Emergency Pumping Operations

This morning, at approximately 9am, a blockage occurred in the local Thames
Water sewer network along John Islip Street. Upon inspection, the cause of the
blockage was found to be fatty deposits that had built up over a prolonged period of

The result of this network failure is that a large volume of sewage from the local
area has ended up in the basement of Abell House.

Unfortunately there will be on-going emergency operations happening this evening
to remedy the situation, both involving the flushing of the drain and the cleaning up
of raw sewage from in and around the site. For obvious health and safety reasons
this must be effected immediately. The work is likely to involve pumping operations
into a tanker located in the John Islip Street pit-lane.

Please accept our apologies for any disturbance this may cause you. We will try to
keep any noise levels to a minimum and trust that you will appreciate the urgent
and unavoidable nature of these works.

Should you have any further queries regarding the above please do not hesitate to
contact David MacFarlane of SP Broadway on 0203 405 1400 /

Tate Britain RadioCity project – join in!

The Families’ team are right in the middle of a really exciting project called RadioCity, a special season of participatory radio, sound art, performance and broadcast at Tate Britain – inviting all ages to drop-in, take part and listen.

We’d like to let you know more about it so that you can drop in at some stage to see what’s happening and participate. We’re also offering free tickets to Tate exhibitions as part of your visit.

Please see below a list of the upcoming projects and how you can get involved. Contact us for more information, or simply turn up!

Flights of Passage, Sutapa Biswas
Monday 26 – Friday 30 January, 11.00 – 16.00

Drop into the Learning Gallery to discuss saris and symbolism, home and ‘belonging’, and the stories that clothing and objects tell.

Bring along an item of clothing or object that means something to you, or just turn up (see call for participation attached; book in at the link below).

Sutapa will be building a new sonic alphabet based on her conversations with people over the course of the week, played back on the final day of her residency.

Listening Room, Iris Garrelfs
Monday 2 – Friday 6 February

Bring along objects and stories around the theme of ‘hearing’.  These might be pictures, stones, sticks, in fact anything you like!
Iris will be recording your stories and editing them into a sound installation, for everyone to hear on the last day of the residency.

Mission to the Land of Misplaced Memories, Gaylene Gould and Dubmorphology/ WriteTalkListen
Wednesday 11 – 15 February

Meet Anamnesis and her crew who are collecting and sonically re-master the memories of invited experts, gallery visitors and Tate Britain.

You are invited on board the SS Sugar Ship to join the discussion, retrieving your own lost memories and contributing your recollections to the sonic data bank.

If you can’t drop in in person, we’re broadcasting excerpts from the residencies every Tuesday at 4pm on Resonance 104.5FM (repeated every Saturday, 330pm).

Looking forward to seeing you at Tate Britain soon.
