Over 50s

Enjoy contemporary dance? Always wanted to try yoga or learn to paint? We have lots of activities to keep you connected and well, including sessions at our community gym. 

We offer a range of activities for Over 50s, whether you’re looking to get involved with the community, keep fit or learn a new skill. Our sessions are accessible and affordable, and an opportunity to meet new people. Our community classes are free or £2/3. Our programme prioritises people living in North Lambeth and North Southwark at £2/£3. We offer limited classes at £5 for visitors.

“I have lived at Bankside for 30 years. I’d often walk past Coin Street neighbourhood centre but never went inside. I heard about the Over 50s art group from a friend and I have now been attending for four years. It is friendly and informal, has a wide and varied programme, and extremely helpful art tutors. We also go on day trips to art galleries and I have been lucky to see many major art exhibitions in London. Last summer we even visited the Turner Contemporary Gallery in Margate.”
