Join Deborah Hedgecock, Curator at Bruce Castle Museum, as she explores the many rich and diverse LGBTQ+ stories from Wood Green’s past and present, from organised resistance to the infamous Section 28 at Reading Matters bookshop, to hopping on the Piccadilly line for a pride filled night out in Soho! Starting and ending at two important rallying points for LGBTQ+ activism (the Civic Centre and Duckett’s Common) on this walk you’ll discover incredible tales of community solidarity, activism, and celebration.

Tuesday, 18th June 2024, 2.00pm to 4.00pm

22 June is Windrush Day, and Windrush has its own London Transport rail line to celebrate, recognising the contribution immigrants made to the country. It doesn’t go through Haringey, but we have our Weaver and Suffragette lines. Weaver, from Liverpool Street to Enfield/Cheshunt/Chingford, acknowledges the immigrant French silk weavers and the Jewish ‘rag trade’. It brought migrants from the East End to Tottenham and provided residents with the easiest route to the Essex seaside.

Beautiful flowers, plants and bold colours inspired the exquisite fabric designs and artwork of internationally-renowned Althea McNish. She also loved creating her own special garden at 142 West Green Road in Tottenham.

Why not join local artist Siân Dorman and get hands on and creative just like Althea and make your own floral designs and flowers – out of recycled plastic! No previous art experience necessary – just a love for being creative and trying something new!

Fallow deer in Alexandra Park
Tuesday, 16th July 2024, 2.00pm to 4.00pm

Since the 19th century, Haringey’s fields and woods have been steadily covered in bricks and concrete. But through foresight and community action, some green spaces have survived. Tottenham Marshes to the east and Highgate Woods to the west edge a borough with parks, greens, allotments and commons poking holes in our urban jungle. Today, children play in the parks, walkers patrol the larger areas, with runners and cyclists weaving round them, football and tennis players find their places and for fitness there are the outdoor gyms.
