What’s on

INTERACTIVE THEATRE EXPERIENCE IN THE APR THIS SATURDAY 8th of JULY 2017.

IAM4.0

The critically acclaimed iAm4.0 explores our attachment to technology, and the human cost we are willing to accept in the digital age. 

Most of us have accepted technology as a practical way of improving daily life. Yet we’ve all caught ourselves shouting at Siri or berating Sat Nav as if they were humans. The gadgets we rely on play a more emotional role than we like to admit.  The performance is set up as a ‘secret focus group’ testing the latest technology, allowing the participants to explore themes of attachment and how we now communicate.

The event is part of the current tour, which includes the Arcola Theatre and Southwark Playhouse. More info can be found here: www.spidtheatre.com/iam-4-0

 


 

DAWN CHORUS WALK SUNDAY 7TH MAY 2017

For the fourth consecutive year, Andrew Peel from the Marylebone Bird Watching Society will lead a dawn chorus walk through Alexandra Road Park, NW8.

Come and meet us at 5 am by the “Fort” at the end of Rowley way, on the Abbey Road side of the Estate.

The walk will take around an hour as we will be stopping and listening as we go. Andrew will help us to identify the birds that live in the park and to hear their individual songs.

Children are very welcome on the event as long as they are accompanied by an adult, but please be aware that it may not be suitable for younger children as it will be important for the group to stay quiet during the walk.

The walk will be followed by a light breakfast in the Tenants Hall.

DAWN CHORUS WALK ON SUNDAY  24th APRIL 2016. JOIN A VERY SPECIAL EVENT!

DawnChorusWak24AprilAndrew Peel from the Marylebone Bird Watching Society will lead a dawn chorus walk through Alexandra Road Park, NW8. This will be free to attend. It is the third time we have run a bird watching/listening event in the park and the last one was very popular.

The birdsong is best heard at dawn itself, so we will be starting at 5.00am! It’s an early start, but this is a unique chance to find out more about the birds that live in this area.

Please be at the meeting point at least 5 minutes early and make sure you are dressed warmly and wearing sensible shoes.

The walk will take around an hour as we will be stopping and listening as we go. Andrew will help us to identify the birds that live in the park and to hear their individual songs.

Children are very welcome on the event as long as they are accompanied by an adult, but please be aware that it may not be suitable for younger children as it will be important for the group to stay quiet during the walk.

We will meet-up where Rowley Way meets Abbey Road, by the “Fort” which is the circular seating structure next to the road.

The walk will be followed by a light breakfast in the Tenants Hall.

Please let us know by email if you are going to attend as we need to know how many people to expect on the day. Email us at: friendsofarp@gmail.com

And feel free to tell your friends and neighbours about this event. We hope to see you there!
