Event description

Description

St Ann's Hospital has many rare and unusual trees set in grounds designed to promote health and well-being. The abandoned heritage buildings and water tower distil the spirit of Victorian architecture.

Built as a fever hospital in 1892, the hospital has had a varied history. This includes having one of the first UK trained black doctors on the staff in 1907, treating American WWI soldiers, Tottenham football players and pop stars but also it has WW2 graffiti, was formerly owned by the Knights of St John and had its own underground water spring.

In the present day StART Haringey as an community led group promotes principles of sustainable and affordable housing for the current site development plans .

No drawing experience is needed, all ages welcome, and the sessions are flexible - come for one hour, join us later or come for the whole session.

Please bring your own drawing materials and dress appropriately for being outdoors in any weather. A folding chair or ground rug may be desirable. If raining we will draw outside under cover.

Meeting Place: Chestnuts Café,Chestnut Park, St Ann’s Road, London N15 5TH. (Meet at tables under the covered area outside the cafe)

Location/map of the day’s drawing activity will be left on the tables at the meeting place for late comers or contact 07517 523 395.
