Slough will be celebrating at all our libraries AND at HOME Slough on the High Street on Saturday 5 October and you can get involved!

We would love to host people sharing anything from street dance, to knitting, to recipe swapping to leading a sing along. It could be offering a drop in discussing the best way to set up your fantasy football team or macramé (the art of knots). You could teach people about the  how to make a class project volcano or rocket, share your family history research methods or how to moonwalk like Michael Jackson.  We've already had some great offers for "Instant Shakespeare" and Dhol Drumming but we'd love to see more of you getting involved.

If you would like to get involved please get in touch by email on the.curve@slough.gov.uk and let us know what you'd like to do, when and where! The deadline to let us know about what you want to do is Saturday 5 September.
