A Season of Celebrations
While sports enthusiasts will be looking forward to London becoming the Olympic capital of the world in July, there is a great deal more going on across the City to make this a summer to remember. A special season of cultural activities will accompany the Olympics and the LJCC will be playing its part.
2012 is the centenary of Anna Pavlova making Ivy House her home. She was a remarkable, talented woman and her influence on the arts and the world of dance is very much alive. The LJCC will be honouring her legacy with Pavlova 2012, a number of special events including workshops, talks and performances, highlighting her continuing inspirations. We know it will attract ballet enthusiasts from across the globe as we receive visits and calls from her fans every week.
'An Intimate Evening with Anna Pavlova at the Royal Opera House' on Sunday 17th June and 'Dance for a Day' on Sunday 3rd June are just two highlights of the programme.
Queen Elizabeth II is also celebrating her extraordinary life of service and achievement. Our Pavlova 2012 exhibition of archive photographs and memorabilia will becomes part of her Diamond Jubilee celebrations of Bank Holiday Monday 4th June. We will be opening Ivy House to the community as part of the City of London Corporation and the Borough of Barnet festivities. Over 10,000 people are expected to gather in Golders Hill Park for an amazing day of performances, picnics, beacon lighting and fireworks late into the night. We are delighted to participate and to offer our kosher café facilities to the Jewish community visiting the Park.
And, our new summer programme is coming out in the next few weeks, with the widest range of courses, events and activities for you to enjoy, including Gefiltefest, the Jewish Food Festival, and the announcement of our second Community Art Fair, Art House. If you are not on our mailing list and would like to be added, please email email@example.com with your details.
We look forward to welcoming you to a memorable summer.
