BEGINNINGS puppet show + meal, a Draper Together Family Sunday!




The eagerly-awaited new Draper Together Family Sunday is here: yet another fantastic live show for all ages followed by a hot meal all included in the entrance ticket! Join us and tell all your friends.

This month we present you the rather wonderful BEGINNINGS, a deliciously "disgusting" show for children and families! Influenced by Punch and Judy and slapstick ridiculousness, "Beginnings" tells the story of a wrinkly old man as he creates a world from everyday objects accompanied by a fantastically expressive drum kit.

Its writer and performer, Helen Ainsworth, is an internationally renowned puppeteer who has worked in, amongst other countries, Great Britain, India and Portugal.

The show will be followed by a hot meal which has always a vegan alternative. You and your children will be looked after, fed and entertained, with no cooking or washing up to do afterwards.

Our kitchen has been awarded a 5 Stars Hygiene rating by Southwark Council.

Been to events at Draper Hall a few times, both inside and at the very large private patio area outside. Such a nice place, friendly people running it, and quite literally 5 minutes from a major transport hub - trains, tube and buses.
It's just been renovated and it's even better than before. Full disabled access and facilties, all on the ground floor. You really can't find anything this good in central London. (5 stars YELL customer review)

I performed Brite Theater's Richard III (A one-woman show) at Draper Hall. It is an excellent space run by wonderful people. Highly recommended (Emily Carding)

Draper Hall is an new venue, in the heart of Elephant & Castle with the kindest staff that make you feel incredibly welcome.... the entire organisation and execution of the event was exceptionally done. (Everything Theatre)
