Autumn in London Park

Saturday 9th October 2021


Good afternoon all,

I hope that your weekend is going well so far. Here is this weeks newsletter and most up to date timetable. Please could all members note the following:-

If you need to contact me, please contact me only on this mobile number 07759 646507. 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. Dragon Hall is still following social distancing guidelines and most sessions are now fully booked. 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.

Lunchtime welcome workshop 1-
Life Story Maps project

You are cordially invited to join MOLA for our Life Story Maps lunchtime welcome workshop, funded by HS2 and kindly supported by the Covent Garden Dragon Hall Trust.

Here you’ll meet some of the MOLA team, including Rob Hartle, a MOLA Senior Archaeologist, who led the HS2 archaeological excavations at St James’s Gardens. Rob will share his knowledge of the site and a few of the stories of the 57,000 people buried there (images of human skeletal remains will be present).

He’ll then introduce you to the documentary research element of the project and help you to identify your own possible avenues of research.

Over the FREE lunch provided, we can then answer any questions you have about the Life Story Maps project.
