Welcome Home

NOW Live Events are back at Deptford Lounge with a programme of arts and wellbeing activities for all ages. Our events stimulate the senses and lighten the mind with some of the UK’s most inspiring artists and speakers.


This year we are focusing on ‘home’; what home really means to you, how you might feel more at home in yourself, and how we can take these feelings with us everywhere we go. On offer will be activities spanning live literature, craft, poetry, visual arts, spoken word, mindfulness meditation, wellbeing events, workshops for families and children and more.


‘(NOW Live Events) rid us of the myriad modern-day distractions that stop us from embracing the fullness of the present moment… using unconventional artistic methods.’ The Independent
