February is here and it is time to come out of hibernation. There is lots to see and do in London town and it’s time to use those valuable days off work, or days with the family, and experience everything London has to offer.
Become a Volunteer
The William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow recently won the Art Fund Museum of the Year and it has quickly established a reputation as a modern, family friendly gallery. This weekend they are holding a drop in session for people who may be interested in volunteering for the gallery. This is your chance to get involved in a great museum, to meet new people and gain new skills in beautiful surroundings. What better way to start the new year?
Saturday 10am-5pm William Morris Volunteer day
Staying in is the New Going Out
Staying in on Saturday and you don’t want to watch The Voice? Sky Arts 1 is showing The South Bank Sky Arts Awards 2014, celebrating the best of British culture and achievement across the arts.
Chinese New Year in London’s Chinatown
Welcome in The Year of The Horse in style in London’s Chinatown. Celebrations take place on Sunday, starting at 10am with a parade through Trafalgar Square. There will be plenty of other activities on offer too with lots of restaurants and bars offering special menus, street performers and market stalls, all based in Chinatown. Expect crowds.
As Britain continues its obsession with all things Scandinavian, why not visit Nordicana 2014? Already sold out for Saturday this two-day event has exhibits, food, previews and screenings all in the trendy setting of The Old Truman Brewery.
