BOATS MAY NOT BE MOORED TO THIS NOTICE, the 1st Annual Group Photograph, happened in this building – The Annexe of Central Saint Martins. Time has passed, Central Saint Martins has gone to Kings Cross and Foyles Bookshop, next door to the right, is moving into the vacated College building. The Annexe, between the two buildings is waiting for its future. For ROWING HOME, we return to the exact location of the 1st Annual Group Photograph. We will journey through the now empty rooms of the Annexe and see what it all looks like 15 years later.

A Fanfare for Dublin is being planned. This one will be at the end of Grafton St. looking on to St. Stephen’s Green. The acoustic sound is the most challenging to date! Possible instruments: acoustic violins and percussion.
