Yesterday we were lucky enough to enjoy a fantastic tour from the Estorick Collection around their new exhibition on Italian photographer Giorgio Casali. With an expert on hand to show us round we learnt a lot about the iconic photographer – from his playfulness with light and dark, to weight and design.

With a beautiful collection of Casali’s photographs, as well as magazine covers from the famous style magazine Domus, to furniture from the time including a book shaped chair and iconic lamp this exhibition gave a real flavour of 1960s/70s Italy – and the legacy of the style and innovation it left in its wake.

Our group had a brilliant time, enjoying the accessible and friendly tour and viewing the works on display. We even got to soak up some sunshine in the café garden afterwards. A perfect morning.

One attendee said:

I’d often walked past the Estorick Collection museum but had never visited it so I was keen to join the group yesterday.  It was very helpful to have an introduction to the exhibition which helped me to understand the works on display and made the visit interesting and enjoyable.  The café and garden area were pleasant to sit in and  have a coffee.

We had a fantastic time at the Arsenal Stadium this week on our tour with Samir Singh. From tea and cake with a view of the stadium, to a tour around the Arsenal Museum to getting to try out the VIP seats, we really we treated to the best!

Thank you Arsenal!

We were met by Helen, Camley Street’s Education Officer, who gave us an introduction (after an essential cup of tea!) and insight into the history of the park and then lead us on a lovely tour around the reserve.

Nestled between the churning regeneration works in King’s Cross and the Regents Canal Camley Street Nature Park is an oasis of wild greenery – proudly home to some rare bird and plant species.

We wandered at a leisurley pace around several ponds surrounded by fluffy bullrushes and whistling reeds, whilst ducks paddled on the surface and the tweets of the birds miraculoulsy drowned out the industrial cranes in the background.

It was a lovely afternoon and felt like a little holiday out of the city. Join us next time for your escape!
