Hornbeam Activities

Regular Activities at the Hornbeam, E17

As well as coming to the cafe from Tuesday to Sunday, there are many reasons to come to the Hornbeam regularly.

Community Mondays | Hornbeam Nights | Jamming | Film Night | Fresh Produce Stall |Supper Club

Community Mondays: one-off, drop-in opportunities – we help maintain the space together, pick up some skills and have some lunch too.

People’s Kitchen is on the first Monday of every month when we make an amazing lunch for anyone who wants to come from donated food that would otherwise be wasted. Every Monday, 10am -2pm.  Check Get Involved and Events pages for up to date information.

Hornbeam Nights:  Hornbeam Nights every Thursday are going from strength to strength and we’re loving having such a range of music transform our cafe into a buzzing evening music venue. Join us!

Organiclea’s Jamming Sessions, every Monday 10.30am – 1.30pm.  Learning and sharing skills in preserving.  See Get involved for more info.

Film Night: On the last Thursday of the month, a film around any subject that helps us think about the way we produce our food, or build communities, or live sustainable lives.  Do you have a film you’d like to show? A group that wants to show a film?  Want to help?  Get in touch.

OrganicLea’s Market Stall,  every Saturday 10am – 3pm.  Located right outside the Hornbeam Centre on Saturdays, the market stall sells organic and ultra-local sustainably grown fruit and vegetables, plus homemade bread, jams and preserves. Healthy Start vouchers can be used to buy fruit and vegetables at the stalls or box scheme. Another stall in Leytonstone outside Matalan, more details through Organiclea.

‘Fork to Fork’ Seasonal Supper Club: We hold occasional Supper Clubs every few months –  check with us if you can’t find if there’s one in the month you’re interested in.  A three course feast with delicious healthy tasty food – locally sown, grown, picked and cooked! And you can often get involved in training sessions to learn how to cook for a group in a cafe environment if you want to. Or just come and eat on the night!

NOTE: March’s Supper Club is a Refugee Supper Club!
We are looking for volunteers who are refugees (no matter what immigration status) to work towards a supper in April.

Come and build skills and networks at The Hornbeam – meet one evening a week for 8 weeks from end January to March 2017 at the Hornbeam.

Plan and cater a supper for 40 people with a professional chef at a location TBC in Waltham Forest.
