Welcome to Poplar Union
Time to put away the scarves and hats; Spring is here and we have a packed three months taking you right through to Summer!
In April we’ll be celebrating Bengali New Year with a weekend
of music, poetry and family activities courtesy of our long
term collaborators, Saudha. We’ll also be kicking off some new workshops, including a monthly Calligraphy class with a special one-off Arabic Calligraphy session in May, a Saturday morning yoga class for all you early risers, and a Food & Nutrition class helping you create delicious meals and snacks that are good for the mind and body!
In May, the always-entertaining Really Big Pants Theatre Company return with a brand new show, Clare and Cory Share a (Glorious) Story!, teaching your little ones the importance of sharing and play. If history and heritage is your thing, then join Poplar local, Clare Smith, on her walking tour of Poplar, where you can learn all about the often surprising and unexpected history of one of East London’s best kept secrets.
We’ll be turning up the volume in June with some exciting new additions to our music programme, including Bring a Baby Ukelele sessions for little tots, and a Monday, Sunday night jam session for local musicians.
