Summer Social 2017

Wednesday July 12th. 2017 at 2pm

Once again our Summer Social will be held where we will have exclusive use of the terrace bar from
12.00 midday until 3.00 p.m. If the weather is fine and sunny we'll be able to enjoy the view over the Thames towards St.Paul’s and the ghastly new buildings in the City, but at least it looks as if that rdiculous Garden Bridge won’t be built.

If it rains there’s plenty of room inside near the buffet and the bar. For those who haven’t been there before the Anchor is really close to some of favourite London locations - Southwark Cathedral (13th century), Borough Market (excellent views of the tourists and the foodie stalls), Tate Modern (good
for a laugh) the Golden Hind replica, the Globe Theatre, the Millennium Bridge and so much more.

Visit to the Royal Society of Arts

Wednesday 26th July 2017 at 12.30

The RSA - otherwise known as the Royal Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce - was founded by William Shipley in 1754.

For the first 100 years the Society encouraged innovation and excellence in Agriculture, Manufacture,
Chemistry, Mechanics, Polite Arts, Colonies and Trade through the Premium Award Scheme. It has had a long commitment to education - it has a growing family of RSA Academy schools - and to the environment starting with encouraging the reduction of smoke emissions as early as 1770.

The house was designed for the Society by Robert Adam in the early 1770s. Today the Georgian façade conceals many unexpected delights of traditional and contemporary architecture, including the Great Room with a frieze on The Progress of Human Knowledge and Culture painted by James Barry.
