Visit the Olympic Park

We will meet at the Stratford Station entrance to the Olympic Park (on Stratford Walk off Westfield Avenue).  This is opposite the Westfield shopping centre.  We have sketched the park from the outside a number of times as it was being built.  Now is the chance to see it from the inside.  There is the opportunity to draw some interesting buildings but  also people and street scenes.  The park is big so be prepared to do some walking!  If it rains then the shopping centre can provide some shelter.  There are eating places within the park but it may be  quite crowded - depending on the weather of course.  There are also picnic areas so it might be an idea to bring along sandwiches to avoid queuing.  We will meet up at 4.00 pm and adjourn to a local pub to review our work over a drink.  My mobile number is[masked] if you miss us at the start or want to catch up later.  Stratford has a good transport links but check with tfl for any engineering works.

    I like the site and the group.
    I just feel,that there is so much space with very little to see.
    The group always a 5 but for my drawing only a 2.

    Sue - either station will work. If you follow the link to the Olympic park website in my setup comments and look at the map you will see that they call the entrance the Stratford station entrance even though it is not actually at the station itself. In fact the international station is slightly nearer. When you arrive at any station in Stratford just follow the signs for the Olympic park. Or ring or text me if it is not clear on the day - 07710976046.

    I really enjoyed the Sketch Soho a few weeks ago but unfortunately I can't make this one. I'm hoping it will be followed by another event before long.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
