About cressida

Over the course of an afternoon a pile of flat packed cardboard boxes was transformed into a colourful city. Dream like houses with roofs made from umbrellas and rainbow organza popped up over the farm. Buckets of paint got sloshed over the grass as the children painted the walls of their paper houses with the care of professional painters. This was the second of our free Wednesday Funday events, come down next week for our Go Wild at Mudchute Day starting at 11am and going on till 3pm.

Here are some photos of our annual banquet. Gentle music and heady heat of a summers evening filled the air, as our guests drank pimms and enjoyed the goat race. The crowd was then led to a marquee adorned with flowers and a silver service, here a raffle and an auction took place as fine dining food was laid before the audience. The evening was completed in the barn, with a good old fashioned barn dance and cocktail. Even though the night was full of fun and games, it had more serious undertones as money was raised for; a milking cow, new roof for pets corner and money to pay for a classroom. We would like to thank everybody who came both the guests and others who donated their time, it’s thanks to you the Mudchute Park and Farm can keep running. Thanks also to Evgeny Semeykin for capturing the evening so beautifully on camera, to see his full set please follow the link.
