It has long been planned for View Tube to close over the summer months whilst the Olympics are on, reopening in September 2012. To celebrate the success of View Tube, a family fun day takes place on Saturday May 12th, from 10am-4pm. Along with lots of stalls, activities, and special Olympic guests, Sparked are delighted to be involved, offering more free art workshops for families. Lemn Sissay will also be there to talk about Spark Catchers, and give public readings of the poem.
The Greenway has now been closed, so access to View Tube is only via Marshgate Lane (E15 2PJ). Due to engineering works on the DLR, you will not be able to alight at Pudding Mill Lane. However, a rail replacement bus service is running, or you can easily hop on one of many buses, only 5 minutes from Stratford (25, 108, 276, 339, 425, D8, stop Marshgate Lane or Bow Flyover), or travel by bike or on foot.
Use www.tfl.gov.uk to plan your journey.
We’re absolutely delighted to announce that View Tube are working with renowned poet Lemn Sissay for the final exhibition in the Sparked series. Working with curators from Jotta, Lemn’s exhibition will be inspired by his poem Spark Catchers, commissioned for Art in the Park as part of the Winning Words project.
Opening on March 24th at View Tube.
