BUSY SATURDAY...

I popped along to Wanstead library last night to listen to Geraldine Roberts talk about her new book 'The Angel and the Cad'. It was a very full house, around 150 people I reckon, certainly the biggest turnout for an author. It's fascinating stuff and as you probably know by now the location for the story is Wanstead House. I'm not going to give any of the story away but I will say it's a cracking read. Support a local bookshop, Newham Bookshop and buy a copy there...

...and starting today The Friends of Wanstead Parklands are curating a photography exhibition as part of 2015 Wanstead Park Festival. It's on display at The Temple in the park and runs from today until July 26th so there is no excuse to miss it. There are some great pictures on display, we printed them at the Gallery so I had the benefit of a sneak preview. The pictures are all by local photography enthusiasts and cover quite a range of subjects taken at different times of the year. I have four pictures on display, the picture I have published here is one of my favourites. Do try to visit the exhibition and while the weather is so lovely enjoy a stroll around the park, it's a fantastic spot and it's right on our doorstep..

...and one last thing, on 19th July we are having a short photo walk along the river Roding, if you fancy a stroll along the banks you can find full details on the workshops page.

Enjoy the weekend..
