My next community charity event is in July 2018 with some very special guests on the opening night.
The Hanbury Hall has a fascinating history that dates back to 1719. Originally built as a small Hugenot chapel, it has accommodated many different East London congregations over the years eventually becoming part of Christ Church in 1887. Charles Dickens was a regular visitor in the 1800s using the building for public readings of his works and in 1888 the Match Girls held their strike meetings here as they prepared to protest against working conditions at the nearby Bryant and May factory.
Please watch this space for further developments. Best Wishes.
Grateful thanks and appreciation to all who participated / attended over the weekend and contributed to the festival’s success.
As an actor and storyteller, sometime writer, broadcaster and inveterate liar Dawn has told stories all her life. Dawn sees stories as the spice in our daily life and the bedrock of culture – stories are the lens through which we experience our lives. She is a compelling storyteller, inhabiting her characters, as she performs traditional Myths and Fairy tales publicly and privately, or wherever she finds a carelessly opened door. This autumn and winter she is performing at Pentameters Theatre Hampstead, Surrey Storytellers and Putney Waterstones. In the guise of After Dinner Storyteller (London)‚ she spends the winters infiltrating homes, inviting participants to curl up in front of the fire, and sip hot toddies, while she treats them to traditional folk, ghost and seasonal stories. She is inspired by nature and the elements, and spends August in Greece, spinning tales with friends under a star-strewn Mediterranean sky. Dawn will be story telling on Saturday evening.
Alexandra Willis is a Wellness Advocate for dōTERRA, the world leading Pure Essential Oils company. Alex says: ‘I joined dōTERRA over a year ago as I had some health issues that were not getting resolved using conventional methods. I made a decision to start taking care of my health naturally and to start using dōTERRA for my health needs and I could not believe the truly incredible results, both issues that I had suffered with for years, disappeared and I was able to start doing things that previously were not possible. It was at this point that I wanted to start sharing these oils with those around me. These oils are a beautiful gift of nature, and have been used in natural medicine practices for thousands of years. It is my hope and my passion that many more people will look to take care of themselves as I have done, the benefits are undeniable and the effects truly incredible. I want to support people in this journey and help people help themselves. I feel blessed to have found these oils and the other natural products, and I now want to share them all with you.’ Alex will be demonstrating the benefits of dōTERRA essential oils on Sunday.
