This week is designed to be an enjoyable, relaxing, inspiring and invigorating half term treat for the community, so we look forward to seeing you there to enjoy it with us! You are welcome to spend all day, every day.
Throughout the exhibition you can walk through a forest of banners about the Borough, made by 30+ artists. You can sit down and join one of our three creative activity stations, one being a giant mosaic of the borough, made of plastic bottle tops, which we will create with your help. In the mosaic we will incorporate your personal memories.
22-29 October, 11am-6pm daily Creative Stations: Our three relaxing and fun creative activity stations are free to join all day every day, one being a giant bottle top mosaic of the borough, made of plastic bottle tops, which we will create with your help. In the mosaic we will incorporate your personal memories. So please get collecting plastic lids of all shapes and colours, give them a quick rinse and just bring them along! It's as easy as helping to lay a giant puzzle and similarly as therapeutic. The bottle top mosaic project will be permanently installed as a public art piece in the borough after the half term week. The project is generously supported by Jerram Falkus Constructors.
Saturday 22 October, 6-7.30pm, the Hungarian singer-songwriter Julia Szatmari will give a truly marvellous concert - a feast for the senses and a great space for our souls to unfold.
On Thursday 27 October 6-7pm, the Crofton Singers will treat us to choir music of the finest sort.
On Saturday 29 October, the final day, Finnish guitar artist Tuomo Karjalainen will be playing two concerts: 11-12am and 6-7pm. He would like you to bring along art materials, sketch books and writing pads for you to create art and poetry while he is playing. The great pond with the wildlife and the swan right in front of you might serve as just the right inspiration.
