This week we had some maintenance and repairs done to our street signs, essential for enabling people to find us easily.

Our new exhibition is "A postcard from London's Canals" and it showcases our archive collection of postcards of London's waterways, many of them never having been exhibited before. Postcards were popular for short messages in the early 20th Century and the canals were, then as now, seen as picturesque subjects to appear on one side whilst the message and address were written on the other side. Until late 2018

We are looking forward to another atmospheric and unusual performance of music and dance. On 19th May 2018 we once again welcome Nomòi, an Italian Contemporary Ensemble, who will give a performance by Rosolino Di Salvo entitled The sun in Ulysses. It will be an enchanting, and unusual musical poem in the atmospheric surroundings of the London Canal Museum, celebrating Museums at Night 2018. Places are limited and last year we had the same ensemble and sold out, so do book online in advance. Colour picture is from last year. Monochrome pictures are of the rehearsals for this year.

Tonight at 1930, an illustrated talk by Tony Conder: "Canal People", which promises to be a fascinating insight into the lives of the canal workers in the working days. Tony is the former Curator of the National Waterways Museum.

We're recruiting. We are looking for some more people to be on the guiding team this summer, especially for guiding tunnel boat trips on selected Thursdays and Sundays. Do you like history, canals, or a bit of both? Can you talk to small groups about history in an informal way? Have a look at our page on guiding:
http://www.canalmuseum.org.uk/volunteering/guides.htm
and download the role description, then get in touch with our Volunteering and Training Manager. A great way to get afloat this year and enjoy sharing your knowledge with others. We'll be providing training so don't worry if you don't think you know enough - you will.
