What we do
There’s so much going on at St. Margaret’s House that people often don’t realise all of what’s available. Here are some ways for you to get involved:
A diverse programme of cultural events
There’s always something interesting to see or do at St. Margaret’s House. We host a wide variety of events throughout the year, including regular art exhibitions, film screenings, music gigs, spoken word nights, and comedy performances as well as special one-off festivals. Check out our event listings to find out what’s going on this month.
Workshops in arts & crafts
At The Create Place you can drop-in for free weekly sessions, which are open to everyone no matter your skill level. They’re the perfect place to meet fellow crafters while working on a project or learning a new skill and enjoying a cuppa. Or check out our calendar, as there are lots of one-off workshops and in-depth courses offered each month. And if you’ve got a skill to teach, we’re always looking for new workshop facilitators.
Vegan & vegetarian food
At The Gallery Café we offer a delicious selection of vegan and vegetarian food, an exciting program of live events, and a new art exhibition from an up-and-coming artist every month. Almost of our dishes are available as a vegan option and we're committed to making delicious food that proves that a vegan diet doesn't mean missing out on your favourite dishes.
Low-cost yoga, fitness and dance classes
East London Community Wellbeing is our newest project. We provide low-cost yoga, pilates, fitness, and dance classes for the community in Bethnal Green. We offer classes in our hall and The YogaNest studio at 27 Old Ford Road.
Low cost office space & room hire
At St. Margaret’s House we are home to more than 30 different community organisations and charities – you can learn about them all here. If you are a community or not-for-profit organisation operating in Tower Hamlets, we offer various room hire facilities at low rates, as well as subsidised office spaces to rent. For more information e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The work done by St. Margaret’s House would not be possible without the incredible support of our volunteers. We’re always in need of helping hands; whether it’s helping out at our charity shop or facilitating a workshop at The Create Place, there are plenty of ways to get stuck in. If you would like to volunteer with us, whether for a one-off opportunity or on an ongoing basis, please e-mail email@example.com to learn about all of the availableopportunities.
