The Green is Temporarily Closed – Information Inside (Updated on 02/10)

Update #1 – 02/10/17

Today we had an inspection by the architect that designed the building and a representative from the construction company that built it.
The outcome was fairly positive but so far nothing has really changed in terms of guarantees of when the centre will reopen.
We will continue to update you as soon as we have something.

Original Post – 29/09/2017

Dear users and friends of The Green Community Centre:

 

Unfortunately we had no option but to suspend all activities at The Green due to Health and Safety concerns. The Centre will remain closed at least until Tuesday 5th of October.

We are in the process of addressing the issues and need to be assured that the Centre is a safe place for all users, staff and volunteers.

As soon as we have more news we will share with you.

Please check our website www.thegreennunhead.org (we will update this post with news as they arrive) or alternatively follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest updates.

Nunhead Art Trail @ The Green

Nunhead Art Trail is an annual event that gives local artists the opportunity to showcase their work in their homes or studios. It’s a really fun day out navigating yourself around numerous venues using the Nunhead Art trail map to explore, meet the talented folk of Nunhead and even buy their art.

This year, The Green is proud to announce that it will be hosting an exhibition of art made by children during our Arts Workshop, in which they responded experimentally to music, movement , silence, the body and colour, and the result will be on display for everyone to see.

We will also be home to Fragma, a photography collective Fragma – Andreia Neves Nunes, Antonio Rendeiro, Claudia Florencio, Paula Alves and Rodolfo Gil – that emerged from a common interest about the subject of image, intersecting the contemporary, yet distinct visions of their authors.

Don’t miss it! This Saturday 23rd from 11 am to 6 pm and Sunday 24th from 1 pm to 6 pm.
