Talkies Community Cinema: HERE Film festival

Posted on March 5, 2016 at 13:42 0 Comments

HERE FILM FESTIVAL is about the diversity of interests, people and places in the suburbs of London. HERE is not in the West End, Southbank or Shoreditch. HERE in the suburbs we aren't the swanky super-rich, the celebrity glitterati or bearded hipsters.  HERE is where the cinema creatives of London produce…

This year, 2015 marks the centenary of one the best known illustrators you have probably never heard of… Yet anyone growing up in the 50s, 60s or 70s is likely to recognise the images of Robert Norton Ayton even if you do not know his name.

Robert Ayton was born in Russell Road Bowes Park during the Great War in May 1915 the second of four sons of…

Spouters Corner - A local tradition of political free speech.

We have become used to Election Campaigns conducted via broadcast media: leader debates live on TV, party Twitter feeds and viral videos on YouTube. Very different from earlier days when politics relied much more on face-to-face discussions, public meetings and rallies; campaigning “on the stump”.

Just along the road in Wood Green is Spouters…

Thank you for the message, Richard. I moved to Wolves Lane in 2004 and I like Middleton Road. I accidentally walked into a street event there where I experienced great community spirit.

I'm afraid I told a small lie when I registered for the forum. I listed my address as Arundel Gardens in N21. In fact that was my last address back in 1969, after that I stayed at Truro road. I was a regular at Fishmongers Arms and Springfield Park Tavern. I now live in a village called Crowhurst, near Battle in East Sussex. I still have strong memories of the area having worked at Express Motors and a spell as Road Sweeper.

Thanks again,

Thank you Richard for your welcome, it is many years since I lived in the area, but it was the are of my teenage ramblings as you will see if you look at my website

I am currently in the middle of writing my biography and this area does feature in it!! I may have to ask people questons on here about it when my memory fails me :-)
