A few local things going on

I thought I’d use the blog today to mention another local arts venture and a couple of events in or near Kenilworth this weekend.

First up, Here Comes Everyone, the brainchild of Adam Steiner of Silhouette Press – ‘an online social network, a magazine and a resource point for people who want to get involved in the world of publishing and the arts’, as they describe themselves.  It looks a wonderful venture.  We will soon have hard copies of the magazine for sale on the market stall.  Click on the Here Comes Everyone link above to find out more and read the latest issue of the magazine.

Next – this being a Bank Holiday weekend, you may be looking for things to do.  Something I am looking forward to is the Handmade Market at St Francis of Assisi church in Kenilworth.

These are monthly markets, though I have only just come across them – looks as though there will be some lovely handcrafted things on offer, including woodturning and remodelled silver spoons – the latter sound particularly intriguing! Definitely worth a visit – click on the name in my bit of text above the poster to find out more.

Lastly – the second-hand booksale at Coventry Cathedral, which is on over the three days of the holiday, 4-6 May (Saturday to Monday) from 10am, to raise funds for the North Wall  of the ruined cathedral (still very much part of the current cathedral, and central to the cathedral’s international reconciliation work).  It’s surely worth posting their fabulous promotional photo again – irresistible!

There is lots more going on, I am sure, and it promises to be a good weekend in terms of weather; with the Kenilworth Festival the following weekend (Tree House will have a stall at the street fair on Warwick Road on Saturday 11th May, as well as the launch of our Film Club – see tab above – that same evening at the Kenilworth Centre), we are in for a couple of weekends with plenty to do round and about. Enjoy the bank holiday weekend – hope the sun really does stick around!
