Art and Coffee Morning: An Introduction to British Art - A Pre-Raphaelite Sisterhood

Southgate Beaumont Care Community, 15 Cannon Hill, N14 7DJ  

Join us for coffee and conversation as we explore paintings through the ages!

rossetti girlhoodLizzie Siddal: Lady affixing pennant to a knight's spear (1856:Tate)

The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood (1848- 1853) opened up the British art world in terms of painting's styles and themes. By cracking apart academic approaches and expectations, they created possibilities in which women could work and exhibit as artists. From Elizabeth Siddal to Joanna Mary Boyce, these artists could express their own visions and perspectives on the world through the Pre-Raphaelite lens — as we shall see today.

These informal one-hour Art & Coffee Mornings are run by Mark Banting and open to anyone with an interest in art history and visual culture.

Free for residents of Barchester Care.

Non-residents are kindly asked for £2 on the door.

Coffee & biscuits provided.

So join us every Friday morning for musical fun and games, learn lots of new songs, play with puppets, dance and enjoy time with your little one. With a baby and toddler friendly café and facilities on site, why not stay and meet with friends for an enjoyable stress-free morning.

* St Harmonica's Blues Club: Big Mamma's Door + Simon Hindley

St Monica's Parish Centre, Cannon House, 6 Cannon Hill, N14 7HG  

This is a recurring event - usually weekly. Not all repeats are shown in this list.

We are absolutely delighted to host Big Mamma’s Door once again at St Harmonica’s this Friday. This is a band that really knows how to entertain. With Fiona McElroy now based mainly in Ireland, it’s essential to grab these opportunities when they are together to perform in London. They went down a storm on the Bandstand at Broomfield Blues this summer and are sure to do the same this Friday.

Big Mamma’s Door are a highly accomplished band fronted by Fiona McElroy, whose vocals have been described as Etta James with a pinch of Patsy Cline and the spirit of Elvis; Fiona can handle Blues, Soul, Rhythm & Blues, Swing and Rock ’n Roll with a style that will have you on your feet and demanding more. Charlie Hulme on guitar, Paul Dickenson on double bass, Martin ‘Dr’ Dewhirst on sax and Peter Abernethy on drums. Big Mamma’s Door leave their audiences happy, wanting more and looking forward to the next time; you are in for a treat.

Half time support comes in the form of Simon Hindley, a highly talented singer and guitarist.

Free entry.  Last entry 11pm.

2018 membership cards available for £2.50

Membership is just £2.50 for the whole year, and for that, admission is free on Friday evenings throughout the year. All we ask is that you make a donation into the hat as that is how the bands get paid. If each person puts at least £5.00 into the hat then we will be able to continue to offer the quality of acts at the club that we have managed so far. If you really don’t enjoy the evening then fair enough (but please let us know).

We don’t receive any of the bar takings so please don’t think that the more you drink the more the bands get paid. Your donations on a Friday evening into the hat is how it works.

Spotlight on Asylum Film Festival: Another News Story

Karamel, Chocolate Factory 2, Coburg Road, N22 6UJ

Another News Story

Debuting director Orban Wallace’s feature-length work engages the European refugee crisis, but the young British director turns the camera lens in a direction rather different from the rest of the documentary scene investigating recent events. He trains his penetrating gaze on the journalists sent by their employers to the Mediterranean to cover the unfolding humanitarian tragedy. By juxtaposing the stories of reporters and the experiences of Middle East emigrants, he has fostered a new meta-reading of media content. In today’s chaotic era, what is the “who, how, and why” of news spewed forth on world conflicts and crises? “Sometimes you feel you’re making a noise, but not helping really,” laments Lorenzo over the sensationalized treatment of human misfortune; he’s one of those who, in the months-long hunt for fresh information, accepts a nomadic lifestyle. When faced with immeasurable suffering, is it possible to maintain your humanistic sensitivity, or, glazed, do you just go after another news story?

Another News Story premiered at Karlovy Vary and has since been selected by 15 international festivals including, Zurich, IDFA & Iran.

Director: Orban Wallace
Producers: Orban Wallace, Verity Wislocki

Music by RICHARD RODGERS,
Book and Lyrics by OSCAR HAMMERSTEIN II 

Based on "Anna and the King of Siam" by Margaret Landon,
Original Choreography by Jerome Robbins 

Rodgers & Hammerstein's highly celebrated musical set in 1860's Bangkok tells the moving story of the experience of Anna, a British school teacher hired as a governess as part of the King of Siam's idea to modernise his country. 

A celebration of love in all its forms, we see the desperation of forbidden love; the love of a neglected wife; and although on the surface we witness an amusing conflict between Anna and the King as East meets West, love creeps up on them, which neither can admit or accept. A timeless classic, from the company that brought you the recent award winning productions of The Drowsy Chaperone and Parade

A fiery explosion of Hip Hop Dance, Physical Theatre and Rap performed by 4 MASSIVELY talented kids who will amaze you with their energy and skills. They tell the familiar story of The Three Pigs and WOLF who grew up together as BEST MATES. 

The dance tricks, original funky sound track and off the wall choreography will send you on a musical roller coaster but the story deals with real life social issues of loss, hope and labelling. 

Gutsy, bold, skillful theatre that children are SO ready for and adults will be wanting MORE.

Asylum InQuizition quiz night

Karamel, Chocolate Factory 2, Coburg Road, N22 6UJ  

asylum inquizition oct 2018

Our quiz night compered, chaired and championed by three local MPs, all leading activists for the rights and dignity of those abandoned by a harsh and inhumane system, will aim to challenge, inform and leave no stone unturned on the UK’s asylum process.

The themes and questions will be developed in collaboration with Haringey Migrant Support Group, Birth Companions and The Helen Bamber Foundation. The questions will focus on the human, psychological and financial cost to the individual attempting to navigate the tortuous and hostile journey towards the safety and security that all coming here seek.

Our community contains incredibly rich seams of generosity and humanity but those contributing to PramDepot and other organisations that support asylum seekers, have varying degrees of knowledge and understanding of the numbing levels of struggle and stress facing those seeking the most basic of human rights for themselves and their babies. A mother and baby in one tiny room, scraping together the bare essentials on £35 per week, standing in Home Office queues in the cold and the rain, with their Leave to Remain refused, appealing, waiting – always waiting and often alone.

The evening will incorporate a Q&A session and an opportunity for discussion – so be prepared to listen, learn, participate, share, enlighten and be enlightened. And some of us may leave feeling better equipped to help counter the ‘Hostile Environment’ and campaign for human rights and dignity for all.

Hope in a Hostile Environment: A night of spoken word

Karamel, Chocolate Factory 2, Coburg Road, N22 6UJ  

hope in a hostile environment oct 2018

This very special night will spotlight the stories of ten young women who have recently attained ‘Leave to Remain’ or who are still at various stages of the asylum process. Each story will tell of the individual’s struggle, the fears and sadness as well as her strength and resilience, her experience of the system, the loss of family and absence of sustained support as well as the moments of human warmth and kindness encountered. These stories will be the product of several workshops involving the women carried out in collaboration with the Helen Bamber Foundation. Each will then be edited and polished by local author, broadcaster and campaigner, Michael Rosen. These will then be shared with two groups of local people who will, through another series of workshops, develop and transform them into spoken word renditions and perform them on behalf of and in honour of the women. This event forms part of a broader project, which provides the women with the opportunity of expressing their hopes and dreams by photographing images of a world they seek to be part of. These images accompanied by the written word will be part of a photography exhibition also entitled ‘Hope in a Hostile Environment’.

Tickets will be on sale in the coming weeks - to reserve in advance and guaranty your place please contact us:

19 Greenacre Walk, N14 7DB

Tickets are available for a concert hosted by the charity Maxability in Southgate.  To reserve tickets, see the instructions below.  To find out more about Maxability visit www.maxability.org.uk and watch this video.

Sam & Jamie performed for Maxability a few years ago - an event that proved so popular that, ever since, audience members have been entreating us to bring them back! The enforced cancellation of our previously scheduled ensemble has enabled us to oblige, and thankfully the lads were not booked to play elsewhere that night!

Multi-award-winning folk musicians Sam Kelly and Jamie Francis first met at university in Brighton in 2010 and started performing around Brighton as a duo, playing folk and blues songs. They have become two of the most respected and innovative musicians on the British folk scene, and are the main songwriting partnership behind the hit folk band "Sam Kelly and The Lost Boys".

They continue to play together throughout the UK at folk clubs, music venues and festivals, performing inventive interpretations of tunes and songs (in between humorous anecdotes and stories of their misadventures). An evening of most pleasurable musical entertainment is guaranteed!

You can find out more about them by visiting: www.samkelly.org

Lunchtime talk: Black Georgians

Bruce Castle Museum, Lordship Lane, N17 8NU  

image

A talk by historian S.I Martin about the remarkable lives of some of the lesser-known Black Georgians who lived in Britain.

During the 18th century Elizabeth Dido Belle, Olaudah Equiano, Ignatius Sancho, Ottobah Cugoano, and Bill Richmond came to Britain from the West Indies, the colonies of North America and other parts of Europe. Their names are perhaps amongst the best-known Black Georgians – but there were many others who came here as servants, sailors and soldiers.

Find out more about the remarkable lives of these individuals at this fascinating, illustrated talk by historian S. I. (Steve) Martin.

About S.I. Martin

S. I. Martin is a British author, historian, journalist and teacher, specialising in Black British history and literature. Amongst several books, he wrote Britain’s Slave Trade for Channel 4 Books to accompany the channel’s television documentary Windrush.

He was the curator of the 2016 exhibition ‘Black Georgians: The Shock of the Familiar’ (held at the Black Cultural Archives).

This talk accompanies Bruce Castle Museum’s current exhibition on Black Georgian Londoners.

Doors open
Doors open at 12 noon. This is a “munch and lunch event”. Just bring your lunch and listen. Refreshments available.

Kindly supported by the Friends of Bruce Castle and the Fellowship of St John.

Talk: The Golden Road to Samarkand

Jubilee Hall, 2 Parsonage Lane, Enfield, EN2 0AJ  

enfieldsociety

An illustrated talk by Stephen Gilburt. In the 7th century central Asia was conquered by Arabs and the people converted to Islam. In the late 14th century the area was ruled by Tamurlaine. By the late 16th century there were several independent Muslim Khanates. Cities such as Khiva, Bukara and Samarkand still had palaces, mosques with minarets, madrassas (Koranic teaching schools), bazaars and caravanserai (inns where merchants could stay while travelling on the Silk Road between China and eastern Mediterranean ports). These cities grew rich on the manufacture and trade in cotton and silk cloth, carpets, ceramics, artifacts made from metal and wood, and jewelery, which were transported in camel caravans along the Silk Road. Central Asia was conquered by Russia in the 19th century and since 1991 has been split up into independent republics such as Uzbekistan.
