Lewes House of Friendship

Lewes House of Friendship is based at 208 High Street, Lewes (next to Flint Owl Bakery). We provide a range of activities of interest to older members of the local community and a place where you can meet for companionship and to make new friends - we also offer teas, coffees and a hot lunch.

  • We are open from 10am to 1.30pm, Monday to Friday.

  • Home -cooked lunches for £7 (members) and £8 (visitors) - served at 12.30pm. Please call us to book ahead, by the previous day at the latest, on 01273 476469. Let us know if you have any allergies or need a vegetarian option.

  • NEW! Memory Choir
    For anyone who has issues with memory including dementia.
    It started on Wednesday 11th January from 2.30 - 3.30pm and we meet every Wednesday - all welcome.

  • Warm Space
    As a result of the increase in energy costs, and the fear that many will be unable to afford to heat their homes during the day, some community organisations are opening their buildings as a place for people to come and be warm.

    We are grateful to Lewes District Council who have provided funding for the Lewes House of Friendship to become a 'warm space'.

    People over the age of 55 are welcome to come into The House between 10.00am and 1.00pm on any weekday, they will be welcomed with a hot drink and a friendly safe environment.

  • Music is back in the Lewes House of Friendship! The Friendship Choir and Ukulele Group have both resumed - all welcome. There will also be a Memory Choir starting very soon on Wednesday afternoons - have a look on our activities page where more details are available.

  • New room for hire! Our former snooker room has been redecorated and furnished. It is ready for hire! Find out more on the activities page.


Our Annual Membership Fee is going up!

We have taken the difficult decision to raise our membership fee for 2023. From 1st January 2023 the annual cost for a single member will be £15 and £25 for a couple.

  • If you are no longer able to come in to the House but would like to keep in touch, give us a ring on 01273 476469 to let us know. Thank you.

  • Please note that we now have a card reader, so you may like to pay by card when you come in. Otherwise cash or a cheque is fine.
