Well who’d believe it, this weekend marks the start of September. The schools will soon be starting and as the nights draw in we’ll be getting our warm clothes, blankets and duvets ready… Yikes! Our superb new machine can make light work of duvets, blankets and extra-large washes so get ahead of the crowds and get your autumn washes done early. You can drop it off for a service wash and pick it up at your convenience – we’re open 8am until 7pm every day, (except Bank Holidays), so you don’t have to hang around and wait.
Enough of the advertising, here are the free things we’ve found for you this weekend…
It’s Family Saturday at the Geffrye Museum on Saturday 1st September. Young people aged 3-16 have the chance to bake biscuits, decorate them and make a box to take them home in. Sessions are at 10.30am – 12.30pm and 2 – 4pm. For those aged 16-19 there’s the chance to make a lampshade in an Art Deco or Art Nouveau style from 2-4pm. For full details see the Geffrye Museum website. Don’t forget it’s got lovely gardens and a great cafe too!
The Angel Canal Festival takes place on Sunday 2nd September from 11am until 6pm. It’s a great event alongside the towpath and local streets near City Road Basin and Lock. There’s live music, dancing, a children’s funfair, Punch & Judy shows, an outdoor art gallery, food stalls and a regatta – and loads more too! From Shoreditch Town Hall get the 55 or 243 bus and get off at Graham Street. Walk along Graham Street towards Danbury Street and you’ll soon see the festival. Check out Google Maps if you’re uncertain. You can also visit the Angel Canal Festival website for more information.
Potters Fields Park between Tower Bridge and City Hall on the south side of the Thames has a whole range of activities throughout the Paralympics with giant puppet shows, theatre, dance and poetry performances plus lots more besides. Whilst there you could also stroll along to More London and check out the amazing images by photojournalist Tom Stoddart – this exhibition alone is well worth the visit.
