As the end of August looms nearer, it can easily feel like summer is also coming to an end, especially for students starting a new academic year. However, we would like to take this opportunity to remind you that summer Events Near YOU does not officially end for over a month.
Here are some things you can do to make the most of the next few weeks before September comes around and MRC students bury themselves in books again!
Sunday Morning Tudor House Visits!
The National Trusts provide the perfect opportunity to explore one of Hackney’s oldest residences.
Sutton House had a 500-year history. There is no booking required – you are just a small admission fee away from walking around oak-paneled floors, with original carved fireplaces and windows and getting a real feel for how a prominent Tudor family lived.
