Half Moon Theatre invite residents to Join young people and elders at this FREE community event as they unveil a unique artwork celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and local Tower Hamlets history.
The Celebrate Legacy community celebration will feature entertainment for all ages, including face painting, badge making workshops, a bouncy castle and funfair stalls, as well as a traditional BBQ and authentic Caribbean cuisine.
The Celebrate Legacy artwork consists of portraits of young people and elders in the style of the Queen and banners representing ways in which Tower Hamlets celebrated the Queen’s Coronation in 1953. Alongside this are audio recordings of interviews with the participants.
Supported by an award from Arts Council England’s Let’s Create Jubilee Fund, managed by the East End Communities Foundation, Celebrate Legacy was a collaboration between Clarion Futures, the charitable foundation of Clarion Housing Group, Half Moon Theatre and the Old Ford Art Club. The programme enabled older residents to share memories and learnings from their lives and for younger residents to share their hopes for the future.
