Yam Yam!What happens when art and food meet? That's the question behind Yam Yam! a new six-week festival at The Albany, Deptford's multi-use performing arts theatre. Highlights of the programme include an intimate theatre piece for an audience of 25, a homage to fried chicken, and a West African night of spoken word and poetry delivered in three courses - with food to match. The festival launches on Sunday 6th October with a selection of samples giving a taste of the festival. The day will include a petting zoo, a cocktail making workshop, live music, tasting events and an autumn BBQ.

 

About The Albany

Originally established in 1894 as the Deptford Fund, The Albany has a long history of entertaining within the Deptford community. But it was in the early 1970s that the theatre in its current guise really got going when a fringe theatre group set up home here under the direction of Paul Curno. More about The Albany
