'Memorabilia' promises to be an art exhibition with a difference! Recall precious moments from childhood, conjuring an atmosphere of nostalgia and reintroducing you to some gems from the past, all through the work of some of the UK's most influential artists.
The event will take place in the Art Studios of 66 Norlington Road, Leyton E10 6LA on the weekend of the 6th and 7th July, 12-5pm as part of the Leytonstone Arts Trail.
On the Saturday night from 8pm there will also be a party hosted by the artists resident at the studios, during which visitors can take part in some retro gaming, enjoy some toys of yesteryear and even take part in a Space Hopper Race! (It's got to be worth going, just for that!)
But all these fun and games is for the more important purpose of raising much needed funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital and the fine work they do for sick children.
Carne Griffths, artist and organiser of this superb event:
“We owe so much to GOSH, they saved our little girl, Noemi’s life. Through their actions my wife Claire and I were inspired to do something positive. We wanted to create a sense of nostalgia with this show, to remind us of our inner child. Hopefully those feelings will raise money for the incredibly important work GOSH does.”
