We’ve found a few free things to do this weekend, and although there aren’t too many they’re quality and well worth a look! There are some ongoing events and exhibitions, such as the Imagine Children’s Festival on the Southbank, so if our choices this weekend don’t inspire you check out our recent ‘What’s On’ posts and browse through our links on the right of the web page. Have a great weekend!
The Rich Mix is holding the eighth of its thirteen snapshots festivals on Saturday 18th February – Valentine’s: An East End Love Affair from midday until late. There will be market stalls, exhibitions, free theatrical performances, workshops and lots lots more for everyone from toddlers to the more mature amongst us. Highlights include films from local visual artist Phil Maxwell at midday (booking essential), Scratch Theatre, Storytelling, and ‘The Hunt ‘– a treasure hunt around Shoreditch and an evening of free comedy and cabaret from The Lonely Hearts Comedy Club. For full details and booking information see the Rich Mix website.
The Museum of London has more Dickens related activities this weekend. Dickens’ stories frequently featured London with the city becoming as much of a character as Oliver, Pip, Little Nell and Mr. Pumblechook. On Saturday 18th February at 1, 2 and 3pm ‘Strolling with Dickens’ tells how Dickens walked the streets of London in search of inspiration for his books. Join the museum’s storyteller for an interactive session as she recreates one of his strolls and brings it to life. On Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th February at 12.30pm and 2.30pm ‘Mapping Dickens’ London’ will help you make a map to guide you through Dickens’ London, and the places he visited for inspiration for his stories. See the Museum of London website for more information.
Those are our brief but high quality suggestions for this weekend. Don’t forget that it’s pancake day on Tuesday, and we’ll be posting the Delia Smith pancake recipe that so many of you liked last year!
A bit of launderette news for you too. After a slight break the launderette decoration and improvements will be completed next week so all the annoying unfinished bits will finally be tended to. Hurrah! Many of you will have heard that Mina was taken ill a few weeks ago, and has not been at work since. She’s doing well and although she will be off work for a little while longer we’re sure to be seeing back at work in the spring. We’ve got two new members of the team, Meryem and Cinnamon, who will be working at weekends and covering for their colleagues holidays and other time off. We’re really proud of our team, which also includes Maire our manager, Ali and Tina, who have always worked hard, but especially so in the past few months.
