Family Weekend at King’s Place – 25, 26 July

Art&about The Bulletin Board just received this announcement from King's Place regarding their hosting a family weekend at the end of July.

Kings Place is opening its doors and inviting you to come in, join in and do something creative to start the summer holidays. Kings Place Family Weekend is part of the London 2012 Open Weekend supported by BP – a series of events across the country enabling access to excellence in the arts, culture and sport and celebrating three years to go until the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Kings Place Family Weekend 25th and 26th July is an open arts weekend of workshops, free arts activities, an unplugged music stage, performance and canal boat trips. Workshops range from African hand drumming and time capsule drama to how to draw a comic strip.  There are free arts activities around the building enabling children and their parents to do something creative together and a performance art piece by Nandita Ghose combining sculpture, real ice cream and witty words, all served up in one colourful cornucopia. Young music talent will be showcased throughout the weekend on the concert level foyer: from Jazz to folk, rock to rap on the under 26 ‘Unplugged Stage’.  Historic narrow boat Tarporley, which is moored at Kings Place, will be running short trips throughout the weekend, offering potential skippers the chance to join in and have a go at exploring the boat and working the locks. On display will be sculptures created by local children who have been working with Abigail Fallis, Pangolin’s artist in residence. Tickets are on sale now at: Box office: 0207 520 1490

Many thanks and kind regards
