The story of east London's print industry over the past 100 years
Court Assistant Nick Mockett alerted us via an article in the Docklands and East London Advertiser to an exhibition called Lightboxes & Lettering running from Friday, January 17, 2020 to Sunday, March 29, 2020 at Nunnery Gallery, 181 Bow Road, London E3 2SJ. The opening times are: Tue-Fri 10am-4pm, Sat & Sun 10am-5pm.
As well as all sorts of ephemera and printing presses to view there will be oral histories and an events programme tpo accompany the exhibition. Members from the Printing sector will be fascinated but anyone who loves history and the East End will find something of interest.

The surplus from the event will once again be donated to the Lord Mayor's charities.
We have some fast skiers this year, including Freddie who came 8th overall last year, and so we hope to do well. At the other end of the scale competitors over the age of 75 will be competing for Bastin's Box, awarded to the fastest skier born before 15th August 1945, which Martin Woodhead will be fighting to retain!
We send them all good wishes for a successful (and injury free) campaign.
