Open Coffee Morning and Environment Committee Members Surgery @ Highgate Society
Mar 25 @ 10:30 am – 12:00 pm
Highgate councillors’ surgery @ Jacksons Lane
Mar 25 @ 11:00 am – 12:00 pm

Highgate councillors hold a surgery at Jacksons Lane on the 1st and 3rd Saturday mornings, and at the HLSI (Highgate Literary and Scientific Society, South Grove, Pond Square) on the 2nd and 4th Saturday mornings. There is no surgery on 5th Saturdays.

Councillors’ surgeries provide the opportunity for a constituent to meet one of his/her councillors face-to-face. The purpose is usually to discuss and hopefully to help resolve a local or personal issue in which Haringey council has or could have a role. Meeting at a surgery can be particularly useful when there are numerous documents relevant to the issue. Surgeries are normally held in the cafe or foyer area of Jacksons Lane theatre, but a private space is available if required. No booking is needed.

Highgate Hill Farmers Market @ St Joseph's Catholic Primary School
Mar 26 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Highgate Hill Farmers Market @ St Joseph's Catholic Primary School | London | England | United Kingdom

A new weekly Sunday farmers market for the community.

We’re delighted to be hosted by St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School.

St Joseph’s are especially delighted to celebrate the opening of the Market with the School’s 10th anniversary in September of the ‘St Joseph’s Children’s Garden’ project, enabling children in the Community to sell their garden produce and share their growing expertise.

Produce will include; Freshly pressed juice, soft fruit and top fruit in season, vegetables and salads.  Organic & free range meat, raw milk, cheese, plants & flowers, handmade preserves, herbs, pies, cakes and bread, wet fish and shellfish, free range eggs.

Something for everyone.

All farms are based within 100 miles of London and everyone is visited before they sell with us. Secondary producers such as jam makers have to use a minimum of 50% local ingredients and we ask bakers to use seasonal ingredients and free range/organic eggs. We’ll do our best to include locally based producers, anyone interested should get in touch with us as soon as possible.

Swish and Style @ Jacksons Lane
Mar 26 @ 12:30 pm – 3:00 pm

Tired of your t-shirts? Wish you had some different dresses? Save money by bringing along your unwanted (but wearable) clothes to our Swish and Style event and go home with a new-to-you outfit, all for free!

It’s simple. Have a clear out and bring good quality clothes to one of our seven events. For each item you bring, you get a token that you can exchange for another garment (maximum 10 items). Everything is free, everything is clean and everything will be re-worn and re-loved.

How it works

For the first hour (12.30 – 1.30), everyone is invited to drop off their clothes, shoes and accessories that they want to donate. Whilst we busily sort them into style and hang them on hangers, you’ll be free to check out the workshops – learning how to do simple fixes to your clothes and how to upcycle them into something completely different – a jumper becomes a hot water bottle cover, a treasured Babygro becomes a patchwork memory blanket and an old t-shirt becomes a bag. If you have any clothes that need a little TLC, bring them along and our seamstress can fix them for you for free while you wait.

The from 2pm until 3pm, you get to look through all the clothes and choose what you want. If you love it, take it. It’s first come, first served – but no elbows please!

What can you bring?

Please bring along:

  • Clean and wearable clothes, shoes and accessories
  • No damage, holes and stains
  • You can bring women’s, men’s, children’s and baby clothes
  • No underwear please, unless in sealed, unworn condition

Anything that we deem unacceptable will be given back to you and you will not be given a token. We have the right to turn away any item.

Please note only adults will be allowed at events. Parents with children under the age of 12 can bring them but they must remain under the parents’ supervision at all times.

Any clothes that are left over at the end of the event will be donated to the Salvation Army.

Yoga in Pond Square @ Highgate United Reformed Church
Mar 28 @ 1:05 pm – 1:55 pm

Weekly, drop-in class – suitable for all levels, complete beginners welcome. Mats provided. Free parking. I teach Hatha yoga (with Yin, Scarivelli and Pilates influences) – a gentle style that still delivers strength and flexibility in a safe manner and I incorporate pranayama (breathing exercises) into all my classes. Classes are light-hearted, fun and enjoyable.

I tailor classes towards the needs of our modern society. For instance for computer users, to try and neutralise some of the negative effects of office work such as releasing hunched neck/shoulders, stretching the spine, releasing the hips and hamstrings after long periods of sitting. Hopefully, after each class, you will feel relaxed, re-energised, de-stressed, calm and a little bit stronger and stretchier! Come every week or just turn up to the occasional class.

I am well versed in the safety aspects of yoga and can provide modifications or alternatives to poses for anyone with injuries or medical conditions. I have public liability insurance and am a member of the British Wheel of Yoga. Check out my website for testimonials. I also teach private classes in your own home – contact me for details.

I also run a Thursday evening class 7.15pm to 8.30pm (£12) at Holly Lodge Community Centre, 30 Makepeace Avenue, London N6 6HL – but you’ll need to book in with me for this one as spaces are limited.

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do @ Upstairs at the Gatehouse
Mar 29 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Presented by Joseph Hodges Entertainments
Book by Ben H. Winters & Erik Jackson
Music by Neil Sedaka, Howard Greenfield and Phillip Cody
Musical Arrangements by Tom Kitt

29th March – 23rd April 2017

Tuesdays – Saturdays 7.30pm
Sundays at 4pm
Extra matinee Saturday 22nd April at 3pm

This musical comedy features eighteen songs written by pop icon Neil Sedaka including:

“Stupid Cupid”
“Laughter in the Rain”
“Solitaire”
“Oh! Carol”
“Calendar Girl”
and of course the unforgettable title track:
“Breaking Up is Hard to do”
Set during the 1960 Labour Day weekend at “Esther’s Paradise Resort Hotel” in Catskills, New York, the show features friends Marge and Lois from Brooklyn, looking for a good time and romance. They are hoping to find “Where the boys are” as Marge has been jilted at the alter and doesn’t want to be “Solitaire” so takes Lois to her honeymoon destination. Catskills is a resort which showcased young entertainers and Neil Sedaka met his wife of 54 years, Leba, at her Mother’s hotel there and contributed many of his own ventures into the book.

Inevitably two boys come along and the foursome together with Esther and the local comedian whisk us to 1960s colours and costume and the heat of Neil Sedaka’s singable catchy tunes. You WILL leave humming one of your favourites, but which one?

CAST
The cast will feature Robyn Mellor (Grease, Dreamboats and Petticoats, American Idiot) as Lois, Lauren Cocoracchio (Lost Boy) as Marge, Katie Paine (We Will Rock You) as Esther, Jonny Muir (The Simon and Garfunkel Story) as Gabe, Damien Walsh (Sunny Afternoon, Dreamboats and Petticoats) as Del, and Andrew Bradley (Godspell, Annie) as Harvey, completing the cast are Abigail Carter-Simpson (Aliens Love Underpants) and Samuel Bailey (Pop Factor).

Jordan Murphy will direct the production with musical direction from Oliver Hance, design by Richard Cooper, choreography by Alyssa Noble, lighting by Jai Morjaria and Casting by Harry Blumenau for Debbie O’Brien Casting. The production is produced by Joseph Hodges Entertainments.

Will Information Talk @ Jacksons Lane
Mar 30 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Have you thought about making a will?

When we die, our families and friends will want to honour us by carrying out our funeral wishes and they will want to see that our property and possessions are distributed in the way that we have chosen. In both cases, we can take the stress and worry out of these decisions by letting our family and trusted friends know what we want by having a will that specifies our wishes.

Jacksons Lane are holding a will information day on Thursday 30 March at 2pm, at which Rebekah Hillman from Hillman Legal Services (based in Crouch End) will be on hand to offer advice and insight and answer any questions you may have.
