This is the official one, run by the “Friends of Avenue House” committee.
It is the “Open Day” at Avenue House from 2pm to 5 p.m. on this coming Sunday (20 March).
If you come early,before 2:30pm when they will be leaving, you’ll have the opportunity of meeting Jim Carter (Mr Carson from Downton Abbey) and also Imelda Staunton (who has Finchley connections) who will be saying a few words at the opening ceremony
The man in the audience with the brown leather hat (see picture above) will be your editor, do say hello to him, but he won’t pay for your tea!
