Relativity event – Fabrica Tues 6th Dec

Strike a Light is organising a free day long event at Fabrica gallery http://www.fabrica.org.uk on Tuesday 6th December 11-4pm called ‘Relativity’ about the theme of the family, including films, creative workshops, talks, story telling and family portrait drawing.

It is aimed at all, but especially older members of the community. (Some transport is available for elderly groups-  please get in touch with me to arrange this). To book for larger groups, please use the contact details on attached poster.

In addition, there will be a film showing from 6-8.30pm also on Tuesday 6th December at Fabrica of Mid-Summer Lunch, a quirky screening chronicling a food-filled nonagenarian sleepover, catered for by the only cast member under 60! Come along after work or after the event for this cosy event with sofas, cushions, cocoa, mulled wine and nibbles for the entry price of £1! A perfect antidote to the cold outside.
All welcome!

*** 8.00 pm The Inaugural Busby Berkeleying in a Public Place – chorus line performance of ‘We’re in the Money’ to open the event Hope Springs Eternal in the Pavilion Gardens, just in front of the cafe.

QueenSpark Book launch a success!

Thank you to all those who attended the launch of the QueenSpark Books Photo Collection last night ; for those that didn’t, it is now online at www.photosbrightonandhove.org.uk – images are being added all of the time, so there is plenty to see – and why not dig out your own photographs and add them to the Collection too?

Queenspark Books 100 mile celebration!

To celebrate QueenSpark’s 100th book, Nicola Benge donated the proceeds from her 100 mile Walk-A-Thon.

This sponsored walk in August 2011 took Nicola along the entire South Downs Way from Winchester Cathedral in Hampshire to Eastbourne, East Sussex – 106 miles, and only one blister!

Nicola would like to thank everyone for sponsoring her and QueenSpark would like to thank her for her contribution towards funding the archiving of local heritage and memories.
