The LAMB

FESTIVAL Sunday 31 May - Saturday 7 June

The Lamb Festival is an Arts Festival in Edmonton’s historic Church Street celebrating the lives and works of Charles and Mary Lamb.


WWW.ENFIELDFESTIVALS.COM JUNE - SEPTEMBER ENFIELD FESTIVALS SUMMER 2014

But who are the Lambs? Who is the person with the greatest number of commemorative plaques in London? Charles Dickens. But the identity of the next most ‘plaqued’ person will come as a surprise: it is Charles Lamb. I bet most of you have never heard of the Lamb siblings, Charles and Mary, well here’s your chance… Throughout the 19th century Charles’ work was immensely popular and until 1950 he was even featured in the school curriculum as a prime example of excellence in English prose – the ultimate tribute. Famous for his Essays of Elia and for the popular children’s book Tales from Shakespeare, which he wrote alongside his sister, Mary.

Both now lie together in peace in All Saints Edmonton churchyard.

The Festival In 1847, aged 82, Mary Lamb died and was buried alongside her brother Charles in the churchyard. After the current vicar, Revd. Stuart Owen, discovered that the Lamb’s final resting place is in his own church graveyard, he became captivated by the lives and legacies of the siblings. Owen realised the importance of re-telling this fascinating story as part of Enfield’s heritage and so The Lamb Festival was created to recapture this enthralling piece of history.

Madness and Manic Murder! Here comes the juiciest part of the story. In 1796, Mary’s mental state worsened and in a frenzy of hysteria and anger she stabbed and killed her own mother in the chest with a kitchen knife! She was declared a ‘lunatic’ which meant Charles had to take full and continuous care of her. Sadly, Mary was suffering from a serious mental condition; probably what we would now call bi-polar disorder. Time passed by and in 1827 Charles moved himself, and his sister Mary, to Enfield in search of a relaxing, peaceful lifestyle for the sake of her extremely poor health. Charles bought a house on Chase Side, ‘the prettiest compactest house I ever saw’ as a friend described it. After a couple of years they moved, as far away as ‘twenty four inches further from Town’ (next door). But as Mary’s mental and physical condition deteriorated, they eventually settled in a discreet asylum away from the public eye in Church Street, Edmonton.

Puppet show: The Lambs’ Tale The authors of the much-loved Lambs’ Tales from Shakespeare, Charles and Mary Lamb had difficult lives – handicapped by poverty, class and ill-health. The Lambs’ Tale tells their extraordinary story through puppetry, words and music, interweaving scenes from their lives with the Shakespeare plays they adapted for children, which have become their most enduring work.

Source will be springing up in boroughs all over London this summer, bringing spectacular outdoor circus theatre right to your doorstep – and it’s coming to the Edmonton Summer Festival on the 26th July! The incredible Cirque Bijou and Nutkhut are joining forces with Millfield Theatre to amaze and astound, as they invite us on a journey alongside a band of ancient travellers to discover the city’s neglected rivers and their hidden histories. Together they will uncover the stories and music of these mysterious waterways which have lain forgotten since London’s first sewerage system buried them over 150 years ago. The band of ancient travellers tell these uncovered tales the only way they know how – through acrobatics, circus, dance, music and theatre!

What better place to uncover these delicious tales than besides the ancient Pymmes Brook.

A company of six characters perform on and around a human powered machine that makes a moving stage. History will once again be brought back to the surface of the present day to be celebrated through song, stories and engaging performances. Cirque Bijou creates highly accessible outdoor shows for audiences across the country, from urban street shows to large scale circus and spectacle in the air and on water.

Most recently, and slightly more Rock and Roll, their work was seen by hundreds of thousands of people across the globe during a world tour with Muse. Nutkhut are modern British street artists, creating mixed media performances that engage communities and inspire audiences. Performing at festivals and events across the country, organising Melas and celebrations, their work includes dance, theatre and installation.

Circulate is supported by the Strategic Touring Fund.

Join Chickenshed for their 40th Anniversary Chickenshed have announced their first Summer Festival in 2014 to celebrate their 40th year with the communities of Enfield. Looking back 40 years, it seems remarkable that Chickenshed have been creating inclusive theatre in the magnificent Borough of Enfield for this length of time. To mark this incredible achievement, they will be hosting the first Chickenshed Summer Festival at their beautiful theatre complex in Southgate on Sunday 8 June. Chickenshed are throwing open their doors and inviting the whole community to join them for a unique opportunity to visit all areas of the theatre. There will be fun workshops, theatre skills demonstrations and special one-off performances from Chickenshed and other arts groups from across the Borough. Visitors will be able to enjoy live music and dance performances as well as going backstage to see the technical side of theatre making. All this is a far cry from when the company first started in a disused chicken barn 40 years ago! Back then Chickenshed founders, Jo Collins and Mary Ward, had the same aspirations and the same passion – to work with people

of all ages, abilities and from all backgrounds, whether experienced or inexperienced, shy or outgoing, wild or confident. They believed that anyone who genuinely wanted to take part should be allowed to travel the wonderful journey of self-discovery alongside their peers. But they needed a space. After borrowing spaces in chicken sheds and church halls, Enfield Council pledged land for a new theatre. Lord and Lady Rayne, together with many supporters, worked tirelessly to raise funds to build it. It was with the steadfast and dedicated support of Enfield Council that Chickenshed moved into an exquisite flexible space next to the Cat Hill Roundabout in Southgate - and so a dream became a reality. From this new home things really have taken off! Chickenshed is now a theatre company that is recognised for creating groundbreaking, inspirational theatre and is internationally regarded as being a centre of excellence for inclusion.


WWW.ENFIELDFESTIVALS.COM JUNE - SEPTEMBER ENFIELD FESTIVALS SUMMER 2014

There couldn’t be a better way to celebrate their 40th anniversary than by marking the long journey with a family festival. The event will be free and festival goers will be able to mingle in the buildings and gardens, meet some characters from Chickenshed shows and listen to some great musical acts from across Enfield. You’ll be able to enjoy a drink and a bite to eat in the bar area. There will also be some fantastic entertainment for all ages in the studio theatre. There’ll be lots to keep everyone occupied in the arts and crafts area. Or for those curious about what goes on behind the scenes, you can experience a backstage tour.

Hannah Pender speaks to Steve Taylor & Josie Frater from Ziggy’s Q. When did Ziggy’s all begin? “Twenty years ago in the heart of London’s West End as a weekly club in the trendy basement of the Green Man opposite Great Portland Street tube. After a decade off and having become local residents, we decided two years ago to bring Ziggy’s to Enfield. Luckily, and with the great help of the Dugdale Centre team, we’re going from success to success and we’re excited about the future.”

Steve: “Lewis Taylor (no relation), he’s an amazing singer and composer from Barnet who left the big time because of the pressures of fame.”

Q. What has been your proudest moment on stage? Both: “A standing ovation at Ronnie Scott’s for our original music/band – The World Runners.”

Q. How is it working so closely with your family?

Q. Who is the best musician you’ve ever worked with?

Steve: “Ha ha, we always get asked this...

Josie: “Several… But, and it may be obvious… 1) Steve Taylor for his sheer ability, musical mastery and utter taste; 2) Randy Brecker, one of the greatest trumpeters in the world – I played at Ronnie Scott’s with him and became quite soft about him. Recently, we’ve been thrilled to work with Julie Dexter and Mica Paris – both are outstanding musicians. Also, credit to the many brilliant supporting musicians who’ve graced our stage.”

As husband and wife, and now our performing daughter Rosie, we know each others strengths and weaknesses like the back of our hand. We usually have a clear shared vision of any project be it composing, recording, songwriting, presenting, programming or educational. We both function best being as honest as we can with each other and with everyone else.

Q. If you had to pick one band/ musician for Ziggy’s to work with in the future who would it be?

Josie: “Nitin Sawhney for his wonderful eclecticism.”

We are lucky enough to genuinely like each other plus we laugh all the time (The antidote to everything if things get tough). We resolve never to let any situation become more important than it actually is in the wider scheme of life.”

Q. How important is it for you to promote new talent? Josie: “It’s one of the reasons we run Ziggy’s! We are both educators and for us it’s a normal progression to pass on your knowledge and inspire young musicians to pursue or express music in its core form and not necessarily through the perceived ‘quick routes’. It’s very exciting to find new young talent and to give them a platform.

Q. What advice would you give to young musicians wanting to gig professionally? Steve: “Turn up on time to rehearsals, sound checks, gigs, concerts. You can be a long time in this business and a reputation for unreliability can stick. Work on your people skills. Learn as much about music and the industry as possible, it changes like the wind. Be flexible, brave, bold and honest. Also, allow mistakes to happen - but only once. Kids also need to understand there’s far more to the music biz than theThe Voice and The X Factor- would Kate Bush, Elvis, Ed Sheeran or Tony Bennet win?”

Q. Can you give us a cheeky insight into any future Ziggy’s collaborations? Ziggy’s World Jazz Festival possibly…

Trent Park’s exciting new walks programme and tours, developed and managed by Black Rainbow Events, will be led by experts with a wide range of subjects offering something for all ages.

From April to October, the walks will cover subjects such as the History of Trent Park, evening bat activity, bird watching, survival and “Last year, with the Friends of Trent nature’s food walks and ending with a spooky Halloween tour. Park, Black Rainbow Events ran a

series of hugely successful history and mystery walks all based in this historical country park. Hundreds of people attended, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive. So this year, thanks to a successful bid During ‘Love Parks Week’ (25th to the Enfield Residents’ Priority July to 3rd August) you will be Fund, we have launched a more blown away on a walk that follows the London LOOP footpath varied programme of tours.” from Trent Park to Forty Hall, which will be co-led by a relative of Guy Fawkes himself!

“These events are all free. Bring everyone along and join in these tours, a great way to spend a Sunday in beautiful surroundings, learn something new, and it won’t cost you a penny.” Alan Mitellas Founder of Black Rainbow Events.

Trent Country Park has a fascinating history. It was once owned by Sir Philip Sassoon who was a famous and incredibly wealthy socialite and politician. During the 1930s, he used Trent Park as a weekend retreat for his A-List friends, including Sir Winston Churchill and Charlie Chaplin. During WWII it was used as a highly specialised Prisoner of War camp for high ranking German Officers, run by the Secret Service. Camlet Moat in Trent Park is also known as London’s Camelot due to an increasingly popular belief that the site is connected to the origins of Arthurian Legends.

TALKIES

COMMUNITY CINEMA Alice Plunkett talks to David Williamson, Mr Talkies, about his love of cinema.

Q. Most importantly, if you had to bring three films on to a desert island what would they be? ”An impossible question – there is so much good cinema I just couldn’t pick! Three that we have shown this year and I am happy to watch again and again are O Brother Where Art Thou, Everything is Illuminated and The Blues Brothers.”

Q. When did Talkies begin? We had our first test evening in October 2012 and then our first proper event was in February 2013. Since then we have had 24 events and now generally have about two per month.

Q. How do you pick which films you show?

Q. Was it difficult to get started? Naively, we thought we could just be fairly casual in the way that we organised Talkies. We soon learnt that life was not that easy and we had a steep learning curve. A passion for film was not enough and we had to learn lots of technical stuff from projection to marketing and legal. Still we got through it and now that we are running we can concentrate on the main task of devising interesting events.

An audience survey came up with over 150 suggested films - which would take us over ten years if we showed them all! We have shown films at particular times in the calendar – such as Christmas or International Women’s Day; lots of music and dance events because we can add a live music element by local musicians; foreign language films that cannot be seen elsewhere locally. We often have a big list of possibilities that we gradually hone into, until we find something that we think will be interesting to a sizeable audience.

Q. Do you take recommendations from the general public?

Q. How did you choose the name? We want our community cinema to be somewhere that people come to socialise as well as seeing great movies. Talkies seemed to capture that idea and had a resonance with cinema history.

We are always up for a good idea – so yes! Not all ideas are viable but we have done this several times through the feedback part of our website. An example is a Halloween event we are currently planning for October which came from a member of the public just recently.


WWW.ENFIELDFESTIVALS.COM JUNE - SEPTEMBER ENFIELD FESTIVALS SUMMER 2014

An experienc e that makes

Q. Are there any venues in Enfield you don’t currently visit but would love to? Probably lots, but not all are suitable for showing films. We have run events in social clubs, empty shop units , pubs, cafés and proper cinemas. Our ideal venue is one that is free to use, seats about 50 or more, has high ceilings so everyone can see the screen and has food and drink available. However, there are not many of those around so we are always interested in hearing about new possibilities!

people happy

Q. How much do you value the support from the venues you visit? Our venues are quite diverse, but our most regular locations are in Palmers Green at the Fox pub and Baskervilles Tea Shop and in Enfield at The Dugdale Centre. All have a different character and that is what our audience enjoys. The Dugdale is good for World Cinema, there is always a great atmosphere at The Fox and Baskervilles is cosier with a chance to have food and drink before and after the film.

Q. If you could sum up Talkies in one word what would it be? Stimulating – we aim to make Talkies interesting and enjoyable – even when films are quite challenging.

Q. Is there anything else you would like to share with the lovely Enfield readers?

Q. It must be a fantastic experience for film enthusiasts… how crucial are your volunteers in supporting the project? Our organisation is entirely built on the enthusiasm and commitment of volunteers. We have had volunteers to introduce films, play live music, sort out projection, take tickets on the door, design posters, market events, sell tickets – the list goes on. We hope that we provide, in return, an experience that makes people happy.

Just that our communities feel they have an ownership over Talkies – it is theirs – and we try to find new and interesting things that they will enjoy. We have found it a great way to bring people together. You too can have a cinema group in your own community and we are happy to advise you on how to do it!

Remembering Enfield’s Fallen Heroes Every year on the first Sunday after September 15th, the Enfield community comes together to remember all those who heroically sacrificed their lives serving in the R.A.F and the Commonwealth Air Forces. Young men and women of the R.A.F Association and the Air Training Corps Squadrons form a parade to renew their dedication and show respect to the Veterans and civic dignitaries of Enfield. The parade, organised by the Enfield Branch of the Royal Air Forces Association, is a deeply moving day and a time to remember how many lives of Enfield men were lost. The charity, formed in 1943, is vital in giving support to R.A.F service and ex-service personnel in their hour of need alongside their families and close dependents.

The Royal Air Forces Association, as we know it, came into being Sunday 21 September 3pm, Enfield War Memorial, Chase Gardens. during the height of WW2 in 1943.

WHITEWEBBS MUSEUM OF TRANSPORT Whitewebbs Museum is housed in a Victorian Pumping Station, built in 1898. The main building originally contained two steam engines that were used to pump water from a well into the New River and into London.

The Museum’s vast collection is housed over four floors in the main building and in the fire station and display hall. There are a wide range of vehicles including a 1912 John Morris fire engine fondly known as ‘Madelaine’, Commercial Vehicles, a variety of motorbikes, bicycles (housed on the Stan Chamberlaine Floor), a collection of typewriters, cameras and memorabilia from the War Years. Visitors particularly enjoy the original engine room crane, still on its tracks. Out in the yard there are work bays where vehicle maintenance is carried out, leading to the Stationary Engine room which houses the large Crossley Engine. On special days it is “fired up” and with a large 2.25m flywheel it makes an impressive sight. There is also a railway carriage which houses 2 model railway layouts - a grand visit for children and enthusiasts.
