New X-ing


NEW-X-ING is an ambitious independent programme aiming to integrate New Cross’s Community and Institutions. One of the first ideas of a street amphitheatre is being implemented with two weeks of performances coming up at the end of the summer.

Share the excitement of a street-stage offering free public performances from Sept 21 to Oct 6 2012.

Contributors range from Blue Grass to Experimental Sound-bending, Trinity Laban choreographic Interventions to children’s street-dance, from spoken poetry to political debate.

The area outside Goldsmiths Library (on Lewisham Way just by the main Goldsmiths building) is a natural gathering point which is easily visible to bus passengers, car drivers, pedestrians and students. For 16 days this autumn there will be the perfect excuse to sit on the steps and enjoy some local culture.

New X-ING Relay has been developed by Artmongers (Deptford X) and funded by Awards for All (part of the Big Lottery fund). The program is in partnership with Goldsmiths College and the London Borough of Lewisham as well as numerous community individuals and organisations.

The Relay is part of New X-ING – a program of creative interventions to shake new life into New Cross led by local artists and community activists Artmongers.

Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen


A little off-manor but definitely worth a visit, if you fancy some amazing home-cooking this weekend then head up over to the Peanut Factory in Hackney Wick for Zoe’s Ghana Kitchen. This little pop-up restaurant serves some of the tastiest West African food around, all in a wonderfully relaxed and intimate environment.

Just back from a stint in Berlin, this will be the last Ghana Kitchen for a while, so get over and try the amazing Peanut Butter Stew, as well as some other traditional dishes like Red Red or Goat with Jollof rice. The restaurant is open for lunchtime (1-4pm) and evening seatings (7-11pm) on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th, though you will need to book in advance. There is either a meat or veggie option, priced at just £20 per person for three courses, along with a free drink on the house. It’s great value. Zoe also operates a BYOB policy.

To book, follow the link to the facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/events/478584152166336/
