SOCIAL PROGRAMME

Our social programme is one of the things that makes Zebra unique. We want to give residents a great experience when the they stay with Zebra and an understanding of London and the UK. Sampling the culture and life of London is an essential part of that experience. We want residents to have fond memories of London and to have created enduring friendships and understanding throughout the world. If you have any ideas or suggestions about how we can further enhance the social programme let Steve know. Stevem@zebrahousing.com

Additionally we’ll be refurbishing the stairwell at 34 Chalcot to include new lighting and replacing the fire detection equipment at 8 Chalcot. There is also a lot of additional although minor work that we intend to carry out across all buildings to improve our Health and Safety regime as well as continuing our programme of bathroom and kitchen replacement.

We’ve got a limited number of tickets for this exhibition, with a face value of £20 and we are making them available to you £16.00

This is largest collection of Van Gogh’s paintings to be exhibited in the UK for nearly a decade. Some of his most famous works will be brought together from around the world – including Shoes, Starry Night on the Rhône, L’Arlésienne, and the very rarely lent Sunflowers from London’s National Gallery.

Van Gogh lived in England as a young man for several crucial years. He walked the streets alone, dreaming of the future. He fell in love with British culture, especially the novels of Charles Dickens and George Eliot and he was inspired by the art he saw here.
