 LOCAL EVENTS FOR 2020

Due to the Coronavirus there are no events taking place in the Harrow area. This page will be updated once restrictions have been lifted.

MAY 2020

From now until 31 May: Heath Robinson Museum: Charles Keeping – Londoner and Illustrator. Charles Keeping, one of the most influential of modern British book illustrators, died in 1988. The exhibition celebrates his life and work. Keeping was a Londoner through and through, and his childhood in Lambeth provided him with an endlessly rich stock of images to draw on throughout his working life. But his vision was universal, individual and often disturbing. It has been argued that the strength and honesty of everything he undertook changed the face of British children’s book illustration. His work was highly original and often had a strong element of the macabre.

10 May: Harrow-Hatch End Triathlon at 8am to 5pm. Swim/Bike/Run. Beginner friendly distances for adults – 400m swim, 17km bike, 3km run. Indoor pool swim. 5 race categories for juniors, ages 8-16. Volunteers and marshals also needed. For more information visit www.hatchendtri.com.
