From Richmond to Hampton Court Palace (with a quick pitstop to Eel Pie Island) What >>> This is an event for woman who are looking to escape the city noise (though this one is still technically in London) and reconnect in nature. The aim is just to get outdoors, move our bodies, and discover the lives of each other. Please come along if you are interested in health + wellness and looking to spend a Saturday meeting like-minded adventurers in the fresh air. Oh and there might be a thigh burn or two along the way. Where >>> The Thames Towpath (West): Richmond to Hampton Court Palace (15-18km, approx. 4hrs of hiking, easy-moderate) We will be meeting at Richmond station and making our way upriver along the Thames Towpath. Along the way we'll be browsing the likes of Ham House, taking a short £1 ferry to explore Eel Pie Island with the hopes of spotting an eel, having lunch at Canbury Gardens and making our way to Hampton Court Palace. When >>> Saturday, 30 March 2019, at 9:00am Cost >>> £13.00. This does not include train tickets or food on the day. Oyster cards are acceptable for both journeys and therefore train tickets are not included in the price of the hike. If you would like to further explore the palace (at the end of our hike) then I will look into a National Rail 2for1 offer and/or a group rate. Entrance to grounds is free but see the Royal Apartments we will need tickets (£19.30 per person). Please let me know when you book if you'd want this option. You can read more about the palace here. Please note we will be stopping at Canbury Gardens where you can buy lunch or grab a snack. Packed lunches are more than welcome, and if you're like me than you can always have a mid-hike cake instead. *** Most importantly: This is a hike to immerse yourself in the pleasantries of rustic English countryside and a hike for anyone who enjoys dipping into the historic boatlife culture of the Thames ***

While it's not widely known today, London has a remarkable history with spectacles.  Birthplace of the achromatic lens, the monocle, the Windsor rim, and the lorgnette, London's optical industry is one that has been characterised by growth, then decline, and now renewal.  In the final week of Cubitts' exhibition, RETROSPECTIVE: London, Spectacles, and Half a Millennia, Cubitts founder Tom Broughton, historian Neil Handley, and the godfather of spectacle design, Lawrence Jenkin, discuss the factors that led to the industry's fall and the forces that are helping to bring it back from the brink in our fair city. Please note this is an outdoor event. We advise you to wrap up warm in case the April weather fails us.

The audience will also be invited to participate in some interactive exercises to experience for themselves how synchronicity emerges.
