Thames World - Liquid History 19-22 June

A live promenade performance along the banks of the Thames, following the Thames Path in Greenwich from the Ahoy Sailing Centre, Deptford, celebrating an epic history of the Thames that runs and runs...

Says the publicity referring to the river, but you'll have to be quick to catch this before it runs out...incidentally Tuesday's 22nd June performance commemorates the Empire Windrush's docking at Tilbury – ain't that neat when you're looking at the stories of immigrants interwoven with working class dockers? Sounds like a cue for a song: Waterloo Sunset, some Irish jigs, some calypso and ska...

Saturday June 19: 2.30pm
Sunday June 20: 3pm
Tuesday June 22: 6pm prompt 
Tickets £5, numbers limited, 10 years +
Reserve tickets:  or

Meeting point for the Promenade: The Hoy, 193 Creek Road, London, SE8 3BU.
Wear flat shoes! (says the publicity, but really you need old trainers, those pebbles are hard, plus a hoodie or an umbrella, it is Wimbledon, innit)

More editor's notes: this will be a great way to experience Deptford/Greenwich beach, though you could do this any time if you knew the tides, without a load of theatrical types shoving history down yer throat whilst singing. No, honestly, this will be fun and a unique experience! 
(It is also worth noting that it is brought to you by the original team who founded and built The Albany)
