The month of little showers, Easter Bunnies and a Royal Wedding is on us already. Yikes! Don’t forget to sort out your summer clothes and get them freshened up with a service wash. It takes the stress out of the chore and gives you time to enjoy some free local events…
The Geffrye Museum has family events and activities on Saturday 2nd April: From 10.30am to 12.30pm and 2.00 to 4.00pm children aged 5-11 can make an Easter-inspired bag to collect their Easter eggs, whilst at 2pm young people aged 11-19 can learn origami techniques and create intricate sculptures using Japanese papers. For details of these events and other information, check out the website: http://www.geffrye-museum.org.uk/
The Hackney Museum has two great exhibitions showing aspects of life in Hackney and the East End. Through An Affectionate Lense: An exhibition of drawings, cartoons and photographs taken by Hackney resident Tony Hall in the 1960s and East End Boxing Lives: The London Ex Boxers Association presents an exhibition exploring the story of boxing in the East End of London. The museum is open Tuesday to Saturday, for full information check their website: http://www.hackney.gov.uk/cm-museum.htm
