1st Friday

From Wasteland to Wasteland

2nd June,
From 18.30 at Marine Studios

Margate's long-running social explores the work of a group of artists inspired by the First World War and TS Eliot. Starting with the dramatic Lochnagar Crater site in France, and the stories behind it, Dawn Cole, Dan Thompson, Helder Clara, Graham Ward and Lorna Dallas-Conte are working on the From Wasteland to Wasteland project. Together, they've visited the battlefield site, drawn connections with TS Eliot’s poem The Waste Land, and made new work as a response. This First Friday showcases that work, and the research behind it, for the first time.

Richard Dunning MBE, owner of Lochnagar Crater will be giving a talk during the evening.

Bring your own refreshments.

Also open Saturday 3rd June 11am - 3pm

More about 1st Fridays

The world’s fascinating, but we can all get stale. So join our community of the curious.

We put on events because we’re curious about the world and we believe that events bring communities together.


We’ve run 1st Fridays most months since November 2009.
Previous First Friday events have included performances, book launches, films, exhibitions, talks, installations and even picnics.


If you’d like to stage a 1st Friday (particularly if it touches on the link between science and art) just drop us an email.
