Change4Life summer roadshow

Date: 08 July 2014 - 07 September 2014

Every day

Location: Venues across Royal Greenwich

Cost: Free

This fun touring roadshow will help families to get active and eat healthily this summer.

The Royal Borough of Greenwich has teamed up with Change4Life and Charlton Athletic Community Trust to present this inspiring new healthy living roadshow, which features everyone's favourite Disney characters to encourage kids to get their recommended 60 minutes of movement a day. 

Our friendly, trained advisers will be there to help you with eating well, moving more and introducing you to loads of free, family activities that are available around the borough for summer and beyond. Join in with fun food and activity demos on-board too! You can even set a goal if you want, either as a family or individually, to be healthier and have fun at the same time.

If you sign up at the roadshow you'll receive a free pack in the post, which includes a free stopwatch and loads of Disney themed goodies, as well as an extra special summer surprise.

Fans and the Art of Advertising

Date: 03 June 2014 - 28 September 2014

Every day

Location: The Fan Museum, 12 Crooms Hill, Greenwich, SE10 8ER

Time: 11:00am - 5:00pm

Cost: Adult £4, Concession £3, Family £10

The Fan Museum shows the pivotal role of fans in advertising and consumer culture.

In the growing consumer culture of the early 20th century, fans displayed seductive designs, Art Deco elegance, and works by renowned fashion illustrators. 

The exhibition, Seduced! Fans and the Art of Advertising, reveals the important role of commercial art in generating and sustaining a culture of consumption among the growing middle classes.

Focusing on the aesthetics of Art Deco, the exhibition includes a colourful array of fans made to promote leisure activities such as travel, dining and  shopping. These luxury fans evoke a remarkable age of decadence, glamour, exoticism and the birth of modern consumer culture.
