Throughout the day theatre company Uninvited Guests will be working with audiences and performers to collect messages, sounds and images for their new time capsule piece, To Those Born Later, for the people of 2167.

Saturday will be a day of family activities, music and dance with Ballet Black performing two pieces from their recent Barbican Triple Bill; Captured by Martin Lawrance and House of Dreams by Michael Corder.
