We are very pleased to announce a special event taking place at

The Arc Centre with The British Museum on Tuesday 9th April from 10.30am – 12pm.

The British Museum have very kindly offered us an object handling workshop with artist Chloe Cooper. We will be handling objects and artefacts from the museum’s collections and trying our own Ice Age style carving into soap.

We also have some more tickets for a community preview on Saturday 25th May.

Call Ellie now to book your place on either – or both! Places are limited so we will be on a first come first serve basis. Contact us – 0207 281 6018

Ice Age Art – Arrival of the Modern Mind was another fantastic afternoon enjoyed by Age UK Islington’s clients last Sunday. Viewing carvings from over 40,000 years ago one attendee said:

I was amazed such intricate objects were made then. I always imagined people of that time going around with clubs and boulders!

Another said:

It was very enjoyable. The pieces were fascinating – they even had one of a man’s body with a lion’s head. To think people over 40,000 years ago were so creative, and with such crude tools!

One attendee, currently studying anthropology and psychology, also attended the curator’s talk by Jill Cook which he said was so fascinating he has now signed up to six more talks at The British Museum! He said:

It was really interesting and a lot of it was new to me. I would recommend anyone going to see it!

We will certainly be back for more, so thank you British Museum!


Age UK Islington Activities has been offered 10 FREE tickets to see the preview of the Ice Age Art exhibition on Sunday 3rd February. Please contact us now for your FREE ticket – call Activities Manager Ellie Shipman on 0207 281 6018 to book.
