A look at on-going birthday celebrations by Tim the Turtle
HARLOW New Town has been around now for 75 years evolving from the original design by Sir Frederick Gibberd into what it is today with visions abounding of what it may become.
The Birthday celebrations are ongoing but on my wanderings this week I have picked up some that I wanted to share with you all.
The newly refurbished Harlow Central Library has an exhibition of 75 years of Harlow upstairs curated by Harlow Museum which is also host to a marvellous musical memory journey through the life of Harlow’s music including events at the Town Park and The Square.
September starts with Matipo Arts holding a Card Making Workshop at their home in Parndon Mill which now also has a new book about it’s history available.
Hot on the heels of this opener for September is Harlow 75 at the Harlow Playhouse looking at the past, present and future of the town expressed in a variety of artistic expressions during this Pay What You Can Event on Saturday the 3rd of September with a repeat show at Harlow Museum on October 29th.
Again it is Matipo Arts putting on the show and combining local people’s contributions at workshops they have been running during the previous few months in partnership with other organisations such as Harlow Rock School and Rhiannon Faith.
Parndon Mill opens its doors for visitors at it’s beautiful site on the 10th and 11th of September.
Birthdays are memorable days for people and places and whether it’s the Teenage Ninja Turtle decorated cake or the kindly baked cake for someone without one as provided by one of our wonderful police staff’s charity they are a chance to mark the passing of another milestone.
As a turtle myself milestones seem a long, long way apart but they come round rather too quickly and before you know it you don’t move quite so well as you did before!!!
Happy Birthday Harlow
The lack of comments until this one after 16 days must say something about the town or am I being cynical?
