DRAGON CAFE IN THE CITY
Dragon Café in the City welcomes anyone who is feeling the pressures of work or life in and around the City of London.
A pioneering model for stress relief in the Square Mile, it is hosted at Shoe Lane Library, within Deloitte’s London campus. Dragon Café in the City takes place fortnightly, on Wednesdays, between 12:00 and 7:30pm. Best of all, it’s completely free and open to all. You don’t have to register or book in advance. Just drop in for as little or as long as you can.
Dragon Café in the City offers a programme of activities designed to release the pressure, break the stress cycle, and build resilience.
Activities vary every Wednesday and include:
Massage (15-minute sessions you can book at the library on the day from 11:45 onwards)
Lunch & Learn sessions with refreshments provided (yes, you can eat in the library!)
Chess strategy and game development
And, even hula-hooping.
There are spaces to relax and socialise, so do bring your friends and colleagues along.

If you are struggling with your mental health, please seek support to release the pressure. A list of free services for City workers and residents can be found on the City of London Corporation's Mental Health page.
RELEASE THE PRESSURE
The City of London’s Release the Pressure campaign was launched in the summer of 2017, designed to help City workers and residents open up about mental health challenges and to ’release the pressure’ that builds as a result of work and life stresses. Dragon Café in the City will build on this initiative - giving people a physical space to unwind and release the pressure.
"Fantastic, warm, safe, friendly relief from corporate bedlam. Once a week doses have kept me sane and productive."
