Posted by Boundary Community Launderette on 13/09/2012
It looks like it’s going to be a nice weekend – sunny and not too chilly – keep your fingers crossed. We’ve found a few things to see and do for free, and there are loads more ideas on our links to the right of the webpage. As usual, enjoy your weekend whatever you do!
On Saturday 15th September the Great River Race starts from Millwall Riverside, Westferry Road E14, at 10.40am and will pass under Tower Bridge at around 11.15. Over 300 rowers will be taking part in boats ranging from small one-person rowing boats to Hawaiian war canoes, Chinese Dragon Boats and Viking longboats. There will be entertainment and refreshments – check out the Time Out webpage and Great River Race website for more information.
The annual Brick Lane Music Festival takes place this Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th September. Some of the UK’s top DJs, including MK, Khalil and Thristian will be making sure Brick Lane shakes to the sounds of classic hip-hop and funk. More information is on the Time Out webpage.
The South Bank Centre will be hosting a weekend of fun and games from Friday to Sunday. The Hide & Seek Weekender will include games that appeal to adults and children alike – from competitive sandwich making to punching custard. For the imaginative, weird and wonderful games on offer check out the Hide & Seek website.
Also, the Love Music Hate Racism exhibition continues at Rich Mix. On Saturday 15th September there is an all–day event, (which does charge from £3), that includes film screenings, discussions, poetry, music and comedy. Local photographers and film-makers Phil Maxwell & Hazuan Hashim will be showing their film ‘From Cable Street to Brick Lane’ as part of this event, with Phil taking part in a Q&A session afterwards. Visit the Rich Mix website for more information.
