A fun day promising “outdoor adventures, art and end of summer play” is taking place on the River Lee Navigation this Thursday (24th).

The Hinterlands Summer Event is part of Canal and River Trust’s Hinterlands London arts programme which is “engaging communities and creatively transforming” the canal that runs through Edmonton and Tottenham.

Running all day from 10am until 8pm at various locations along the Lee Navigation, activities start at Stonebridge Lock with a toddler and children foraging workshop, wildflower seeding, guided walks and canoeing. From Chalk Bridge there will be an artist transforming the bridge through Raynham School pupils’ amazing artwork.

Barge Fiodra will become a floating camera obscura experience with free workshops, heading towards Bloqs in Edmonton where there will be a free family activity with overhead projectors, outdoor drawing, sculpture, sound installations to explore and more foraging and artist making workshops.
