Learn and play with friends old and new

Spending time together for informal learning connects people and builds healthy communities. It breaks down barriers, creating common ground and new friendships. We believe that learning is important for all ages, whether it’s something new that you’re curious about, or something that you’ve always enjoyed.

Time & Talents offers a broad range of informal, creative, wellbeing-focused and social activities, open to all adults. You can drop in and take part any time, and no experience or special knowledge is necessary for any of our groups. When possible, we also run parties and community events for all ages throughout the year. Check our calendar and local noticeboards to find out when the next one is happening!

Something for everyone

There’s so much to get involved with, so why not come and have a go? If you fancy trying a spot of Tai Chi, are tempted to try out yoga, now’s the time. Or why not get your hands a bit dirty in our beautiful gardens with the Green Team? Get to know your neighbours and connect with your local area too!

If English is a barrier for you, we have a group where speakers of English as a second language can support each other to learn English language skills and make socialising easier. 

We’re open to trying new stuff too – is there something you’d like to see here? Get in touch and let us know! We’re always interested in hearing from local people with ideas about things they would like to deliver in our centres.

Some of our activities come with a low fee but, if you’re experiencing financial hardship, we offer ‘Freebie’ places so that you can access all T&T-delivered activities free of charge. Just get in touch to find out more: either email info@timeandtalents.org.uk or call us on 0207 231 7845.

There’s more!

If you’re over 55, you can also attend a whole range of activities in our older adults’ programme (even if you don’t feel old!).

And if you have kids, we offer lots of fun activities for children and families.
