Sefton Park summer carnival

tenantspin hosted an afternoon of dancing, eating and singing (as well as the occasional drink!) at Sefton Park community Centre last week to usher in our great British summer.

The afternoon was partly organised by Katie Yoxell a student of community art from the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts who worked with Margo Hogg, Jean Niblock, Lily Clarke and John McGuirk and other residents from Sefton Park to put together a summer themed party which included everything from grass skirts to sangria.

Everyone had a truly lovely time and our thanks go to harpist Charly, Pat for the wonderful line dancing, the Twirlies for their creative writing, the girls from LIPA for their 4 piece acapella performance, Margo for her help with organising the day and for her perfomance, all the ladies and gents who brought along homemade cakes (which we all enjoyed) John for his legendary spoon playing and for everyone who turned out in their summer best – lets hope this is the start of a great summer at Sefton Park!

Also, congratulations to Katie for passing her assesment with flying colours with an getting such a great mark in her assesment.

The tenantspin Variety Hour…from Sefton Park

tenantspin join forces with Huey Jones and Billy Yates for an afternoon of songs, stories, tea, coffee and chat all centred around Liverpool and her vast musical heritage. Compared by Margo Hogg (tenantspin participant and professional performer) there were renditions of the Spinners hits ‘The Leaving of Liverpool’ as well as some well known songs often performed in and around Liverpool during the 1950′s courtesy of Billy Yates.

The event kicked off what we hope will be a year long spectacle of song and dance broadcast from our Sefton Park studio….watch this space for information on up and coming events!
