In their second annual Sustainability Week the Hospital Club have an exciting lineup of urban foraging, citizenship dinners, eco films every night, secret dance performances, philosophy for children, poetry, musical cabaret, mad hatters breakfasts and lots more. Bring your friends, bring your children and join the debate on #planettalk.

If you would like to hear more about my time in Bali with the Marine Foundation I will be giving a breakfast talk with Founder and Artist Celia Gregory on using creativity and stunning visuals as a catalyst for marine conservation with a first UK preview Apsara: Spirits of the Sea . An exhibition of photography from the making and sinking of Apsara will be displayed in the Gallery until 6pm.

Here is a sneak preview of what we were up to and hope to see you all there
