It’s part documentary, part spoken word piece, and the leaps from steady documentary voiceover to intense, eyes-to-the-camera actors are jarringly effective. And seeing the words brought to such vivid life is more than just a novelty, it’s an enhancement to these already dramatic tales. The addition of original archive footage is a worthwhile bonus, but it’s the actors that steal the show here. Worth catching if you have even a passing interest.
Acklam Village Market
A weekend street food market in west London, with a large covered area created from recycled materials. The ten stalls provide Cuban cuisine, burgers, barbecued wild game, Jamaican jerk, Indian, Peruvian and more. Plus Fuller's bar sell beer from micro-breweries, alongside the usual beverages. There's a big focus on the local community here, so on any one weekend you could find installations by local artists here, street entertainment, live music ranging from jazz to rock 'n' roll, DJs and even a pop-up beach.
Venue says: “Grab a cheeky drink and enjoy free live music in an epic space ... the mundane truly becomes extraordinary!”
