Easter egg rolling - game on!


Who’s up for….

Some Easter fun?

A healthy Easter competition?

Some Easter craft?

Tempting………….well, we thought we would introduce ‘Easter Egg Rolling’!

On Wednesday 17th April at 1pm we will transform the kitchen into a creative corner where you will have 10 minutes to decorate your egg (we will provide hard boiled eggs) before going out into Queen Square to start the race (approx 1.15pm).

There will be prizes for the best egg and the overall winner!


Facts: Egg rolling, or an Easter egg roll is a traditional game played with eggs at Easter. Different nations have different versions of the game, usually played with hard-boiled, decorated eggs.  In the UK the tradition of rolling decorated eggs down grassy hills goes back hundreds of years and is known as "pace-egging".  The eggs traditionally were wrapped in onion skins and boiled to give them a mottled gold appearance (although today they usually are painted) and the children competed to see who could roll their egg the farthest.

 We hope you will be able to join us!

Building Bloomberg with Michael Jones, Foster + Partners

Discover how a meeting of minds between a visionary client and exemplary architects led to the UK's best new building.

In 2018 Bloomberg’s European headquarters was named the UK’s best new building, winning the RIBA Stirling Prize.

Built in the heart of the city of London overlooking St Pauls, the elegant pair of 10-storey stone clad buildings occupy a site originally earmarked for a 22-storey glass tower. Opening up an ancient Roman route and creating new public spaces the buildings aim to be good neighbours to the surounding city.

Behind the elegant facades lie a wealth of technology providing exemplary spaces to work, meet and stroll through whilst minimising water and energy use.

On the future: prospects for humanity


Martin Rees

Humanity has reached a critical moment. Our world is unsettled and rapidly changing, and we face existential risks over the next century. Various outcomes—good and bad—are possible. Yet our approach to the future is characterised by short-term thinking, polarising debates, alarmist rhetoric and pessimism. Renowned scientist and bestselling author Martin Rees argues that humanity’s prospects depend on our taking a very different approach to planning for tomorrow.

The future of humanity is bound to the future of science and hinges on how successfully we harness technological advances to address our challenges. If we are to use science to solve our problems while avoiding its dystopian risks, we must think rationally, globally, collectively and optimistically about the long term. Advances in biotechnology, cybertechnology, robotics and artificial intelligence—if pursued and applied wisely—could empower us to boost the developing and developed world and overcome the threats humanity faces on Earth, from climate change to nuclear war. At the same time, further advances in space science will allow humans to explore the solar system and beyond with robots and AI. But there is no ‘Plan B’ for Earth—no viable alternative within reach if we do not care for our home planet.

With fascinating insights into cutting-edge science and technology, Martin Rees examines the critical issues that will define the future of humanity on Earth and beyond.
