Positively Balmy…

Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 09/12/2010

With the promise of sunshine and temperatures above freezing forecast this weekend, we’re going crazy with excitement here at Launderette Towers. It may even be the weather to try out the knitted bathing suit from the 1930s in the picture below or, if you’re more sensible, you might prefer the balaclava, scarf, gloves and socks ‘For Men in the Fleet‘ at the foot of this page! Our giddiness may also be explained because we’ve had an amazing 5,250 visitors to our webpages since going live on 14th July. Thanks to everyone for their continuing support of the Boundary Community Launderette.

Once again, despite trawling the web and asking around, there isn’t a great deal new happening locally. The Geffrye Museum and Bethnal Green Museum of Childhood exhibitions are ongoing, as is the wonderful exhibition of rock photographer Mick Rock at the Idea Generation Gallery, Chance Street. If you want to venture a little bit further afield we’ve a couple of events to whet your appetite…

The South Bank Centre plays host to the Chocolate Festival, open 11am to 6pm Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th December. There will be free cookery demonstrations, tastings and lots of stalls. Yum!  http://www.southbankcentre.co.uk/find/tickets/the-chocolate-festival-1000050

The Horniman Museum – only 20 minutes away from Shoreditch High Street by overground – has a great weekend of seasonal music in their beautiful gardens. On Saturday 11th Opal Flutes, South London’s only flute choir, will be playing between 3 and 4pm, and on Sunday 12th between 3 and 6pm is their Christmas Carol Concert with the English Baroque Choir and the Crystal Palace Band, carols, a Christmas craft market, hot and cold refreshments and a free Santa’s grotto. http://www.horniman.ac.uk/events/concerts.php

despite the title, we believe these could be worn by women (and landlubbers)!
