On our next sketching day we will be going to Leadenhall Market, Gracechurch Street, in the City. This new venue offers cover against rain, as well as monumental Victorian ironmongery, glass and arches. Parts of the market also featured in the Harry Potter films, so yet again there are possibilities for fantasy art. More details and a map here:
We will meet at 11 o’clock under the Central glass roof lantern. This links the various covered roads and passages, principally Central Avenue which runs from the Gracechurch Street entrance.
We suggest you bring sketching stools as all the seats will be associated with cafes/restaurants.
Nearest Underground/DLR Stations: Monument (4 minute walk), Bank (5 minute walk), Cannon Street (7 minute walk), Aldgate (9 minute walk), Liverpool Street (9 minute walk) Please don’t go to the Leadenhall Building nearby, because that is a different temple to mammon and not the market building.
Sue’s phone number for the day is 07975 864142. We look forward to seeing you all.
