Day 24: Generations together at Arsenal

Saturday 24 June:

All Change and Arsenal in the Community come together for a day of intergenerational celebrations and creativity with two special events. (Please note both events are fully booked this year. Apologies for any disappointment)

 Granddads, Dads and Lads will see male family members enjoy a poetry workshop and stadium tour from 10.30am with poet Paul Lyalls and Samir Singh from Arsenal in the Community.

From 2pm – over local people of all ages will come together at Emirates Stadium for Home Ground –  a not so hidden history of Arsenal and Islington behind the scenes, featuring a performance of spoken word and short films from All Change’s Saturday Socials writers group‘When Saturday Comes’ working with poet Francesca Beard and photography artist Leticia Valverdes – plus dancing, pop-up creative workshops, a chance to take a special tour of the stadium and an opportunity to record your own Islington story. The event will also see the premiere exhibition of ‘Arsenal Is’ a photo poem created by older men at The Mildmays extra care centre working with poet Simon Mole and photography artist Sarah Ainslie – plus performances from Thornhill Primary School pupils and Paul Lyalls.
