Ethelred Holiday Club - October 2011: Celebrating Black History

Hamlet arrives at the Young Vic!

Dear Friends,

Please find below an invitation to book tickets for your group to come along and see Hamlet at the Young Vic.

I would love you to join us at the Young Vic to experience a very different and very exciting staging of one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays.

Due to the high demand of tickets for this show (we are already SOLD OUT to the general public) there are couple of things to bear in mind when requesting tickets…

  1. You must allocate one group leader. This person will receive a confirmation from me and also be responsible for picking up the tickets on the night for their group. I will need an email and phone number for this person.
  1. I completely understand how difficult groups can be to organise and that sometimes people can not come along at the last minute, but please do your best to ensure that all your tickets are used. Once booked and confirmed, just let me know of the numbers change. I will have people on a waiting list that will be very happy to come along if you have cancellations!
  1. If anyone in your group has ANY access requirements, I will need to know as soon as possible, to ensure that I can accommodate them in the best way possible. It may not be possible to accommodate requests on the night that you arrive at the theatre.
  1. These free tickets are on offer to any community group in Lambeth or Southwark. We have a particular focus on welcoming people who may not have visited the theatre before. We are more than happy to help with making your visit here as easy and accessible as possible – just get in touch and have a chat if you would like further information about the show, the Young Vic, or bringing first time theatre goers to the Young Vic!

We are really excited about being able to offer these free tickets to our local community and we hope that you will be able to bring along some people from your group.

Please see the information attached which gives details of the dates we have free ticket availability.

Gunpowder Theatre



By Bertold Brecht

"Truth can be written in ink.

Lies must be written in blood."

Paris, 1871.
The end of the bitter Franco Prussian war and the people of Paris are starving within their city walls.

The national government have set up in Versailles leaving the city without leadership. 
In the uprising of a people to claim what is rightfully theirs, and the fight to keep it, comes a question still valid today: must peace be sacrificed to be achieved?

Brecht's most ambitious (and rarely performed) historical play and his last original work explores the Paris Commune, one of the first workers' revolutions and the model for Communism as we know it today.

Revived by Gunpowder Theatre in association with the White Bear Theatre.

This play is part of the White Bear's Revolution, Reaction and Reform Season, which will include Count Oderland by Max Frisch and The Sixteenth Floor by Ayn Rand, which explore the inevitable conflict between collective
action and individual choice.

Count Oderland was on Kenneth Tynan's list of un-produced plays which he believed should be produced by the National.  Ayn Rand is the author of the
hugely influential The fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged.

Gallery Talk: Sunday 23 October

Since I got my first camera as a teenager, I have been taking photos of places I have visited, documenting their natural beauty which I have always been attracted to. Growing up in the countryside created a bond between me and nature which I have always carried with me and has influenced my passion for landscape photography. I am finding peace being far away from the constant buzz of cities and walking around with my camera. Taking a picture I am experiencing moments of ‘stillness’ and feel like I am a part of it all.
Images which are important to me are not necessarily the most beautiful ones, but those with a story behind them, where I have experienced something… that could have been a massive storm, days of solitude or simply waking up being on top of the mountain and enjoying the first sun rays caressing my face gently.
I have been always interested in the link between human beings and the surroundings where they lived, the way place/nature shape them and leave its mark on human body and soul.
Another thing which interests me is the scale/proportion…. there is no better place than mighty mountains to realise that we are so small and insignificant, that we are just visiting and those places have been there for millions of years, quite often unchanged and not really inhabited.
The exhibition consists of black and white landscapes from Hebrides, Poland, Slovakia, Wales and other places. Some of the images were taken on black and white film, transparencies and even IR film. Finally some of them are digital photographs converted into black and white images in postproduction. Most of the images are part of my other projects and I have put them together for this exhibition.

Landscape inspirations : Ansel Adams, Paul Caponigro, Aaron Siskind, Jerry Uelsmann and more.
Dariusz Adamek – born in Walbrzych, Poland in May 1978. He holds a degree (BA) in Photography and New Media from Academy of Fine Arts in Poznan, Poland. In 2003 he moved to London and started working as a freelance photographer/image editor, specialising in fashion, beauty and product photography.
Despite his commercial specialisation, Dariusz is a keen landscape / travel photographer — he has won awards for his photographic work and has had exhibitions in the UK, Poland, France, Czech Republic and Germany.
He is also interested in pinhole photography, long time exposures, traditional special effects (Sabattier’s effect, multiple exposures, infra red photography, split-toning, pigment techniques etc.) as well as abstract compositions.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH: Lambeth Police emphasises the importance of registering the IMEI number of your phone (of any model)

Stockwell Park Conservation Area

Neighbourhood Watch

Neighbourhood Watch Coordinator David Tomlinson

Following on from my recent note about the spate of IPhone robberies near Stockwell Tube and Stockwell Road, this circular (in Item 1) from Lambeth Police emphasises the importance of registering the IMEI number of your phone (of any model) – see Item 2 for details:

1.    Mobile phone IMEI numbers lead to arrests in Lambeth

For the week ending 25 September 2011 the National Mobile Phone Unit (NMPU) has reported that Lambeth Borough Police is the highest performing borough in the whole of the MPS for conducting IMEI checks on the National Mobile Property Register during ‘Stop and Searches’ and for prisoners in custody. This has resulted in three arrests over the past six days.
This top performance follows recent weeks of activity led by Lambeth officers to increase the recording and searching of IMEI numbers for stolen mobile phones.
The International Mobile Equipment Identity number (IMEI) is a unique number associated with every mobile phone handset and if registered, can help police find your mobile phone if stolen.
As part of their action in recovering stolen mobile phones and arresting thieves, officers have:
·         Obtained all IMEI numbers from victims of crime where a mobile phone was stolen
·         Conducted IMEI checks on the National Mobile Property Register (NMPR) before reporting a crime
·         Conducted IMEI checks on the NMPR during stop and searches on the street
·         Conducted IMEI checks on the NMPR for phones belonging to prisoners in police custody
The three arrests for possession of a stolen phone by means of robbery when the IMEI was checked during separate stop and searches were a sixteen year old youth from south Lambeth, a seventeen year old youth from Brixton, and a thirteen year old youth from Clapham.
2.         To find your mobile phone IMEI number, simply dial the sequence *#06# into the phone. The unique 15 digit IMEI code of your cell phone will be instantly displayed. Copy it and keep it in a safe place so that you can find it when your phone is misplaced or stolen. You can also find the IMEI number by checking the compliance plate under the battery.
            Then register it (free) at
Apart from enabling police officers to check immediately if a phone has been stolen, registration is useful in other ways.  If your mobile phone gets misplaced, lost, or stolen, you can inform the network provider who can then put the IMEI number for the phone on a shared database. This list stops this particular phone from registering on any network and will be useless for anyone even if the mobile phone’s SIM card is changed.
3.         As part of an anti burglary drive, Lambeth Police will soon be distributing ultra violet pens to every household in the Borough.  These will enable you to mark indelibly attractive items such as cameras, TVs, laptops etc with your house number and postcode.  All patrol officers will be equipped with key-fob u/v detectors so that they can check the ‘home location’ of such items on the spot when they come across them in the course of car searches, personal stop and searches, residential property searches etc.
These initiatives in Lambeth stem in part from constructive discussions Trisha and I, together with a colleague from the south of the Borough, had with senior Lambeth Police officers earlier this year.
