What are the people who live in your area really like? Whatâ€™s important to them, and what are their fears? What might you find out about yourself by talking openly to someone youâ€™ve never met before?
Weâ€™re encouraging Lewisham residents to find out by coming to the Big Conversation on Wednesday 8 August at 7pm in the theatrical Spiegeltent at the Lewisham Big Screen on Blackheath.
The format is very simple â€“ itâ€™s a conversation over dinner. Guests sit with someone theyâ€™ve never met and are served a simple meal along with a â€˜menu of conversation.â€™ The menu offers a choice of questions designed to help them open up and think about their life in new ways. The questions will be based on the Olympic and Paralympic values.
This is a free event and open to anyone aged over 14. Seats will be allocated on the day, so itâ€™s best to arrive early. Guests can bring friends along, but should remember that they will be seated with someone they donâ€™t know.
