TIDELINE – A Celebration – Saturday 5th May

TIDELINE – A Celebration

Saturday 5th May

12.30pm and/or 2pm, Belvedere – details below

Tideline was a Heritage Lottery project in Belvedere, delivered by the London Borough of Bexley. I worked with local people and Trinity school to uncover memories and stories about the area. These were used as inspiration for a new series of poems, one of which has been installed as series of signs, running from Belvedere Station to the river wall. We have also produced a beautiful book about the whole project, featuring oral history accounts from local people and photographic portraits by Eva Sajovic. There’s more about the project at www.belvederestories.co.uk

The celebration has two parts – you are very welcome to join us for one or the other, or both!

12:30pm     Tideline Wayfarer Walk
Meet at the Norman Road entrance to Belvedere Station
Follow the Tideline signs with me to the river wall via the marshes. We will then walk to Belvedere Community Centre, making the entire route approximately 2.5 miles.

2 – 3.30pm    Tideline Celebration, Book Launch and Exhibition
Belvedere Community Centre, Mitchell Close, Belvedere, DA17 6AA
Join us to celebrate with tea and cake. Find out more about the project as a whole and see the project publication. Everyone who has contributed to Tideline will be able to collect a copy of this on the day.

We are able to assist with transport to and from the celebrations, so please get in touch if this would be helpful or if you have any other access requirements or questions.

Please RSVP to camilla.brueton@bexley.gov.uk
