If the work is finished in time, this is the schedule for the opening events: - Thursday 8 June The Lighting the Bridge ceremony will take place in the evening, culminating in a firework display at 10.30pm. - Saturday 10 June The first users of the bridge will be the participants in the HSBC Millennium Bridge walk in aid of Save the Children. See <http://www.savethechildren.org.uk> for details. From 9.30pm a spectacular River of Lanterns procession will cross the bridge, with lanterns made by local schools and community groups. One of the two official Millennium Bridge exhibitions this month can be found at the.gallery@oxo until Sunday 11 June. Atmospheric black and white photographs by Julian Anderson provide a valuable record of the bridge's construction. There is also a corner devoted to Bridgeheads work by pupils of Charles Dickens School. Mock-ups of the balustrade and handrail as well as the steel cable that supports the bridge can be seen along with Norman Foster's early sketches and more detailed architectural plans. The before-and-after aerial photographs show how the new bridge has changed this section of the river. See <http://www.London-SE1.co.uk/events/gallery-oxo.html> Also this month there's an opportunity to see images of the construction process as recorded by Ron Sandford. Works by Sandford, the artist commissioned to record the building of the bridge from start to finish, go on display this month at Cottons Atrium in Tooley Street. Sandford's work, which includes drawings, lithographs and watercolours, was sponsored by Drivers Jonas. The Bridge Building exhibition runs from Tuesday 6 to Saturday 24 June. Cottons Atrium is open daily 10am-6pm and admission is free. Other Millennium Bridge events include bridge-making workshops at Oxo Tower Wharf next Saturday - see <http://www.London-SE1.co.uk/events/coinstreet.html> ======================================================= >> C O N T A C T D E T A I L S ======================================================= [SE1 Direct] Editor: James Hatts <email@example.com> Bankside Press, PO Box 16560, London SE1 0YP Tel 020 7633 0766 - Fax 020 7620 4356 Web <http://www.London-SE1.co.uk> SE1 Direct is copyright (c) 2000 Bankside Press Design with thanks to Absolute Ezines <http://www.writead.com>
