Event Work in Progress presents

‘Belonging’ 2pm - Wed 22nd, Thurs 23rd, Fri 24th, Sat 25th and Sun 26th July 2015 at Northfield Beach - Rainbow Tent Victoria Common, Northfield, Birmingham There’s a girl out there who feels like she belongs with nobody else but him. The faded blood stains hanging on the washing line as her life hangs in the balance. There’s a boy out there who feels he has never felt at home, the household feuds uproot the family tree and he’s just not strong enough to stop it from toppling. There’s a man out there who has never understood the world he lives in. From starry nights to city lights, he walks the streets desperately holding onto hope of a better tomorrow. There’s a woman out there who feels she doesn’t fit in somewhere she spends, what feels like, every waking moment. Working earns her the money she has no passion left to spend. There’s a family out there desperately seeking refuge but the message is clear, there’s no room at the inn. But then, there’s us. There’s me and you. And we’ll be okay.

‘Belonging ’ is a family friendly the atre performan ce suitable for all ages.

Work in Progress (WiP) is an arts organisation doing good stuff with, for and by children and young people. As well as creating theatre (remember After the Event on Northfield High Street, summer 2013?) We also deliver all sorts of workshops, projects and even awards for young people. Check us out: www.workinprogress.uk.com • info@workinprogress.uk.com • 0121 476 1837 • @WiPArtsUK


Culture Mash is back!... Bigger, brighter and even more fun packed than ever before! Northfield Culture Mash is now entering its fourth year and this year there will be events running throughout the whole month of July, kicking off with the Northfield Carnival on the 4th of July. There are events every weekend on Price’s Square and a range of activities throughout the week of the 22nd - 26th of July. Don’t miss the stunning Titan the Robot on 25th of July who will be performing on Price’s Square and Tay’s Corner. Further to public demand and to bring even more free activities to the people of Northfield the ever popular beach will now be held on Victoria Common, providing more places to relax, picnic, and enjoy the beautiful scenery. New additions for this year will include an Arts Village, Eco Village, and the Rainbow Tent which will host an array of drama, poetry, theatre and dance. Daily drumming workshops will also be held throughout the day. As usual we will have a wide range of music throughout the five days ranging from reggae, to soul, blues, samba, traditional ceilidh, Dhol drummers and more... We will also be holding cooking demonstrations, food tasting and have a go sample sessions, promoting fresh, healthy, tasty food, hosted by the yum tum club. Behind the scenes at the Community Partnership we are working hard to bring you the best Culture Mash ever! Although these events are free* we would like to encourage people to bring a tin of food to the event which will help support our food bank and help those in need. (collection points will be available around the site). So, why not spend a day at the beach, bring a picnic, take part in one or two of our fantastic workshops, shake your stuff along to the live music on offer, catch a play or watch Punch and Judy on Price’s Square. Northfield is a great place to visit, shop and enjoy and we hope to see you at one of the events detailed in this booklet. Rebecca Debenham Chief Executive Officer Northfield Community Partnership We would like to thank all of our kind sponsors for allowing us to bring you all the Culture Mash 2015 events. Thank you: Northfield BID, Bromford Housing Associaiton, Middlemore Trust, Arts 50 Alive, Arts Council and Awards For All. N.B *some activities on Price’s Square will incur a charge.

Eco-village Northfield Ecocentre will be closing down for the week and de-camping to Victoria Common to set up an Ecovillage which will include:

Cycle South Brum - get on your bike, get some

tuition, learn some basic maintenance tips, find out how to hire a cycle for free and hear about our led bike rides

Future Northfield - discover how green Northfield is already, ask questions about energy and recycling and, more importantly, have your say in the future of a greener and more sustainable Northfield

Incredible Edible Northfield - come and

learn about the community gardens, urban harvest and other projects that exist in Northfield from the volunteers who make it possible

Green Generations - a range of eco-activities for children including making instruments from recycled materials During the week we will be joined by a range of organisations including: Birmingham Organic Growers, Birmingham Beekeepers, Birmingham and Black Country Wildlife Trust, Friends of the Earth and the Ecocentre Sewing and Gardening Groups.

Also... Hunt for mini-beasts, mend a bike, watch bees,

forage for food, try a new skill, ask a question, discover community gardens, learn how to ride your bike and to grow your own food but most of all be part of Northfield’s greener future.
