Relativity event – Fabrica Tues 6th Dec

Strike a Light is organising a free day long event at Fabrica gallery 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!

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.
