Description

This is now FULLY SOLD OUT. But keep an eye out, as more Inside Islington Tours will be coming soon!

Inside Islington tour of 'Home Ground' Saturday Socials activities at the Emirates Stadium

A not so hidden history of Arsenal behind the scenes, featuring a performance of spoken word and short films from All Change's Saturday Socials writers group - 'When Saturday Comes' working with poet Francesca Beard and photography artist Laticia Valverdes. Plus dancing, pop-up creative workshops, a chance to take a special tour of the stadium, and an opportunity to record your own Islington story.

The event will also see the premiere exhibition of 'Arsenal Is', a photo poem created by older men at The Mildmays extra care centre, working with poet Simon Mole and photography artist Sarah Ainslie - plus performances from Thornhill Primary School pupils and Paul Lyalls.

This is a great opportunity to get an insiders look at Arsenal's famous home ground, and to find out more about social and arts activities supported by Islington Giving and the Arsenal Foundation.
