Discover’s Christmas show, Ready Steady Colour’s Christmas Feast!

Step into a pop-up restaurant, order your black and white ‘Christmas dinner’ and get colouring! Decorate your plate with glittery salt and pepper or red paint cranberry sauce, while the restaurant’s colourful waiting staff entertain you with their unique blend of storytelling, comedy and music. Poor Robin, the guitar playing waiter, has lost his Christmas spirit and needs help finding it, and the head chef is at the end of her tether……so who could possibly help save the day?

Please get in touch if you would like any further information, images or tickets to any of these events. We will be holding press performances on Tuesday 29 November at 10:30am & 12:30pm.

Afternoon All, There is a great opportunity to get involved with the regeneration of the waterway’s within the Olympic Park. Have a look at this following statement and decide if you would like to be involved as a volunteer for this great initiative.

There will be roles including supporting and running events, supporting the schools programme, social media promotion, heritage learning and promotion and being a representative for activities or interest in the waterways.

The restoration (to be completed in Spring 2017) will re-open the waterways in Queen Elizabeth Olympic park and create plenty of new opportunities for boaters and visitors. We’re asking you to be part of a new friends group who will champion the newly restored Carpenters Road Lock and wider Bow Back rivers.

As part of the friends group, you will have also a chance to see behind the scenes of the most existing construction programmes in London, and a great insight into Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. The group will also sit under the ‘Park Panel’ (a forum of local Park stakeholders and businesses), which will offer further training, development and networking opportunities, whilst allowing the group to act as a voice for the waterways in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Skills required
No experience in necessary, but a commitment of 2-3 hours a week over the next 6 months would be expected. Please contact Joanna Steele at Joanna.steele@canalrivertrust.org.uk by 27th January 2017, and we will reply by 30th January 2017.
