From Brixton with love: Brosnan’s new mission is to save community theatre | Film | The Guardian

From Brixton with love: Brosnan’s new mission is to save community theatre | Film | The Guardian
 The current Ovalhouse centre in Kennington, south London
... Brosnan, 63, first joined a drama workshop at Ovalhouse in the 1960s and now, in response to an appeal for an extra £2m of funding, he has made a short film in support of the organisation. The small arts centre in Kennington, near the Oval cricket ground, is about to move to a new home in neighbouring Brixton and has secured an initial £130,600 Arts Council grant (as part of a potential £3m) and raised more than £6m. ...

This Northern Line Cheat Will Save You Minutes On Every Commute | Londonist

This Northern Line Cheat Will Save You Minutes On Every Commute | Londonist
... What if the first train you board at Hampstead is going via Charing Cross? In that case, things aren’t quite so simple. For a start, most Charing Cross trains terminate at Kennington — only during peak times do a few services go all the way to Morden. Riding all the way through to Balham normally isn't even an option.
Thankfully, changing at Kennington doesn't slow you down too much. The average wait at Kennington for a southbound service is just 90 seconds, and the onward trip to Balham takes 11 minutes. Your total journey time is 1½ minutes (waiting) + 21 minutes (to Kennington) + 1½ minutes (waiting) + 11 minutes (to Balham) = 35 minutes. ...
... To the savvy traveller, however, this extra complication is a red herring. Since Balham is south of Kennington, pretty much every train that comes through will be going up the Bank branch. If you were to go all the way to Hampstead on one of these trains, you'd be looking at an average of 3 minutes (waiting) + 38 minutes (to Hampstead) = a tiresome 41-minute journey.
You can do a bit better by catching the first train that arrives at Balham — regardless of its eventual destination — then changing at Kennington for the Charing Cross branch of the Northern line. You'll have to factor in waiting time, however, since again every other service will be going to High Barnet. You can expect a total journey time of 1½ minutes (waiting) + 12 minutes (to Kennington) + 3 minutes (waiting) + 22 minutes (to Hampstead) = 39½ minutes. It's faster than staying on the Bank branch, but not by much. ...

Tania is known for her moving and monumental paintings of hounds and horses on huge square canvases. Brought up hunting in North Yorkshire, she was advised by a tutor at the City & Guilds, Kennington, where she did her MA, to stop painting hunting—but it turned out that he’d had his vegetable patch trampled by hounds. ...

The Tony Cozier I knew -- NationNews Barbados -- Local, Regional and International News nationnews.com
... The BBC played a clip that so sad last week Wednesday of Cozier commentating at the end of the fifth Test of the 1984 series against England, at Kennington Oval in London. The West Indies had completed a 5-0 whitewash/blackwash – call it what you want – of the hosts, the people who brought cricket to these islands and territories which TC represented so well for more than half a century. ...

Cozier: A man who had time for me - Columns - JamaicaObserver.com
... Deep down, I think Tony empathised with me, because, I mirrored in a sense, his own situation. There was West Indies cricket, whose identity, power and glory, were being paraded by mostly black men. It was never said, but I know he sensed it. Why shouldn’t it be a black man who is carrying the West Indies game to all the corners of the earth? In his commentary and writing, Tony had to answer that question every time he sat before a microphone or put pen to paper. He answered it with spot-on analysis, and spot-on critique. He refused to give his detractors any loopholes. In his mind, West Indies cricket belonged as much to him – a white Bajan, as it did to the thousands of black Caribbean fans who flocked to Kennington Oval and to Kensington Oval. I saw his gaining acceptance, as a struggle similar to mine. And because he helped me to fight my battle, I considered him my friend.   ...

What Would Happen If The Northern Line Split In Two? | Londonist

What Would Happen If The Northern Line Split In Two? | Londonist
... The idea of splitting up the Northern line isn't crazy. It originally was two separate lines — the City and South London Railway (running from Morden via Bank to Camden Town) and the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway (running from Kennington to Edgware via Charing Cross, with a spur to Archway from Camden Town).  ... Before that can happen, Camden Town station needs significant upgrade works, as does Kennington, because these stations would become major interchanges between the two lines. ... It seems almost certain that the Edgware branch would run via Charing Cross and terminate at Kennington. Or, quite possibly, terminate at Battersea Power Station — the way TfL has drawn the map of the extension it's quite clearly running on from the Charing Cross branch. The new stations at Nine Elms and Battersea are scheduled to be ready by 2020. ... It's tempting to keep the Northern line name for the Edgware-Kennington/Battersea line and call Barnet-Morden the Southern line. This, however, is a bit boring (though still better than naming a line after another member of the royal family). ...
