Dalston HCT (1)

Children aged 7-12 who like singing and dancing, and young people aged 13-16 years who are interested in getting involved behind the scenes of theatre have the opportunity to perform with professionals from Hackney Children’s Theatre and make a show in a week! The week will culminate with a family variety show taking place at the Garden on Saturday 30 July.

Registration and booking is essential as spaces are limited. For more details go to Hackney Children’s Theatre 

Every Saturday, 2-5pm

Saturday afternoon gardening sessions for volunteers take place every week at the Garden. If you’d like to help look after the plants at the Curve Garden, try growing herbs and vegetables, learn new skills or get healthy working outdoors, come on a Saturday and just join in.

If you can complete our online volunteer form in advance, that helps us know to expect you.

Then just come along wearing comfortable shoes and clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

As always, everyone is welcome – the more the merrier!
