Tower Hamlets Council have decided that the Art Pavilion in Mile End Park is to be used for weddings instead of Art exhibitions every year from June to August inclusively and perhaps running into May and September.
A restricted report was considered by the King George’s Field Charity Board on the 29th of January in a meeting attended by only 3 of the 10 members of the board. They were Deputy Mayor Ohid Ahmed, Cabinet Member for Resources Alibor Choudhury and Cabinet Member for Environment Shahed Ali.
For many years the Art Pavilion was underused, but for the last two years or so it has been transformed by a volunteer curator, so that more often than not, there are free public exhibitions on every week. All this is due to end from the 1st of April to allow the necessary building work to begin.
If you have concerns regarding this change to the park please go along to the next Friends of Mile End Park Meeting on Thursday 10 April at 7.30 pm in the Eco Pavilion (as the Art Pavilion will be closed). Steve Murray, LBTH Head of Arts and Parks has confirmed he will attend.
