Easter Holidays are on so many community centres are closed whilst planning post-Easter events.
The Mill in Coppermill Lane E17 and The Claremont Project in White Lion Street, Islington are always putting on events for everyone and usually for free so just check their websites.
Lloyd Park Sharing Heritage for over 50s has produced a booklet about the free to join group’s activities and events. Fitzroy Johnson’s poems are well worth a read. Some of us have met him at projects at The Mill and at Artillery mounted events to do with creative writing. All success to him, a marvellous local sharing poet.
Fri April 21st Some Up Your Streeters have booked themselves to enjoy a Jamaican inspired feast at Butler’s Bakery in Leytonstone.
Next stop may be the restaurant above Hoo Hing wholesalers in Argall Industrial Estate. There is a spacious place where I presume you can ask for a crab to be cooked after you’ve chosen it from a tank in the store. Maybe we’ll do that after we’ve attended a workshop at the new pottery studio around the corner.
Reminder that on May 4th some have signed up for the workshop at Whitechapel Gallery. I’ll send out a reminder.
There is a great creative and well-being festival coming up in June with bookings taking place now. Advertised are free textile exhibitions in Hackney and workshops. Just put the festival title into your search engine and see what pops up. Many events such as demonstrations, discussions, sing-alongs and etc.
In June too there’s the Anti-University event-laden jamboree with many many free events in ten days. Mostly around Hackney and Old Street area there are exhibitions, discussions, performances and everything in between.
Our local sewing lady, Hilary at Tuesday’s Sociable Sewing at The Mill, will be running more sessions at Claremont. Sylvia and BN will be presenting a topic at Soapbox next month. It is a fact too that Soapbox will not be monthly come to Autumn and beyond.
