On Monday we had the pleasure of being whisked off to St Paul’s Cathedral to hear a symphony orchestra and choir performing a War Requiem as part of the City of London Festival. With 10 free tickets snapped up, and free taxi rides to and from St Pauls, our group were excited and raring to go!

With a pre-concert introduction and Q&A with the performers, the concert was given another dimension and made more accessible to those who may not have experienced such a thing before.

The group had a fantastic time, and also really enjoyed visiting St Paul’s Cathedral, many of whom had not been since they were children, and were very impressed with the architecture and incredible sound.

So a huge thanks to Phillipa from City of London Festival, we are looking forward to next year already!

Yesterday our regular Monday Get Together (3.30 – 5pm) at Café Cucina 327 developed a new photography project with Peter Kyte from Urban Fotog.

Moving on from our exploration of the architecture and external environment around Cally Road, this session was all about us! Everyone was invited to bring along an object or item of personal significance to them and, using Peter’s mini lighting system, we documented and shared our stories around these objects with each other to print into postcards to sell at The Cally Fest this September.

From sepia postcards of Islington’s glamorous past, to a handmade silver ring, photos of one attendee’s Brazilian parents, to a funny stone pig kept safely in a sock, there was an array of eclectic and fascinating souvenirs from an equally eclectic and fascinating group of people!

It was a lovely afternoon of sharing stories over fantastic Italian coffee, and one which won’t be soon forgotten.

Join us at Cucina 327 next week for a chat and a cuppa, and share your stories!

Call Activities Manager Ellie Shipman on 0207 281 6018 for more information, or just pop in.
