Traumatised is a show about growing up and getting hurt and was awarded Best Comedy Show at the Brewery Fringe this year.

The concert is a chance for the older people to get out into the local community and for the children, who may not have grandparents nearby, to interact with older people in a safe, fun and friendly environment. Not to mention having a good old sing and dance with the wonderful Mrs H and the Sing-along Band.
Places are limited so if you or anyone you know would like to come along please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

We create great experiences that entertain our audiences, promote up and coming artists, and support our local communities, through showcasing an eclectic mix of talented artists, all in one night.
Our E17 Pop-Up Show features everything from Belt Up’s brilliant A Cappella to Amy McAllister’s insightful and electrifying poetry, from Hannah White’s soul-stirring singing and guitar playing, to the incredible Mister Meredith, a sing-along pianist described as a cross between Chas n Dave and Mrs Mills.
In keeping with our ethos, we’ll be making a donation to a nominated local cause or charity that the good citizens of E17 have chosen. The audience can join in and give too on the night.
So come and join in the fun and help everyone flourish.
Life is tough for most people living in South Los Angeles. Gun fights and drug crimes are commonplace in this neighborhood, and it’s hard to escape the vicious circle of poverty and crime. Land of the Free follows three ex-convicts and their loved ones, in the two years after their release from prison as they strive to find a new place in society. An intimate portrait of humanity in a deeply troubling environment where the prison industrial system often targets and holds back people of color. Camilla Magid explores the depths of the economically depressed district and its disadvantaged inhabitants, subjugated by an uncaring and sweltering prison system, and oppressed by the devastating, ever-present threat of gang violence.
