I hope you're not too worn out from taking part in (or in my case watching) the half marathon this weekend, because you'll need plenty of energy this week to tackle Greenwich's totally jam-packed calendar of events.
Dance features prominently in this week's schedule. The Greenwich Dance Agency are hosting the first of three monthly master classes in Tea Dance this Sunday, teaching the cha-cha, waltz and other classic forms. All classes are followed by a real tea dance, with live music, tea and (for me) the real highlight: cake. If you're more of a spectator than a performer the GDA are also showcasing the results of the British East Asian Choreography Development Scheme (yes it is a mouthful) on Friday. The four contemporary dancers performing were chosen after a nationwide search and it promises to be a top-class production.
Continuing the dance theme, the prize for this week's best event name goes to Adventures in Anti-Cool, featuring three of the UK's finest hip-hop dancing groups at the Albany. Close second is Rollercoaster V at the O2, headlined by contemporary rock covers band Coaster. Air guitars at the ready!
If you have any family heirlooms sitting at the back of your cupboards then I suggest you dig them out and dust them off now, because the BBC 1 Antiques Roadshow is coming to Greenwich this week! Fiona Bruce and her crew of crusty experts will be at the Old Royal Naval College on Thursday sifting through cobwebbed portraits and cracked teacups to find Greenwich's hidden treasures.
If you want to give yourself a more realistic chance of making some money, the South East London Chamber of Commerce are holding ‘Beat the Squeeze'. This networking event is all about offering advice to local businesses about coping through the recession.
Greenwich's Theatres are also hives of activity this week. The Playhouse is into its second and final week of the fantastic ‘East', and Greenwich Theatre is staging ‘Scandal Faustus', presenting Doctor Faustus and School for Scandal in repertory with just one cast.
Finally there's also a Benefit Night for Demelza Hospice at Up the Creek Comedy Club on Thursday, a new exhibition at the National Maritime Museum by contemporary artist Jeremy Millar from Monday, and the Friends of Plumstead Gardens open meeting on Thursday evening at St Nicholas' Church Hall.
