Hello and welcome to the September newsletter! Once again I’ll be highlighting various events taking place this month in my own unique way. I hope you’ve all enjoyed summers whether in the office or lying on a beach chillaxing.
Do you like architecture? Do you also like design? Do you like free events? Then Open House London 2015 is for you! It is the capital’s largest annual festival of architecture and design, taking place on 19th & 20th September 2015. It is a rare chance to explore the cities eclectic and best architectural landmarks. Buildings surround us in a city but the one thing we don’t learn about in schools is the fabric of a place, such as the structure, framework or composition. The urban fabric of our community has such a strong impact on us on an everyday basis.

Matches take place in thirteen of the best sporting venues across the country.
