From Roman's to Canary Girls to The Premier League. Through wars, politics, trade unions and co-operatives. This is the story of Woolwich.

26/06/2021

On the 3rd July in Artillery Square, from 12pm and 3pm, set atop a towering scaffolding is 'On Edge', the adrenaline fuelled gravity defying show that reveals the modern slavery problem under our nose!

The show, which is free to all, combines highly physical parkour and compelling theatre to tell a gripping story hidden in the shadows of the construction industry. A team of international collaborators, parkour athletes and performers present a visually stunning, breathtaking and entertaining piece of theatre.

Check out this video and come by. We're so excited!

We have published three new dates for Royal Arsenal History Tours. Woolwich has such and amazing history, but it is often overshadowed by its rich and famous cousin Greenwich. From a Roman settlement to the birthplace of The Royal Regiment of Artillery and Arsenal F.C. With an important role in the emancipation of women and the co-operative movement. We love shining a light on such an amazing location for the history of Britain.

This scene of the Royal Military Academy (Building 40) was painted by Paul Sandby, the father of the English watercolour around 1785-1795. It still shows the old tower from the previous building which is no longer there. Both buildings and the artist feature in the upcoming Royal Arsenal Tours.

We are so excited that tours of the Royal Arsenal will be coming back after the 12th April when outdoor activities are allowed. Numbers of tickets available will be limited to 10 people per tour (normally 30) to allow for social distance so it is likely they will sell out. Tickets go on sale Sunday 28th February in the evening. If the Government Roadmap is delayed don't worry, you can have either a full refund or exchange for a future date, your choice. Don't know about everyone else, but we are counting the days until we can safely get out and do things again.

We will meet again and tours will start again, one day.

With us all in Lockdown 2.0 lets wear our poppies on our homes this year in remembrance of those who lost their lives for our freedom and to support injured personnel and armed forces families.

https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/

The Legion is here to help members of the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force, veterans and their families. And we’re not going anywhere.

01/11/2020

We have cancelled the final tour this year as it was due to take place during #Lockdown2 .

Hopefully we will be able to start again in 2021, but there are none scheduled at present. We would like to thank all our followers and past tour attendees.
