Bombed during World War II, St George’s Garrison Church survives as an evocative ruin with recently conserved mosaics, and a modern canopy roof, now available for all to enjoy.


Teddy Bear’s Picnic Sat 17th July 11 am - 3 pm

Aimed at children aged 2 - 6 years with free entry we were delighted to have the Arts Council supported Rah Rah Theatre's Teddy Bear Picnic show, followed by an effervescent (!) performance by Maxwell the Bubbleologist who later also ran a bubble workshop.

Parents and children brought their favourite bear or other figures (and some food!) Rah Rah produced props, puppets, well known songs and dance - plus educational numbers dealing with colours and shapes. 

AND - was there a bubbleologist in the house?! Oh yes! Small bubbles? Tick! Large bubbles? Tick! Many many bubbles of all sizes and shapes? Tick!

We are grateful to the Armed Forces Covenant Fund for making this day possible.

St George's Garrison Church in Woolwich, with its modern canopy roof and stunning mosaics, is both an evocative ruin and a contemporary space. Designed by Thomas H Wyatt in an Italian-Romanesque style, the Church was built between 1862-63 to serve the Royal Artillery in Woolwich. Today it is run by a local group, the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust who are committed to making it available for all to visit and enjoy. Directly opposite the Barracks in Woolwich, South East London, come and enjoy its beauty and peaceful garden.
