Easter/Equinox happenings

Various quirky and interesting happenings over the weekend...

Utrophia Arts Network are putting on an Egg festival, starting tonight (Friday 21st, 6:30 pm) at their Deptford Properly cafe on Tanners Hill and going on until the full moon tomorrow morning at 6:40 am. There will be story telling, food, performances and medieval-style music from Walpurgis Night.

Tomorrow night they will be having a party at the Utrophia Project Space (136 Tanners Hill), then on Sunday 23rd there will be a marching band-led procession/egg trail from Deptford Properly (2 pm) to Friendly Gardens for fun and games including a maypole and egg and spoon space.

On Easter Monday meanwhile, Blackheath Morris Men observe their annual tradition event of "Chair Lifting" in which young women are lifted into the air in a chair with music, dancing and rinking along the way. You can catch them in Cutty Sark Gardens from about 1:00 pm to 3:30 pm and at various pubs in the area throughout the afternoon (more details from Richard at Baggage Reclaim).
