It’s March, the days are getting longer and Spring is almost here… Phew! There are a few interesting things going on for free this weekend, so make the most of your time and enjoy what’s on offer locally. There are other exhibitions still running, (check out the ‘whats on’ blogs for the past few weeks), and loads of other ideas via the links on the right of our web page. Whatever you do have a great weekend!
The Geffrye Museum First Saturday Family Day on March 3rd has activities for everyone, including the chance to create a springtime character or flower-shaped photo frame for 5-11 year-olds at 10.30am – 12.30pm, and 11 to 19 year-olds can use lavender from the herb garden and lemon to bake biscuits and create a beautiful box to put them in from 2.00 – 4.00pm.

Thursday March 8th is International Women’s Day, and there are a number of free events and exhibitions in Tower Hamlets and Hackney as part of the month-long Wisewords Festival celebrating women writers, artists and performers organised by Alternative Arts.
