I would thoroughly recommend visiting this Free museum, it is very informative, well executed and a generally interesting place to visit. Paying £4 to see the almshouses laid out as they would have been when in use was worth every penny. So informative and again well done. Lots of notices etc to read about what life was like in the Almshouses, who commissioned them etc. The guides too were friendly and knowledgeable. Now to the downside. We arrived early and had a great cup of coffee.

The current temporary exhibition covers local screen printing and it really brings to life the diversity of this part of London through examples of campaigns and causes supported over the years. The permanent exhibition is always worth a look the scope is really comprehensive and there is a good mix of written/oral history v.s. artefacts. No matter what your age or ethnicity is, you will find something of interest. This is a relatively low budget museum on the ground floor of Hackney Library.

I've seen a pantomime at Hackney Empire and a show from Radio 2 called Friday Night is Music night based on the music of Nelson Riddle. Both shows were equally enjoyable so a play about Marvin Gaye's final days held more than a passing interest to me. I was very impressed with the cast and set changes were slick and executed very slickly. There was not one actor or actress that lacked credibility in this somewhat tragic tale of a complicated man. Congratulations to all involved, Well Done!
