Things have been a bit hectic this week with trying to secure votes for the Community Action Award, so we’ve only managed to track down two free events for this weekend, but we hope you’ll agree they’re pretty special…
Rich Mix hosts another Snapshots Festival on Saturday 19th May: Protest, power, struggle and strife: ¡No Pasarán. This will be a day of films, talks, walk, exhibitions and other activities about the many different protests and struggles that have started in the east end. There are activities for all ages and interests, some will need to be booked. Visit the Rich Mix website for the full details.
The 14th Boishakhi Mela takes place around Brick Lane and Weavers Fields on Sunday 20th May. Celebrating Bangladeshi New Year with traditional festivities including a procession, music, dancing and food. The day kicks off with a procession of 300 school children and performing arts groups, and the mela continues on Brick Lane and in Weaver’s Fields with live bands, DJs, a fun-fair, market and food stalls. This year sees the introduction of a youth stage featuring Bollywood singing star Ash King as well as other British Asian and international artists. For full details of the timetable and acts, visit the Boishakhi Mela website.
There is still time to vote for us in the Community Action Awards. If we win it would make such a difference to the customers of the Boundary Estate Community Launderette. We would be able to start our much-needed programme of replacing and upgrading the twenty year old machines. Voting is by text which is charged at normal text rate.The poll closes on Sunday 20th May at midnight.
