Firstly THE BOUTIQUE MARKET at The Rocket Pub from 12 midday. This is a craft market which has been running for 3 years now and is a great showcase for local creatives and a good place to pick up some gifts.
There is also the launch of BEHIND W3, Acton Central's 2013 Calendar. Acton’s local businesses, groups and personalities (including a prominent vicar and a well-known actor) have come together to create a charity calendar that shows off the local community’s talent and humour in a series of portraits of Acton, W3. The calendar has been influenced by iconic images from film, music and literature; from 1970s slapstick to the quiet composition of Edward Hopper’s paintings; from a cheeky homage to home decorating with Fifty Shades of Grey to a known stylist turned Edward Scissorhands.
