Thus Barbican resident, Beverley Levy, Creative Director of Love Bessie, was cloathed as a Liveryman of The Worshipful Company of Stationers and Newspaper Makers at the traditional Cloathing ceremony on Tuesday, 4 October 2011 at Stationers’ Hall.


The Stationers' Company is the City of London Livery Company for the communications and content industries.


The Tuesday Club T


he Tuesday Club was formed in the early seventies when it opened its doors to all Barbican residents.


Unlike several original clubs, WE'RE STILL HERE! (acknowledgment Stephen Sondheim). Audrey Ballard who was Chairman for eighteen years has now retired. She is planning, with her husband Denis, to take to the seas on a world cruise, celebrating her 90th birthday at the same time. June Giles has now taken up the role and, like Audrey. has been a long devotee of the Barbican and all it offers. Indeed she assisted her husband, Vic, for some seven years during the nineties to edit and produce the popular 'Barbican Resident' magazine. The objective of the Club is friendship!


However, interesting talkers, our trips to National Trust houses and other outings, parties and celebrations have been among the activities that have kept the club alive for so many years It's what the club is built upon. The Club meets at 2.45pm on Tuesdays in the Estate Office Lilac Room, O2 level of Seddon House. If you want to meet a selection of characters who made the Barbican the Tuesday Club is where to find them. For joining instructions call June on 020 7588 1623.


New facilities for Barbican Arts Group Trust


T


he Barbican Arts Group Trust (not to be confused with the other Barbican Estate-based similarly named organisation featured elsewhere in these pages) has been provided with 17 brand new units for their artists to work from thanks to riverside development Kingsland Wharves. The Barbican arts Group trust was founded back in 1984 by artists to create studio and exhibiting space in the Barbican area – originally in Sycamore Street EC1. It received charitable status in 1984 in recognition of its community and educational work undertaken through exhibitions, public art projects, open studios and schools projects.


The Kingsland Wharves development is built fronting the Kingsland Basin just off Regents Canal. Restored listed buildings also offer a taste of local heritage whilst planned on-site cafes, shops and offices will create a local buzz adding further to the community feel that the Barbican Arts Group Trust bring.


Relocating from the nearby Hertford Road where the Barbican Arts Group Trust have been since 1989, they will use the brand new units for artists to work in creating paintings, sculptures, short films, and ceramics among other work. The new space will also be used for auctions, selling some of the artist’s works with a percentage donated to the charity to fund community projects. Barbican Arts Group Trust’s, Director, Mark Wainwright says “th and provides th

charities which readers may be interested in supporting:


One of the administrative staff of two running the StreetSmart charity is Barbican resident Jennie Blouet. This innovative charity is supported by a number of restaurants across the country which add a voluntary £1 to the bills of customers in November and December with the proceeds being used to support homeless charities local to the areas in which the restaurants are located.


StreetSmart’s 2011 campaign launch party was at No.11 Downing Street. In the photograph are BBC broadcaster and StreetSmart supporter Richard Bacon with StreetSmart administrator and Barbican resident Jennie Blouet.

simplicity. It is an innovative, easy fundraising scheme which works during the holiday months when people begin to think about those less fortunate than themselves. All StreetSmart's running and operational costs are generously paid for by its sponsor, Deutsche Bank, so every penny in every £1 raised goes directly to the people who need it! Last year StreetSmart raised over £460,000 for the charities it supports and has raised £4.7 million since its inception in 1998. A full listing of participating restaurants is available on StreetSmart’s website –
