Then we’ll begin…
This Saturday 30 November 12pm–4pm at the Kensal Flea, there will be non-stop stories for kids aged 4–9 and parents of all ages. Our storytelling room is curated by Richard Kilgarriff of Bookomi as a warm up for 2014′s Social Book Week and supporting The Reading Agency, a brilliant charity with a mission to give everyone an equal chance in life by helping them become confident and enthusiastic readers.
Readers at Kensal Flea will include bestselling author Penelope Harper (Lollipop and Grandpa series) and Worrisome Wilf co-creator Martin Gordon, who will both be reading and signing their books. Plus classic favourites (Angelina Ballerina, Room on the Broom, Hungry Caterpillar, Winnie the Pooh). Check the story board on the day for guest readers including 6 Music’s Shaun Keaveny.

Photos by Mark Tamer who is part of a local group of photographers who will be offering free photographic portraits at the Paradise this Saturday…
‘We started the project at Queens Park Day this year,’ says Mark. ’See our website for all the images from our last outing. So far we’ve had a great response from people and would love to continue developing this to include more and more Queens Park/Kensal Rise locals. Our goal is to have an exhibition somewhere in the area… So stay tuned.
Local photographers who would like to know more about their group please drop Mark an email.
‘Or stop by on Saturday and say hello – we’ll be in the brand new covered terrace area upstairs. Should be a fun!
Many thanks to Park Life for giving us the opportunity to come along to the Kensal Flea this Saturday 30 November and help support some local charities.’
