groups include writing, art, tai chi, boxing, mindfulness, gardening, dancing and singing.
Evening events range from performances, creative talks and discussions, to dancing and games nights.
