Dulwich Festival 2018

T

he Dulwich Festival returns this spring with the theme of ‘Celebration’ and promises to be bigger and better than ever to mark its 25th year. Highlights include rap royalty, The Last Poets, celebrating 50 years together; an evening with author Jane Robinson, celebrating the centenary of the Suffragettes; and a celebration of atoms, big bangs and DNA with award winning writer & performer, John Hinton’s, Ensonglopedia of Science. Over ten terrific days, the festival will showcase art & culture in the various wonderful hidden gems to be found in Dulwich. Dulwich, which pre-dates the Domesday book, has always had a vibrant community and been a pioneer for the arts. Dulwich Picture Gallery was the world’s first public art gallery when it was established over 200 years ago. The Dulwich Picture Gallery won’t be alone in opening its doors at this year’s Festival, over 250 local artists will once again welcome the public into their homes and studios for the Artist’s Open House, taking place across both weekends, providing a unique insight into their creative processes. To celebrate the centenary of women being given the right to vote, social historian and author Jane Robinson, will give an illustrated lecture at the Dulwich Picture Gallery on Friday 11th May on her latest book, Hearts and Minds: The Untold Story of the Great Pilgrimage and How Women Won the Vote. The book tells the remarkable, yet neglected story

of the suffragists march on London. After the talk, author and journalist, Nicolette Jones, will lead a Q&A. A trly memorable evening is in store at Dulwich College when The Last Poets make a rare UK appearance. The godfathers of hip hop and spoken word legends have inspired generations of performance poets and musicians since fusing poetry and rap on Harlem street corners during the Civil Rights era. Step up to the open mic with them as they give the festival a proper send off on Sunday 20th May. The ‘People’s Poet’, David Nieta, will host this event and lead an intimate discussion about their lives, from their youth in the ghetto, to their triumphs and defeats, their inspirations, and their legacy. Also appearing at Dulwich College, acclaimed performance poet, comedian and musician, John Hegley returns to the Festival for an evening of wit and fun with A Potato Show on Friday 18th May. John is a regular sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival and appeals to young and old alike. There are plenty more family-orientated events. Expect atoms and Big Bangs at John Hinton’s latest show, Ensonglopedia of Science, a song about science for every letter of the alphabet at Alleyn’s Great Hall on Tuesday 15th May. A Circus Skills Workshop; the Festival Quiz in aid of LinkAge Southwark and the Children’s Art Competition, will all continue the ‘Celebration’ theme. Saturday 12th

Food & Drink with Suzanne James

Roasted Sea Bream with Fennel, Cherry Tomatoes & New Potatoes Preparation time 10 mins / Cooking time 35 minutes

Method 1) Preheat the oven to 180°C. 2) Heat 1/2 tbsp oil in a pan. Add the onion and cook until softened. Add the garlic and fennel, season, and cook until it softens slightly. 3) Spoon the fennel mix into a baking tray. 4) Add the tomatoes, chopped pepper, sliced courgette and dill. 5) Arrange the sea bream fillets, skin-side down, over the veg mixture. Squeeze over half the lemon, then drizzle with the remaining oil; season well. 6) Cut 4 lemon slices from the remaining half and sit two on each fillet. Return to the oven for 8 minutes, or until the fish is cooked through and the veg is tender. 7) Serve with boiled new potatoes Plaice is a sustainable fish but when buying it make sure that it has been caught in trawls to reduce the impact of disturbing bottom dwelling species (check labels, or buy from a good fishmonger like Moxon’s, or the lovely fish van on North Cross Road Market). Make sure fillets are over 30cm, anything smaller is too young. It has long been overlooked in higher end gastronomy and rarely features on the menus of top restaurants, but it really is a superb fish, possessing a fine, moist texture and subtle but distinctive flavor. Other options to Plaice are Flounder, Dab or Sea Bream.

Ingredients • 2 Sea Bream - filleted • 1 Red Onion - sliced • 2 Small Garlic Cloves • 1 Red Pepper - chopped • 1 Bulb of Fennel – sliced • 2 Courgette - sliced • 10 Cherry Tomatoes - halved • Small Handful of Dill - chopped • 1/2 Lemon squeezed • 1/2 Lemon sliced • New Potatoes – boiled & sliced • Salt & Pepper 14 | SE21 - April 2019

Garden Talk with Janine Winlaw

Luscious lawns 5) Repair bald patches Most lawns get problem areas where the grass has been worn away or died back, often under trees or in shady areas from lack of water or light. Don’t worry, these are easy enough to reseed. First roughen the surface with a rake, then scatter the grass seed - choose a suitable mix such a hardwearing mix with ryegrass or one for shade. Then lightly sprinkle soil over the surface to protect the seeds from the birds and to give them extra moisture to germinate.

6) Edge your lawn:

1) Rake leaves

Neatening up the edges will give your lawn an instant facelift. A spade will do but a lawn edger makes things easier – especially on curves. A good trick for repairing a tatty edge is to cut a square piece of turf around the damaged edge, flip it round so that the straight line is on the edge side and looks nice and crisp – then re-seed the damaged bit as above.

Rake off any leaves and other garden debris built up over the winter.

7) Aerate

Now is the time to give your grass a bit of spring TLC if you want a lawn to be proud of this summer. Here are eight jobs to give it a lift - even just a few of these will be a step in the right direction.

2) Give it a trim As the weather warms up and your grass starts to grow again, you can start mowing. Choose a dry day and use the highest setting so as not to scalp the lawn.

3) Remove weeds Regular mowing will remove most of the annual weeds but not the pesky perennial weeds such as thistles and dandelions. Weed killer is an option, but I prefer to dig them out by hand, removing the whole taproot to avoid it re-growing.

4) Scarify This is where you rake off the ‘thatch’ - dead grass, debris and moss - one of the biggest problems with lawns. Use a wire rake and don’t worry if it leaves big bare patches – you can repair those later. Your lawn will benefit in the long run as scarifying lets in air and light and stimulates the grass roots into putting on side shoots and thickening up. 16 | SE21 - April 2019

This is one of the best things you can do for a lush, healthy lawn. Most lawns get compacted – especially those on heavy soil and in areas where kids run up and down. Aerating –creating holes in the lawn - allows water, air and nutrients to get to the roots. You can get special hollow tine forks for this, but a garden fork is fine. Work across the lawn making holes a few cm deep, then brush sharp sand into the holes to improve drainage. Aerating is hard work, but is easier early in the season while the ground is still soft. And by encouraging your grass to grow more densely makes it harder for weeds and moss to grow.

8) Feed your lawn At this time of year you need a spring feed with more nitrogen to replace what’s been lost over the winter. You can buy organic fertilisers from chaseorganics.co.uk. The best time to feed your lawn when the grass is wet or rain is predicted. Janine Winlaw - Writer & Gardener Follow me on instagram @janinewinlaw

Homemade with with Jessica Walker

Kitchen Herb Wreath Spring is all about awakening your senses after the grey days, and bleak nights. A herb wreath is a delightful alternative to Spring flowers. It is fragrant and affordable, once dried the herbs can be used for adding flavour to your cooking.

You will need: • A wet oasis base – I bought mine on Amazon. • A pair of secateurs or sharp scissors. • A selection of herbs…I used Bay from my garden, and bought Rosemary and thyme from my local supermarket. • A round tray, dinner plate or charger. • Candles - optional. Simple! Step 1 - Submerge your base in water. This will keep your arrangement fresh for much longer. 20 | SE21 - April 2019

Step 2 - cut your herbs into workable pieces – approximately 4-5 inches long. Step 3 - Work your way around the base sticking your herb sprigs firmly into the oasis. base Layer the herbs for texture and depth of colour. Step 4 - Place your wreath onto your tray, wooden board, plate or charger to avoid making your surface. Step 5 - add your candles to the middle and light. Place in your kitchen or dining room. Step back and admire your work.

Pets Corner with Leonie St Clair

Teaching a Dog to Settle

G

etting the right balance between activity and rest is a tough call for many dog and puppy owners. Attempting to burn off energy by increasing exercise and activity only adds to the problem, creating an adrenalin junkie pet. What every dog and owner needs is an ‘off switch’ and one way is by teaching the dog to settle on cue. There are two phases to teaching settle. In the first part we use a mat to teach the dog to move to a specific place. In the second we teach the dog to lie down and relax while he is in that place, slowly increasing the duration.

Teach your dog to settle in a specific place using a mat (always put the mat away after training) 1) Put the mat down on the floor away from distractions. Now put a treat onto it and allow your dog to investigate the treat. As soon as he puts his paws on the mat say ‘yes’ give another, better treat. Now pick up the mat. 2) Repeat, putting the mat somewhere else in the room. When your dog steps on the mat, say ‘yes’ and give a treat, then remove the mat. Repeat all over the room, until your dog is whizzing over to the mat every time you put it down. 3) Next, point to the mat and say ‘settle’ before your dog steps on it. Reward and start to introduce a release command (‘OK’) before you remove the mat and your dog steps off it. 4) Wait for your dog to have all his feet on the mat before you reward and release. Now increase the contact time before reward and release. 5) Your goal is for your dog to go to his mat without hesitation when you point and say ‘settle’ and that he stays on it for a minimum of 20 seconds in any position without prompting from you. Once you achieve this go to step 2.

time put your foot on the lead, just so your dog has enough leeway to stand on the mat. You need to be positioned so you can keep a foot on the lead while you are seated in your chair. 8) Ignore your dog until he lies down on the mat, if he does say ‘settle, good settle’, put some more treats between his paws and then ignore him. If he stays in position for a few seconds, praise, reward and release (‘OK’) 9) Waiting until your dog chooses to lie down is crucial. Some dogs will lie down within minutes, others will take half an hour, and some may buck, rear and pull to get away. Whatever your dog does, just calmly wait for him to lie down and follow the steps in 8. With persistence and practice you will find your dog starts to lie down more quickly each time. 10) The magic moment occurs when as soon as your dog sees the mat he goes to it and lies down. When this happens stop the session, remove the mat and play a game your dog loves. 11) Now start to randomise reward at each training session. Sometimes your dog gets a treat, other times he doesn’t; occasionally he gets a large piece of something he loves (jackpot). 12) Once your dog goes to the mat and settles whenever you tell him to, start to increase the time he stays on the mat. Sometimes reward and release him immediately; other times ask for a bit longer. Aim for a minute before you reward. 13) Again, if your dog starts to resist just keep your foot on the lead and wait for him to lie down; reward and release. Your dog will begin to understand that only calm behaviour gets rewarded. 14) Start to use other areas of the house to practise ‘settle’ and build duration. The final stage is to go out of sight. Put the mat on the other side of the door of a small space, like a toilet and build duration.

Learning to relax (Put your dog on a lead) 6) Find a comfortable chair and something to occupy yourself. Put the training mat by your chair. 7) When your dog goes to check the mat, praise him and drop some treats onto it. At the same 22 | SE21 - April 2019

Education News from Alleyn's

Playing Out Nicola Price, teacher in charge of Forest School at Alleyn’s Junior School, talks about the benefits of unstructured play outdoors.

A

s a child of the 70s I had the experience of ‘playing out’ with a group of neighbouring children. We spent days exploring, building, and experimenting - always working together and keeping an eye out for the younger ones. We made ramps for bike jumping, a proper raft to fish from, and climbed trees to imitate birds and experience a bird’s eye view. We would often be out all day without interruption or adult direction, only stopping for lunch. These days children can miss out on the benefits of active learning in the environment; time spent listening, looking closely, thinking, imagining, problem-solving, risk-taking, team work and perseverance. Forest School is doing much to bridge this gap for children, offering them time for child-led activities in the natural environment. Your children might have a Forest School session at their school or nursery but do not despair if they don’t. You can foster the resilient, confident, independent and creative learner in your child outside school or nursery time. Here are some ideas to give them unstructured time and space to develop skills, interests and understanding through practical experiences in the natural environment. If you have a garden, consider retaining a natural area for exploration; the trampoline provides fun as well as exercise, but a natural environment can enable them to develop awareness, independence and confidence. If you have an outdoor space, set your child up with a messy area. Supply water, containers sticks and stones, and let them use their imagination! Consider teaming up with other parents in your street to ask your local council to close your road for one day a month so your children can play safely together in your street.

The next time you take them out, skip the local park and go to the woods (Dulwich and Sydenham Wood are nearby). Take a picnic, let the time while away, and allow your children to explore.

Useful links The London Wildlife Trust’s Centre for Wildlife Gardening in Marsden Road SE15 is a great source of inspiration.www.wildlondon.org.uk Sydenham Hill Woods offers ‘child-led play for all ages in all seasons and all weathers’ every Friday at 10am. www.nature-play.co.uk/south-eastlondon-uk.html playingout.net provides help and information on how to apply to get your street closed for a few hours a month for children to play freely in your street. The Stick Book and The Wild Weather Book, both by Jo Schofield and Fiona Danks, provide plenty of fun ideas for outdoor play using leaves, mud twigs etc. in creative ways – and even grown-ups can join in the fun!

Financial Matters with David Frederick

HMRC Extends Olive Branch To Taxpayers

W

henever you mention the name HM Revenue and Custom (HMRC) it conjures up a cocktails of emotions. Whether it is favourable or less endearing, these emotions often stem from a past experience. Irrespective of our emotions and attitudes of HMRC as an organisation, believe it or not they continue to hold out an olive branch to taxpayers. No, it is not an April’s fool joke. HMRC has five categories of penalties for personal tax and Self-Assessment.

Failure To Notify HMRC

Taxpayers have until 5th October, to notify HMRC if they had an income liability arising in the year ended the previous 5th April. This means all tax payers who are not within the Self-Assessment system have until 5th October 2018 to notify HMRC if they had a tax liability arising in the year ended 5th April 2018.

Late Filing

The minimum penalty for the failure to file a tax return on time is £100. This can increase to a maximum of £1,600 if the tax return remains unfiled after 12 months.

Late Payment

The penalty for the late payment of income tax is based upon the percentage of the income tax liability. The minimum penalty for late payment is 5% of the income tax liability. The penalty can escalate to 15% of the income liability if it remains unpaid after 12 months. The first olive branch offered by HMRC appears under the late payment penalty. If a taxpayer makes a time to pay agreement with HMRC the penalty will be suspended. However if the agreement is broken the taxpayer will become liable to the penalty. A HMRC Debt Management Office recently stated, “the agreement is a concession and not a right.”

Failure To Keep Records

Under Self Assessment taxpayers are required both to keep and preserve the records they 28 | SE21 - April 2019

require to make a correct and complete tax return. HMRC reminds taxpayers, “it is virtually impossible to produce an accurate return of profit without keeping records of one sort or another.” Consequently, personal taxpayers may be liable to a penalty of up to £3,000 for each failure to keep or to preserve adequate records in support of a tax return.

Penalties for inaccuracies in personal tax returns

Inaccuracies

HMRC applies a four tier behaviour assessment of inaccuracies in a tax return where the tax return submitted led to an underpayment, understatement or over-repayment. Reasonable care is dependent upon each taxpayers own ability and circumstances. Where HMRC deemed reasonable care was taken the taxpayer will not

be charged a penalty. Careless is deduced where a taxpayer has failed to take reasonable care to get their tax returns right. A taxpayer’s inaccuracies is deemed to be Deliberate, when they knew and were aware that the tax return submitted to HMRC was inaccurate. The most common act of deliberate behaviour is the overstatement of business expenses or understatement of income. Deliberate and concealed inaccuracies arise when taxpayers

submit an inaccurate tax return and seek to conceal its inaccuracy from HMRC. The penalties levied by HMRC for behaviour that resulted in an inaccuracy in a tax return spans the spectrum form nil to 100% of the tax loss. In addition, HMRC will afford the taxpayer an olive branch for an unprompted disclosure. Any disclosure by a taxpayer when the taxpayer had no reason to believe HMRC had discovered or were about to discover the inaccuracy is an unprompted disclosure. Evidence of HMRC’s olive branch lies in their Let Property Campaign. Residential landlords can disclose their position to HMRC regarding unpaid taxes spanning 20years and they will be granted 90 days to calculate and settle their outstanding tax liability. They will not be penalised in accordance with the five penalties outlined. These taxpayers are advised to grab HMRC’s olive branch now.

Dulwich Festival 25th Anniversary

Dulwich Festival 2018

T

he Dulwich Festival returns this spring with the theme of ‘Celebration’ and promises to be bigger and better than ever to mark its 25th year. Highlights include rap royalty, The Last Poets, celebrating 50 years together; an evening with author Jane Robinson, celebrating the centenary of the Suffragettes; and a celebration of atoms, big bangs and DNA with award winning writer & performer, John Hinton’s, Ensonglopedia of Science. Over ten terrific days, the festival will showcase art & culture in the various wonderful hidden gems to be found in Dulwich. Dulwich, which pre-dates the Domesday book, has always had a vibrant community and been a pioneer for the arts. Dulwich Picture Gallery was the world’s first public art gallery when it was established over 200 years ago. The Dulwich Picture Gallery won’t be alone in opening its doors at this year’s Festival, over 250 local artists will once again welcome the public into their homes and studios for the Artist’s Open House, taking place across both weekends, providing a unique insight into their creative processes. To celebrate the centenary of women being given the right to vote, social historian and author Jane Robinson, will give an illustrated lecture at the Dulwich Picture Gallery on Friday 11th May on her latest book, Hearts and Minds: The Untold Story of the Great Pilgrimage and How Women Won the Vote. The book tells the remarkable, yet neglected story

of the suffragists march on London. After the talk, author and journalist, Nicolette Jones, will lead a Q&A. A trly memorable evening is in store at Dulwich College when The Last Poets make a rare UK appearance. The godfathers of hip hop and spoken word legends have inspired generations of performance poets and musicians since fusing poetry and rap on Harlem street corners during the Civil Rights era. Step up to the open mic with them as they give the festival a proper send off on Sunday 20th May. The ‘People’s Poet’, David Nieta, will host this event and lead an intimate discussion about their lives, from their youth in the ghetto, to their triumphs and defeats, their inspirations, and their legacy. Also appearing at Dulwich College, acclaimed performance poet, comedian and musician, John Hegley returns to the Festival for an evening of wit and fun with A Potato Show on Friday 18th May. John is a regular sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival and appeals to young and old alike. There are plenty more family-orientated events. Expect atoms and Big Bangs at John Hinton’s latest show, Ensonglopedia of Science, a song about science for every letter of the alphabet at Alleyn’s Great Hall on Tuesday 15th May. A Circus Skills Workshop; the Festival Quiz in aid of LinkAge Southwark and the Children’s Art Competition, will all continue the ‘Celebration’ theme. Saturday 12th

May will be Festival Family Funday with workshops, concerts, performances and the start of Artists’ Open House to entertain all. The everpopular fairs will also be back at Goose Green (Sunday 13th) and Dulwich Park (Sunday 20th), both of which provide free entertainment for all ages. There is something for all musical tastes at this year’s Festival. Opening the event on Friday 11th May, is a Festival of Choirs curated by local choir, Tongue & Groove, at James Allen’s Girls’ School. For Classical music fans, a highlight will be a performance of works by Purcell, Debussy and Beethoven by the Doric String Quartet. Formed nearly 20 years ago, they are recognized as the leading British string quartet of their generation, with a worldwide reputation. They will perform on 16th May in the 400-year old Christ’s Chapel in Dulwich Village. There’s an opportunity to gain an insider’s view of the exquisite organ in the Chapel with an open day conducted by organist, Marilyn Harper, on 12th May; Marilyn will also give the Festival organ recital at Christ’s Chapel on Sunday 13th May. The newly restored Georgian mansion, Bell House, on Gallery Road, will provide the perfect setting on 14th May for a relaxing evening of Poetry & Music. Formerly home to a Lord Mayor of London, the magnificent house will also host the Romeo Jones supper club in aid of LinkAge Southwark on 17th May. Contemporary music lovers will be excited by the return of Post-Brexit indie folk band, Joe Innes

& The Cavalcade, on 12th May, whose masterfully offbeat and often irreverent song writing has gained wide–spread praise. Meanwhile, The Ned Bennett Quartet will provide an evening of Blue Note Bossa Nova on Monday 14th May at Copper Beech Café and Licence to Ceilidh will be taking up residence at the Parish Hall, inviting us to cast off our inhibitions and take to the floor with some irresistible tunes on Saturday 19th May. An extensive programme of walks will be available to join; London Wildlife Trust guides leading the bat walk and the dawn chorus walk; Ian McInnes providing an insight into Dulwich’s Georgian Heritage; Lette Jones conducting the tree walk; Amanda Greatorex exploring local street art from Connor Harrington and Remi Rough, to Stik and the Festival will conclude with Brian Green’s history walk on Sunday 20th May. If this hasn’t sated your appetite, then Dulwich Festival’s Food Trail will be offering culinary delights from local producers and retailers throughout the 10-day Festival. The Dulwich Festival would not be the Dulwich Festival without the huge amount of support and enthusiasm shown by successive generations throughout its amazing first 25 years. The Festival celebrates the beautiful spaces, places, products and people Dulwich has to offer. Catch the film made of last year’s Festival by visiting our Twitter or Facebook page.

The Last Word – Matt & Ubie What do you most value about the area? We live in a great quiet road with some lovely grown up trees and shrubs so it feels spacious, green and safe which we love. There is also a great community feel and a caring residents’ association.

Where are you to be found on Saturday? Matt is a keen cyclist, so out and about pounding the pedals especially out in the Kent hills not that far from Dulwich. Ubie loves all things creative so will typically be drawing or crafting in some shape or form.

The best kept secret… We are West Dulwich residents, Matt and Ubie. Matt moved to Dulwich back in 2001. We had a whirlwind romance having met in Hong Kong. We got married in 2017 and Ubie moved over permanently then. Matt has worked in investment in London for many years. Ubie is an artist and teacher. We have been really enjoying getting our different skills together and launching our art class business in the local area!

Well, not sure they are too ‘secret’! But two great venues locally where we run our courses are the Paxton Centre in Crystal Palace and Fifty Seven by Suzanne James in East Dulwich. Both really nice warm environments managed by inspiring local businesswomen.

Where’s your favourite place to walk? Dulwich Park! Absolutely beautiful, well managed and we love how it changes with the seasons. It’s a real local oasis. The woods opposite Sydenham Hill train station are also great for a short stroll.

What brought you here?

The book I’m reading at the moment..

We don’t have roots here, but Matt has worked in London for many years. So, it was all about getting on the housing ladder! Believe it or not, back in 2001, West Dulwich seemed very good value for money. It probably still is, albeit relatively speaking, compared to other London suburbs of course!

Matt is reading The Art of Happiness which sets out some of the Dalai Lama’s suggestions for living a full and happy life. Some great tips in there! Ubie is engrossed in all things Zentangle at the moment and designing a new course for later this year.

How long have you lived in the area?

Travel is a passion for both of us! I would say something very similar to a recent trip to Sri Lanka and the Maldives. A great adventure travelling around Sri Lanka, experiencing new places, people, wildlife and flavours and a couple of days of luxury basking in the Maldives to top it off!

Over 15 years. When I bought my home here I didn’t foresee living her quite this long! But, Dulwich surroundings are so great, with proximity to London and all its attractions, but also a sense of leafiness and calm too! We are very happy here!

What has changed most during that time? I am not sure too much has massively changed overall, in West Dulwich anyway. It seems to go in waves with new businesses replacing older ones, but overall the vibe stays similar which is fine by us. We do like being near to East Dulwich and Crystal Palace though, with East Dulwich definitely having developed massively since Matt moved nearby. 32 | SE21 - April 2019

Our perfect holiday…

Our secret ambition… We are really enjoying building our art class, UbieDesign. We have got off to a great start but we would love to build it up, teach at more venues and maybe even franchise our teaching methods one day! www.ubiedesign.com
