Arts and Cultural update

As the month of May draws closer with its promise of spring days and fresh blossoms, this month at Collage Arts, we're focussed on emerging soulful Jazz and World vibes.  From our fresh and funky gigs with Ed Riches' Local Authority, Koral Society, DJs nights, to the jazzy vibrant tones of Loz Speyer's TimeZone and big band, Frank Griffith Nonet, all together in the lovely setting of Karamel at Chocolate Factory 2 with Lea Yehud's exhibition, and fun for all ages at the Family Fun Day.  In this issue, we also announce the winner of the Haringey Childrens Book Award and launch textile and jewellery workshops during Mental Health Awareness week at Chocolate Factory 3.
