Historian David Starkey is giving a talk on Winston Churchill at Blackheath Halls. The years 1929 to 1939, when Churchill was out of office and out of sympathy with the times, are usually called his Wilderness Years. This lecture suggests they would be better renamed the Marlborough Decade and offers a fascinating insight into how Churchill, the historian and biographer shaped Churchill the politician and war leader. The man who won the Second World War was not Churchill the failed politician but Churchill the author of Marlborough. Friday 3 May at 7:30pm. Admission: £16. www.blackheathhalls.com

HEATHER READY FOR ELECTRIC SOUL FESTIVAL M People star coming to Greenwich this autumn to headline one day O2 event

M

People’s Heather Small is one of the most recognisable voices of ‘90s Britain, nabbing the Best British Dance Act Award at the BRITs in 1994 and 1995 as well as the Mercury Music Prize for the album Elegant Slumming in 1994, writes Laura Burgoine...

Now, the songstress is coming to Greenwich for the Electric Soul Festival, performing much-loved numbers Moving On Up, One Night In Heaven, and Search For The Hero as well as music from her solo career including her iconic single Proud, which soundtracked a host of special events at the London 2012 Olympics. “I’m looking forward to it, particularly under these circumstances with my band and under my own name,” Heather told the Weekender. “The festival has such an eclectic mix of people. I’m honoured to be in the line-up. Everyone’s definitely worth seeing.” The one-day festival for soul lovers is being hosted by legendary DJ Trevor Nelson, and features Heather alongside two of the biggest ever bastions of British bass music: Level 42, and The Brand New Heavies. The line-up also boasts post-Disco hitmakers Kool & The Gang, direct from the USA. “When someone’s on before me, I’m so nervous I can’t watch; it’s a nightmare,” Heather said. “When I’m at the sweet end, I’ll watch the other bands after.” As well as the live musical acts, the Electric Soul Festival features record shops, food stalls, and live DJs around The O2, as the entire venue is taken over for the UK’s biggest funk and soul festival. “You want to do your best. I don’t want to let myself down or anyone else down,” Heather said. “I’m not happy if I don’t meet my own

performances and I do love it,” she said. “On stage there’s seven of us and we sound like 70. It’s just pumping. There’s a drive, there’s an energy.” The singer has enjoyed over two decades in the music biz. “I’m still happy to go on stage and that’s a blessing that I can still find that joy,” she said. “25 years. It’s gone fast. In that time, I’ve also entered into motherhood. I think for myself the best thing is I can still sing, and I still enjoy it,” she said. “I have songs now that people want to hear me sing. I always used to watch Shirley Bassey, Gladys Knight, Aretha Franklin and I’d imagine what it would feel like to have a song where you sing the first few bars and people cheered. For me that song is Proud.” “You can’t be tired or blasé. I never am. Proud is a song that I co-wrote. I could never treat it with disrespect. It’s a real privilege.” When Heather started out singing, her main ambition was to continue singing. “I sang with Tom Jones; he’s amazing, such a voice and a lovely man inside and out. I’ve sung with Sting. I’ve performed at Glastonbury, I played at Manchester stadium. There’s lots of things that have made me give thanks for singing. And it does continue, there’s always something to look forward to.” “I’ve never played with my band at the O2. That’s why I keep singing. It’s something I feel deeply that gives me joy.”

Arts

Makers' market throughout May

Greenwich Market is showcasing the work of local arts and craft designers and makers for the whole month...

Artists on show include: Paper-cut artist Wei Chen, who was commissioned to create HSBC’s 2019 Chinese New Year greeting for their online Business Customers. Wei designed and hand cut a one off animated Chinese folk papercut art version of the HSBC logo being papercut to reveal a paper-cut pig. The piece took over 7 hours to hand cut using just a sculptural knife. Paper cutting is a traditional art in China which began after the invention of paper in Han Dynasty, and became so popular that even the ladies of the royal families were judged by their ability to papercut. Wei’s shop Paper Moon at 4 Greenwich Market opened 12 years ago and features many of her hand cut pictures and cards. Self-taught, Greenwich-based, photographer Kate Jaconello has just had a second of her pictures ‘The London Eye’ featured as BBC England's Big Picture of the Day, following on from her first in December 2018. Kate, who only began photography some 2 years ago, has a stall at Greenwich Market and her work has been featured in publications including The Daily Mail and Guardian Weekly Magazine.

London’s favourite arts and crafts markets. The Market and the independent shops that line the adjacent streets are a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. Gillie Bexson, Property Director at Greenwich Hospital said “Greenwich has a very creative vibe. Just as the art students at the local universities often choose to stay local on graduation, so do the market traders as their businesses grow many of whom have opened studios and shops in the area.” “It is interesting to see how big businesses are now reaching out to the smaller independent designers to help them deliver a fresh, unique experience to their customers,” Gillie continued. “Great experience is what shoppers are looking for today and Greenwich certainly delivers this.’ Kate explains her style, “My shots consist mainly of local Greenwich and London landscapes. I love my local nature shots. I am always amazed how much wildlife there is right under our noses, even in busy London, if we only stop and take the time to look and listen. And when I manage to capture both, well that's the icing on the cake.” Hartwig Braun of Arty Globe is

a fine artist specialising in designled illustrative works, using his architectural background to create expansive, detailed and engaging cityscapes utilising a mixture of organic materials and digital methods. He was commissioned to draw the new IKEA building in its Greenwich surroundings to celebrate its launch in January 2019. Arty Globe started with a stall in

Greenwich Market in August 2008 before the artist opened his shop the following year. Contemporary gallery owner Ben Oakley has quite a reputation for his support of emerging artists. Thanks to Ben many local artists have shown their first exhibition alongside more established artists in his Greenwich based Ben Oakley Gallery. Greenwich Market is one of

NEWS FROM CHARLTON ATHLETIC COMMUNITY TRUST

Youth club welcomes over 75 young people to re-launch

A

fter months of closure, Valley Central Youth Hub re-opened on Monday 8 April, welcoming young people from across the Royal Borough of Greenwich and a number of special guests.

It was an eventful day filled with celebration as local young people and parents came to the newly renovated hub for the first time. There were many activities from arts & crafts to FIFA tournaments, boxing with youth service partner Champions 4 Change and table tennis and pool complemented with food prepared by Young Greenwich staff. Valley Central is one of four main Young Greenwich hubs across the Borough delivered by Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT) on behalf of Royal Greenwich. Singer/Songwriter & Young Greenwich Ambassador Autumn Sherif attended the event and graced the stage with one of her own songs to celebrate the relaunch. Autumn said: “Coming to the Valley Central

laura@weekender.co.uk /

re-launch was really fun. I’m just glad the young people get the opportunity to have a space to come and exercise their freedoms and do what they want to do and get the help that they need.” Charlton Athletic midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey also attended the re-launch. The young people had the opportunity to meet and play table tennis and FIFA against him. Jake said: “It is important because some young people aren’t fortunate enough to be able to take part in activities like this and Charlton are doing a great job in allowing kids to have times to get active and obviously every child needs that.” Councillor Gary Dillon and Cllr Linda Perks, who both represent Charlton Ward, attended the relaunch and enjoyed the events which took place. Linda said: “I’ve not been here before, but I understand you’ve just upgraded all the facilities. I do think it’s impressive and it’s a good facility for young people.” Gary added: “If you’ve got a focal point like this

www.weekender.co.uk 

for the youth of the area, it will play an integral part in the community cohesion. You can see that there’s a good mix of people here from all over Charlton. The positive stuff from within the centre just feeds on to the community.” All guests had the opportunity to see the fantastic redecoration carried out by ADS Painters & Decorators & the fantastic bespoke mural designed by artist Kim Ruiz. Both helped Valley Central get a vibrant new look as part of the re-launch. Unit Manager Rose Ziaei, who managed the event, said: “I’m so pleased our relaunch event was hugely successful in bringing the community together, and it’s been amazing hearing such positive feedback from young people, parents/carers, other youth organisations, councillors, our special guests, and staff. “None of this would’ve been possible without the passion, hard work and dedication of our team at CACT. I’ve been really looking forward to having the youth club back open for young people in the area to have a safe and supportive

space and I was so happy to see 20 young people attending our first youth club session on Tuesday.” Colin Gilham from CACT Principal Partner ITRM was also in attendance. Valley Central offers a range of free activities and sessions to young people aged 10-19 or up to 25 for young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
