On Monday 23rd, there's stuff planned from 6am-12noon, even though the 'Olympic Flame' will have come and gone before 8am. See the route here or pick up a leaflet at Wavelengths or the Lounge. Those up early enough will be able to watch Doreen Lawrence carry the torch. The relay begins at the Laban Centre in Creekside, starting at approximately 7.30am and arriving at The Stephen Lawrence Centre on Brookmill Road at around 7.49am, passing via Creek Road, the high street, Giffin Street and past Crossfields on Church Street at about 7.40am.
There will be road closures all around the area till midday on Monday, starting from this evening when the top part of Creekside will be closed all weekend.
The Stephen Lawrence Centre will also be hosting a Family Fun Day from noon-4pm on Monday, (during which time the torch will have been through Bromley, Croydon and Sutton and arrived at Merton, as part of Day 66 (?) of the relay).
UPDATE: Thanks to a comment from Anonymous (below) we have made a correction to the printed information in leaflets available in local venues: Giffin Square has replaced 'Albany Square' as the venue for much of the entertainment planned. Unfortunately we could not find any details on Lewisham's website to refer readers to.
