British Museum Exhibition

Private viewing of Burma to Myanmar

Sunday 29th October, entry time 12:30 at the British Museum

I have 9 tickets for a very special community preview at the British Museum.
From influential superpower to repressive regime, Myanmar – also known as Burma – has seen dramatic fluctuations in fortune over the past 1,500 years. Experiencing decades of civil war and now ruled again by a military dictatorship, Myanmar is an isolated figure on the world stage today, and its story is relatively little known in the West. However, the extraordinary artistic output of its peoples, over more than a millennium of cultural and political change, attests to its pivotal role at the crossroads of Asia.

Walk around London

Stroll through Surrey Quays with Richard

Saturday 11th November, 11:00 – 13:00

Join Richard for a leisurely walk from Canada Water to Tower Hill. We will stroll along the Albion Channel to the river. Take a look at the area termed Rotherhithe Village, which includes St Mary’s Church and The Brunel Museum.

We then follow the Thames as much as we can past “The Crooked House” to Tower Bridge followed by a walk over Tower Bridge to Tower Green.

It’s expected the walk will take nearly two hours or so. Once at Tower Green there is a large Wetherspoons, where, for those who wish, there will be an opportunity to have a coffee or something more substantial.

Meet at Canada Water Station at 11am just outside the small Sainsbury (As you exit the barriers, keep left).

Please do not visit me at Dragon Hall. I work at different venues throughout the week and I might not be there.

It is essential that all events/workshops or classes are booked in advance. If you would like to attend an event, please ALWAYS contact me beforehand.

Please note that all payments for classes are paid online via our website. If you have any difficulty with this, I am happy to assist. But again, this must be done beforehand and booked with me.


Thank you for your support and cooperation.
