Knit-In, London, Royal Festival Hall Riverside Cafe by BBC Radio 3 pop-up studio
Join Jane Lawrence for a WW1 Knit-In at Royal Festival Hall Riverside Cafe by BBC Radio 3 pop-up studio. London.
Date: Monday 24th March
Time: From 1.30 p.m. Hope to continue until 6.30 so we catch In Tune with Sean Rafferty who has helped promote the WW1 knitting project
Bring: Needles if you have them, any wool in muted colours
Beginners: There’ll be people around who can get you started with knitting
Anyone is welcome to drop in with their knitting for this highly informal session of knitting, chatting, listening and watching the presenters at work. Headphones are provided for listening to the broadcasts. Beginners are welcome and Jane has prepared several sets of needles with the beginnings of a garter stitch scarf ready for people to have a go. We do appreciate that this is very short notice but if any of you can make it, that would be great. The RFH is 6 minutes from London Waterloo and just across the river from Charing Cross Station.
