Saturday, March 2, 2019, 10.45 am, Highbury - Grand Houses and Grander Stadiums meet at Highbury & Islington Station.
See Islington's largest open space - Highbury Fields. Appreciate the grandeur of the beautiful Georgian houses and relive the romance of 4 Weddings & a Funeral. Then, learn the inside story on Arsenal's Highbury Stadium and end by comparing it with their new home at the Emirates (+ a visit to Gillespie Park, Islington's main Nature Reserve).
Saturday, March 2, 2019, 2.30 pm, Fables, fashion and feasts - Caledonian Market to Camden Passage, meet at Caledonian Road Station.
200 years in 2 hours. A memorable and cultural tour de force, reviewing historic sites like the Caledonian Market, Pentonville Prison and the Islington Workhouse, visiting the chic squares of Barnsbury and checking out, metaphorically, the wide-ranging dining and entertainment currently to be had on and close to Upper Street.
Saturday 23 March 2.30 pm Sculpture in the City 2018/19
We'll meet at the Liverpool Street Station Entrance in Liverpool Street itself by the Kindertransport sculpture, next to MacDonalds.
Join me for a saunter around the City. Every year, the Corporation of London organises a sculpture display on the streets in and around the City. We’ll be visiting 15 of the substantial pieces on show from artists all around the world including Tracey Emin and Sarah Lucas. We’ll appreciate the sculptures and find out a little more about them and their creators.
The cost is £10 on the day or in advance at https://tinyurl.com/yxg2ohnf
