Wildflower Slope near the Lido

Now that the new 800m hedge in Brockwell Park has been finished, BP Friends and Lambeth are creating a Wildflower Slope near the Lido in time for Easter. This annual wildflower mix will attract pollinating insects. Cold out but come along and help with preparing the soil for seed-sowing and putting up a protective fence! Tuesday 19th to Thursday 21st March 2013, 10am - 5pm. Warmer by then! Email contact: thoare@lambeth.gov.uk

HERNE HILL PEOPLE PROFILE! Max Rush, Photographer

We caught up with Max Rush who was tending a stall of his own photographs during the Herne Hill Market's Christmas Fair in the middle of December. Max is so young-looking you might think he's in his late teens! And would therefore have no idea what analogue photography means in a digital age. But you'd be wrong! It must be all the fresh air work photographing nature's wonders in urban settings because Max is well into his 30s and got into photography long before digital, has spent loads of time in the darkroom, and for many reasons still prefers the feeling film engenders. But it is pretty much all digital for him these days given shorter turnaround time and the expense of processing film stock.

 

Bank Holiday Exhibition: Max Rush, Photographs of Brockwell Park

Local artist Max Rush has spent the past few years photographing Brockwell Park in all seasons, all weathers, all lights. This Bank Holiday weekend - Saturday May 28 to Monday May 30 inclusive - you can see the results. About 40 of his stunning images will be on show in the Picture Room of Brockwell Hall.

Free entry, free daily guided tours at 11.30 and 2.30. Opening hours: 10.30 to 4.30 daily.

Cards and posters will be on sale.

Brockwell Hall celebrates 200 years - its foundations were laid in 1811. The Picture Room, adorned with paintings by a member of the Strachey family, is rarely open to the public.

This is the second exhibition organised at Brockwell Hall this year by the Friends of Brockwell Park. The third, to be held October 5-9, 2011, is a pre-opening celebration of the riches of the Black Cultural Archives.
