The surgery is held in the relaxed atmosphere of the Albany café, every other Wednesday afternoon between 16:00 – 17:30. No pre-booking necessary.

The Hunters Grimm

The famous Brothers Grimm need your help. They need stories, more stories than they can gather themselves. You must search the dark streets of Deptford for new tales where you may come across an anarchic frog, comfort a desperate prince, dance with the musicians of Bremen and participate in an adventure to cure nightmares. Along the way, you’ll hear stories of love, death, poverty, longing and sausages.
