And a belated note about the Organ and saxophone concert by Boguslaw Grabowski & Maciej Sikala on Saturday night. Maralyn Ryan writes: “The musicians received a standing ovation after a sensational performance. Our Lady of Lourdes church reverberated with the uniquely beautiful sounds created by the two instruments. Afterwards, over a glass of wine, it was great to see how the power of music had brought so many people together. A truly great evening!”
Wednesday’s events include:
* An introduction to Bowls for anyone who hasn’t played before – at the Wanstead Central Bowls Club in Nutter Lane.
* A guitar recital by the hugely talented Pete Black at the Larder (a few tickets remaining)
* An evening of fine wine, tasty cheese and Wanstead-based scandalous anecdotes (a few tickets remaining)
* A talk by author Pippa Kelly about her book which explores issues around dementia and family
* An Irish music night at the Nightingale.
Some advance notice:
* There are still some tickets yet for the Olive Oil workshop on Thursday night – where you will learn what makes a fine oil and how to tell the difference. Details here.
* On Saturday, the Taste of Wanstead event will take place in a stylish marquee on Christ Church Green – it’s a four-course taster menu with ingredients all available on Wanstead High Street. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for tickets.
* Saturday’s Kinema is already half sold-out. (If it’s rainy and windy, it will be indoors, so will still be a magical climax to Fringe week. Get your ticket here.)
