Today it is three years since the Tuesday night Women’s Circle started! With London Women’s Voices.

We celebrated on Tuesday – delicious food (including homemade Pumpkin muffins), civil rights anthems, heart-filling harmonies, an improvisation blending lines from our favourite tunes and a new and very silly mash up of our feminist A Whole New World and Chaiyya Chaiyya.

Then Diwali lights, a blessing tree, and some skipping! N’s ‘yard’ sale raised cash for the next Movement for Justice demo at Yarls Wood Immigration detention centre. 

See the pics below – spot the blessing leaf by our newest 7 year old member. And yes we are pretending to be on a magic carpet/top of a train in one of them.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped the circle to keep going for three years – all the wonderful women and children who come to sing (and share food, put away chairs, wash up, help with organising…. the under-staed nitty gritty of being a community). Plus the team at St Luke’s Community Centre including Keren, Pat and the welcoming reception team. And  thank you to everyone who has sent encouragement and support over the past three years.

The next monthly circle is on Tuesday 6th December, 6.30-8.30pm. New singers always warmly welcome!
