Peace March leaving from Kennington Park, SE11

According to an article in Southwark news, there is to be a peace march against knife crime, organised (in part) by The Damilola Taylor Trust later this month. The march is to be called "The Peoples' March", which is a fitting tribute to Kennington Park's history of organised revolution and ferment.

The report also notes that two individuals, Sharon Singh and Gemma Allway organised support for the march through Facebook. I think it's fantastic when networking technology allows for friends to organise strangers to march together for peace. I googled the two of them and found that The Mirror has a photo of them alongside their description of themselves as "two ordinary Londoners who can't bear to see any more dead children on the news".

The march will congregate in Kennington Park on 20th September at 10am, depart at 11am and will culminate with a rally in Hyde Park at 2pm. It is specifically organised as a peace march, and not a protest march.

I will go. I might even make a "Lurking about SE11 for peace" banner, but I'm only little and it's a lot to get on one banner!!

Two posts in one day? You're like bendy buses - nothing for ages and then you all come at once.

Bring back the Routemaster is what I say!

NEW THEATRE INITIATIVE ‘A STAGE KINDLY’ LAUNCHES WITH A NIGHT OF SHOWSTOPPING NUMBERS FROM INTERNATIONAL NEW MUSICALS
SEVERAL TALENTED COMPOSERS WILL HAVE THEIR WORK SUNG FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THE LONDON STAGE IN AN EXCITING PROGRAMME OF FRESH MUSICAL THEATRE WRITING FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

Two nights only! 26th October and 7th November.

Two prestigious London venues – The Rosemary Branch Theatre and the Battersea Barge – play host to the debut of ‘A Stage Kindly Presents’ this Autumn. Featuring music from no less than eleven new musicals, sung by a stellar cast of singers.
Produced by Giles Howe and Katy Lipson, with musical direction by Katy Lipson, the ‘A Stage Kindly’ initiative is to offer composers from around the world a chance to have their music exposed in one of the world’s most important cities of musical theatre. It is also to offer the theatre-going public an alternative to the blockbuster West End shows; introducing a wealth of fantastic work that is often obscured by these shows’ shadows.

The show will be performed in London on two different nights, on Sunday 26th October at the Battersea Barge (Vauxhall), and Friday 7th November at the Rosemary Branch Theatre (Islington). Both venues are fully-licensed, and serve excellent food. Curtain up at 8pm.
