Every year we book a Christmas show for residents that is suitable for all ages. This year we’ve booked Circus 1903 at the Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, Waterloo.

Experience the thrills and daredevil entertainment of a turn-of-the-century circus. Fresh from the Paris Theatre in Las Vegas, Circus 1903 visits Southbank Centre for its European premiere. The show includes sensational life-sized elephants stunningly created by puppeteers from War Horse, putting elephants back in the ring as never before. The circus boasts a huge cast of jaw-dropping and dangerous acts from all corners of the globe. Featuring acrobats, contortionists, jugglers, trapeze and high-wire performers and more, this show captivates and transports audiences of all ages to the golden age of circus.

Book early to avoid disappointment!

And watch this space because we will also be booking tickets for Swan Lake and Motown the Musical in the New Year.

Major works to buildings

All of Zebra’s buildings are old - some older than others. And that is part of what we are. Residents get the opportunity to live in great areas in typical London houses from generally the nineteenth century. But that also means that there are always repairs to be carried out.

At Carleton Road we have a small roof to recover and ongoing repairs, yet to be scheduled, to repair damage caused by nearby trees. The trees have now been removed and we are waiting for the ground to settle down. The building is monitored regularly.

At Sentosa we are carrying out repairs to the roof at the rear where there is damage to the leadwork causing water to get into the building. We’ll also be reducing the size of the trees.

At Impala we are altering the guttering to the front buildings in Chalcot Square and replacing some windows.

At Jerome we’ve moved the laundry room in preparation for renewing the main boilers next year.
