A Clockmaker’s Obsession 

World premiere of a new musical with crashing waves, swelling music, and an emotional storm across the 18th century that will make you wish you’d brought your life jacket. 

Come with us on an epic voyage across time and space to share the trials of a simple clockmaker who lost almost everything in his quest to save others.

A white far-right party leader.
A black Caribbean diplomat.
And a white Oxford-educated Home Office government official.

They all give a speech. On the same day, at different times, in various locations.

They all give a speech about the one million people who migrated from the Caribbean to Britain between 1948-1973 (The Windrush Generation) and the scandal that followed in 2018.

Jean Ramsey, Prints and Drawings @ Highgate Gallery
Jul 5 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The work Jean Ramsey is showing at Highgate Gallery results from an interest in the relationship
between the drawn and the printed image. It follows on from her studies in photography that
culminated in an exhibition of gum-bichromate prints. This early process utilises the sun to develop
a prepared light-sensitive emulsion that when applied to paper with a pronounced surface or
‘tooth’ can result in a painterly quality.
Jean’s degree in Fine Art (sculpture) from King’s College, Newcastle, then the University of Durham,
included a Hatton Scholarship year.  She acknowledges the initial influence of an inspired teacher
in north London, Nommie Durell, whose mantra ‘no day without a line’ continues to resonate with her.
The three-dimensional disciplines of sculpture and her experience in set design established form and structure
as crucial elements in her work and have become the foundation for her current exploration in two-dimensions.
Using traditional subject matter, principally self-portraiture and studies of people she knows well, every
work begins with a drawing.
“Having worked in collaboration with others over the years, as a practitioner and as a teacher, this exhibition
is the result of a not altogether conscious decision to revert to personal discovery through drawing
(seeing) and manipulating (printing)”.
The earlier prints are mainly soft-ground etchings and mezzotints, the later work frequently becoming
monoprints by the combination of inscribing by etching and drawing directly into the inked plate.
There are some preliminary studies and proof prints from the most current work on display in which the
visual development of the idea can be traced. Man Ray, known principally for his photography, describes
painting as “.…an adventure in which some great force might suddenly change the whole aspect of
things….”, echoed by Julian Trevelyan’s ….”collaboration with the god of chance….”, also a reference to painting.
Jean Ramsey’s exhibition of prints suggest the transformation that takes place, from close examination of the
subject, the analysis, via the rigour and fluidity of the printing process that can lead to unforeseen results.
Some earlier gum-bichromate photographic prints, although not hung, are available to view in a portfolio
and the artist will be in attendance throughout the exhibition’s run to discuss her work.

East London Shakespeare Festival: Much Ado About Nothing @ Lauderdale House
Jul 10 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

East London Shakespeare Festival is heading to Lauderdale House with sparkling rom-com Much Ado About Nothing.

Sun-soaked mischief & romance under the Mediterranean stars. Set against the luxurious backdrop of a modern-day Messina, this opulent tale is brimming with wit, trickery & mischief with heart coming out on top. With ELSF’s trademark contemporary twists and turns, high-energy party numbers and audience participation. A family friendly night!

The East London Shakespeare Festival (ELSF) merges the contemporary culture of London with the inspirational storytelling of Shakespeare’s plays in outdoor parks and community spaces across London. They launched in 2021 with a magical, riotous, sold-out production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (receiving an Off West End Award Nomination for Best Company), an 80’s inspired Twelfth Night in 2022 and another Off West End Award Nomination for Best Company Ensemble for Romeo & Juliet in 2023. A festival vibe will be encouraged with gates opening an hour before the show, so bring a picnic and why not sign up for a mask-making workshop run one of our in-house-party-goers (actors) – make your own mask and be part of the masked party!

Parental Guidance – the play features kissing. The show is directed by Rosie Ward. The producers – and co-directors of the East London Shakespeare Festival – are: Ursula Early & Rosie Ward.

visual development of the idea can be traced. Man Ray, known principally for his photography, describes
painting as “.…an adventure in which some great force might suddenly change the whole aspect of
things….”, echoed by Julian Trevelyan’s ….”collaboration with the god of chance….”, also a reference to painting.
Jean Ramsey’s exhibition of prints suggest the transformation that takes place, from close examination of the
subject, the analysis, via the rigour and fluidity of the printing process that can lead to unforeseen results.
Some earlier gum-bichromate photographic prints, although not hung, are available to view in a portfolio
and the artist will be in attendance throughout the exhibition’s run to discuss her work.

East London Shakespeare Festival: Much Ado About Nothing @ Lauderdale House
Jul 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

East London Shakespeare Festival is heading to Lauderdale House with sparkling rom-com Much Ado About Nothing.

Sun-soaked mischief & romance under the Mediterranean stars. Set against the luxurious backdrop of a modern-day Messina, this opulent tale is brimming with wit, trickery & mischief with heart coming out on top. With ELSF’s trademark contemporary twists and turns, high-energy party numbers and audience participation. A family friendly night!

The East London Shakespeare Festival (ELSF) merges the contemporary culture of London with the inspirational storytelling of Shakespeare’s plays in outdoor parks and community spaces across London. They launched in 2021 with a magical, riotous, sold-out production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream (receiving an Off West End Award Nomination for Best Company), an 80’s inspired Twelfth Night in 2022 and another Off West End Award Nomination for Best Company Ensemble for Romeo & Juliet in 2023. A festival vibe will be encouraged with gates opening an hour before the show, so bring a picnic and why not sign up for a mask-making workshop run one of our in-house-party-goers (actors) – make your own mask and be part of the masked party!

Parental Guidance – the play features kissing. The show is directed by Rosie Ward. The producers – and co-directors of the East London Shakespeare Festival – are: Ursula Early & Rosie Ward.

Jean Ramsey, Prints and Drawings @ Highgate Gallery
Jul 12 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

The work Jean Ramsey is showing at Highgate Gallery results from an interest in the relationship
between the drawn and the printed image. It follows on from her studies in photography that
culminated in an exhibition of gum-bichromate prints. This early process utilises the sun to develop
a prepared light-sensitive emulsion that when applied to paper with a pronounced surface or
‘tooth’ can result in a painterly quality.
Jean’s degree in Fine Art (sculpture) from King’s College, Newcastle, then the University of Durham,
included a Hatton Scholarship year.  She acknowledges the initial influence of an inspired teacher
in north London, Nommie Durell, whose mantra ‘no day without a line’ continues to resonate with her.
The three-dimensional disciplines of sculpture and her experience in set design established form and structure
as crucial elements in her work and have become the foundation for her current exploration in two-dimensions.
Using traditional subject matter, principally self-portraiture and studies of people she knows well, every
work begins with a drawing.
“Having worked in collaboration with others over the years, as a practitioner and as a teacher, this exhibition
is the result of a not altogether conscious decision to revert to personal discovery through drawing
(seeing) and manipulating (printing)”.
The earlier prints are mainly soft-ground etchings and mezzotints, the later work frequently becoming
monoprints by the combination of inscribing by etching and drawing directly into the inked plate.
There are some preliminary studies and proof prints from the most current work on display in which the
visual development of the idea can be traced. Man Ray, known principally for his photography, describes
painting as “.…an adventure in which some great force might suddenly change the whole aspect of
things….”, echoed by Julian Trevelyan’s ….”collaboration with the god of chance….”, also a reference to painting.
