Welcome to the Friends of Age Exchange. We support the work of Age Exchange, a charity based in Blackheath, south-east London, by raising income through membership subscriptions and fund-raising events as well as by raising awareness of the charity’s work. Age Exchange is the UK's leading reminiscence charity using memories and arts to bring people together, to make their lives better, to learn from and value each other and to build stronger families and communities. It provides training to help NHS staff transform the treatment of older people, particularly Alzheimers's and dementia sufferers. The charity also hosts and runs Blackheath Village Library - a branch of the Lewisham public library service.
Blackheath Christmas Fair - 23 November 2014
After the great success of the 2013 Fair which attracted around 2,000 visitors, we are delighted that the 2014 Fair will be held in the Great Hall of Blackheath Halls giving much more space for stalls and buyers. To apply for a stall, complete the application form and, as shown on the form, return by the closing date Friday 11 April 2014. Successful applicants will be notified by 13 May. Do not delay - we were very oversubscribed last year!

Lunchtime Concert in the Bakehouse
On the last Wednesday of each month (except August and December) the Friends of Age Exchange arrange a lunchtime concert given by students of Trinity Laban. The March concert will feature a trombone quartet with Ryan Hume (tenor trombone), Ross Lumbard (tenor trombone), Rob Taylor (tenor trombone) and Ben Robertson (bass trombone). The programme includes Trombone Quartet by Bourgeois, Myths and Legends by Eric Ewazen plus a mixture of jazz/light music and well known classics arranged for the ensemble.
Admission is free although there will be a retiring collection in aid of Age Exchange & Blackheath Village library.
