East End Knees Up Celebration

Ask someone what East End means to them, and the chances are they will immediately think of the traditional side of London. A London of Cockney’s, Jellied Eels, Pie, mash and liquor and of the pearly Kings and Queens. So, what is a Cockney? How did rhyming slang develop?

We are hosting an East End themed day to answer these questions and celebrate the culture that is loved by many of our residents.

A grand opening of our new bungalow will also take place on this day, so please do come and join us for a wonderful day with your loved ones.

All relatives, friends and guests are welcome.
