Design Africa: Make an African fabric cushion!

<p>In this workshop you will learn the basics of cushion making. You will choose from our selection of African fabrics or bring your own along if you prefer or have a definite colour scheme in mind.

You will leave this workshop with a beautiful vibrant cushion (complete with cushion insert!) that will brighten up any sofa, chair or bed!<br /> Workshop fees include all materials, handouts and refreshments!</p>

Breaking the Code - Streatham Theatre Company

<p>Breaking the Code by Hugh Whitemore, based on the book ‘Alan Turing: The Enigma’ by Alan Hodges<br /> “In the long run, it’s not breaking the code that matters – it’s where you go from there. That’s the real problem.”<br /> Alan Turing was the eccentric genius who helped break the complex German Enigma code, playing a major role in the winning of WW II. After the war Turing turned his scientific and mathematical genius to the concept of developing an ‘electronic brain’; the first computer which ultimately lead to today's smart phones and tablets.<br />
