Events in the week ahead

A couple of items have come to my attention in the week ahead, which may prove of interest to my local audience.

This weekend (13 and 14 June) the Creekside Centre is holding two open days, on Saturday and Sunday, which offer the opportunity to go along and find out just what goes on behind those decorative gates on Creekside.

Having been on one of the low tide walks in the past, I can thoroughly recommend them - and this weekend the centre's staff are leading four walks, two each day. It's best to book in advance, but then you just turn up, put on the waders and grab a stick and enjoy an hour or so's walk along bottom of the creek. If this isn't really your sort of thing, there are plenty more activities going on at the centre this weekend - you can check out the numerous sculptures made of peculiar items that have been found in the Creek; enjoy river dipping sessions; or sample tea and cakes and participate in the bug hunts and games and quizzes.

See the website for further information.

Meanwhile there is what promises to be a good night out at the Albany for the adults next week - the OOXXOO art collective is running a music night on Thursday 18 June from 7.30pm onwards. The Invisible are headlining, fresh from supporting Hot Chip, the Doves and the Foals and are supported by Monade, Exlovers, Dimbleby & Capper and David Jay. There will also be DJ sets by Alexis Taylor from Hot Chip, Laetitia 'Stereolab' and Marie 'Lisbonne' along with A Little Bazaar Market.

Full details of the evening and tickets are available here.
