Open Guardian Weekend in Pictures

The Guardian building at King's Place

An aesthetically pleasing environment is something that’s conducive to all work, particularly in the field of creativity, and indeed education.

The Guardian canteen

The Guardian opened its doors to many areas of its building, and many of the participants in the weekend took advantage of being able to eat in this pleasant canteen that overlooks the Regent’s Canal.

The Book Barge and the activities provided by The Eden Project

Not only were there plenty of interactive talks to attend, but there were also activities taking place outside in the unseasonably warm weather.

The many areas of floor to ceiling glass gives an extremely open feeling to the whole place.

Looking down from the corridor outside the canteen, you could see the buzz of activity taking place all weekend. There were plenty of places to sit. A stage was set up for poetry readers and musicians, and on the left of this photograph you can see the drawing and writing wall which reflected some of the activities and themes of the weekend.

Thank goodness for the Guardian!
