Mindful March at Merchant Square, Paddington
Merchant Square are embracing inner peace this March with a programme of activities designed to channel calming thoughts, promote healthy living and encourage creativity. On board the Barge Fiodra you will be able to try your hand at yoga, poetry, theatre, art and enjoy film screenings in this alternative micro-cinema touring our waterways. Hop aboard for a beer and some gourmet popcorn in the cosy Saloon Cinema.
The month was due to start with the launch of 180 floating origami boats on 1 March. Due to the inclement weather, the launch date has been postponed to later in the month. Designed by artist Steve Messam, the flotilla will be unveiled at the Floating Pocket Park. The boats will change colour; creating a calming, trance-like sequence of light reflected in the water.
Be sure to book tickets to participate in the varied programme of exercise, talks and screenings.
