Battersea Together—from Words to Action! 23rd February 2017

In February 2016 44 people from 35 organisations in Battersea met in York Garden’s Library to discuss areas of common interest/concern!

In answer to the question ‘What prevents people in Battersea from reaching their full potential” the group highlighted the most significant themes as being – Mental Health, Lacking a Voice, Confidence and Affordable Housing.

The 2nd Battersea Together event this February will revisit these and other barriers to participation with the aim of developing concrete solutions, hopefully through partnership working!

When: 23rd February (Time to be confirmed)

Where: York Gardens Library

The Blue Bird


Join us this December as we preview lightbox exciting new show The Blue Bird.

With support from Battersea Power Station Foundation and Big Local SW11, we are delighted to preview the show for two performances in our local Battersea community at Katherine Low Settlement on Saturday 10th December 2016 (3.30pm and 7pm).

The story follows a child’s search to find the blue bird of happiness, and is a rare chance to see this beautiful and overlooked fairytale by Maurice Maeterlinck.

Visually imaginative and featuring live music, the show will be directed by Anna Marsland (Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time) and will be a magical journey for young and old alike.


The show will then be presented at the New Wimbledon Theatre Studio on Saturday 28th January 2017 (4pm and 7pm) and we look forward to touring it to further venues from February 2017 – details to be announced soon.

To book tickets go to the lightbox website

We look forward to seeing very soon!

Big Local SW11 funded medals for Karate championship

Buna Kazoku Karate Club believes that every child should experience what it is like to feel a sense of achievement by giving each child a first , second or third place medal during its Autumn 2016 championship.

This has been possible for this tournament because Big Local SW11 funded a medal for every child.

Buna Kazoku is run by Andrew Beech and the Saturday session is organised by the Women of Wandsworth.

Wandsworth Kids TV and Keepsake Videos have recorded some footage of this championship, enjoy !
