If you missed the launch screenings this weekend for the Sparked exhibition with Olympic Park Artist in Residence Neville Gabie, then don’t panic as we will be screening Twelve Seventy every Sunday for the duration of the Sparked exhibition.
Twelve Seventy is the new film from Neville Gabie featuring previously unseen footage of the Olympic Park Aquatics Centre and the wonderful story of Sam the bus driver, who was amongst the first to swim in the Olympic pool.
Screenings of the 27 minute long film are upstairs at View Tube every Sunday until 18 March at 1pm and 1.45pm, no booking is necessary.
Sparked with Neville Gabie is open daily at View Tube from 9am-5pm until 18th March 2012. Entry is free. A free family day runs as part of this exhibition on Saturday 18 February from 10am-3pm.
The View Tube and Container Cafe are closed for a well earned Christmas break from 24th December. We’ll be back bright eyed and bushy tailed from 3rd January 2012, where you can catch the last few weeks of Tomas Klassnik and Riitta Ikonen’s exhibition ‘From Factories to Flowers’, as part of the Sparked exhibition series.
Hot off the press, we’re excited to announce Saturday December 3rd as the date to put in your diaries for the first ever family day for the Sparked project!
Many more details to follow, including information about all the activities taking place on that day, but rest assured there will be plenty for you and your family to get involved with, including (but not limited to) creative workshops, exhibition activities, festive fun plus all the usual things View Tube has to offer.
