5pm – 6pm – Ask York 4: City Centre Regeneration & Urban Renewal

With Panel:

  • Pete Kilbane – Chair
  • Imelda Havers – Independent Regeneration Consultant
  • David Dunning – News Editor at Minster FM
  • Cllr. Ashley Mason – Lib Dem
  • Phil Pinder – York Retail Forum

Ask York 4 focused on City Centre Regeneration and there were some fantastic questions and great debate form both the live studio audience and the panel.

Should there be a cross party city summit to tackle #York’s issues on #regeneration and behaviour?  Is there a lack of leadership in @CityofYork on this?

Discussion moves on pedestrianisation of #York – do you think having more #footstreets would be a good thing for the future of the city?

Would a tourist tax help the regeneration of #York asks @GSwinburn? @imeldahavers says as a resident she has no problem with #tourists but stag & hen parties are a strain on resources and we should focus on that.

Would a tourist tax make #York a pariah city or a leader? Views from the floor at #AskYork are largely in favour; lively debate now happening about stag and hen parties!

Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum and the other panelists agree that business rates are archaic and should be abolished. @imeldahavers says they are the bane of retailers’ lives.

What can we do with the large empty shops and could they house indoor markets? Phil Pinder of @YorkRetailForum is in favour; @daviddunninguk says demographics have changed; maybe city-centre shops have had their day & focus should be on food/drink/entertainment?

Future of the old BHS centre revealed!

Final question for #AskYork is about #recycling: questioner asks why #York doesn’t have segregated bins in the city centre – the state of #York is an embarrassment!

Great questions and informative answers. This is a not to be missed show for anybody that cares about the future of our city!

6pm – 7pm –   Information Takeaway: Juliet’s  first show of 2019 was so good that we want to play it again – in case anyone missed it! This episode tackles the issues around home and school education – are there valid reasons for taking your child out of school? Can schools support home schooling more proactively to blend home and school education? Do we need a shake up in our education system and different ways of thinking in the modern age? We are joined by Izzy Renkin-Holliway who is training to be a teacher and was home-schooled herself and get the point of view of parents plus our usual great music!

7pm-8pm  – This week Breaking York takes on a new time and a new shape. We’ll have our usual mix of original music from local bands/artists around Yorkshire with information about where these great recordings happened, plus a couple of new twists. In the first show  of 2019 we’ll be playing a song from Colin Cutler – and we’ll be featuring Colin’s work for two shows before having a live special in the studio and chatting about his songs and where people can hear him play etc. For other twists and turns you’ll have to tune in.

8pm-9pm –   Soul Funktion returns in a new slot for the first show of the New Year. With Dave Johnson having just returned from his annual pilgrimage at the ‘Luxury Soul Weekend’ in Blackpool he will be paying homage to the event playing a collection of modern soul music from 2000 up to the present day. Therefore sit back and enjoy some classic modern soul gems

Breaking York Special!

Tadcaster based singer/songwriter Bryony Drake is coming to the Two Rivers Radio broadcast lounge to play tracks from her new as yet unreleased EP plus a few extras. Live and exclusive to Breaking York and Two Rivers Radio

Bryony’s vocal style is unique – which is difficult to achieve when there are so many great vocalists out there. Her penchant for wrapping the emotional conundrum inside a dystopian enigma leaves your ears burning with a mixture of why me and a desire to stop the world and fix it.
You’ll fall in love with the characters in her songs as they wrench at your heart strings and stir your compassion for an artist whose talent is under appreciated – still unsigned Bryony is a vocal ruby surrounded by lyrical diamonds set in 18 carat gold.

Tune into Breaking York between midday – 1pm today!

Theatre Review: The Price (York Settlement Community Players)

 

 

 

Highly illuminating and thought-provoking, yet humorous!

Written by winner of the 2018 York ‘Script Factor’, Sophie Buckley, ‘The Price’ was certainly worth the money! Directed by Jim Paterson and produced by Helen Wilson, the play was performed at a favourite York pub, the Eagle and Child on High Petergate. It deals with numerous engaging issues surrounding not only the history of cryptocurrency but also various concepts of value: both in a monetary and in an emotional sense.

Throughout the performance, a disturbing reminder of the fluctuation of both trends and of Bitcoin flashed upon the wall in an almost dystopian fashion. From the outset, members of the audience were participants in the performance, directly addressed by a charming yet bogus salesman (Liam Godfrey) who exhorted us to invest in a new cryptocurrency, ‘Antheum’. He suddenly froze and the meta-narrative broke into the play’s main narrative elements.

In the general plot, a young construction worker (David Phillipps) bids his sweetheart (Joy Warner) farewell as she leaves to read philosophy at Cambridge. While she is there, the relationship comes under strain as the young woman encounters a smarmy and unscrupulous lecturer (Thomas Jennings) who entices her both romantically and then financially into investing in Bitcoin. As this story plays out, the audience is shown intermittent recordings of a distressed woman (Jess Murray) being convicted for numerous crimes by the Californian state.

Inspired by real events surrounding Bitcoin, the play is an ingenious commentary on cryptocurrency, the danger of unrealistic or confused dreams, and – what I at least inferred – a certain arrogance that exists in academia. It draws upon the true story of a Welshman who discarded a hard drive containing £70 million worth of Bitcoin and also that of the founder of the Silk Road, Ross Ulbricht, who was sentenced to life imprisonment. The character whose story reflects that of Ross Ulbricht was portrayed by Jess Murray, who was seen only via video recording until later on in the play, making her entrance particularly striking. Her performance in the video as she was convicted was convincing and powerful and left me wide-eyed. Her live performance towards the end of the performance then played a critically cohesive role in terms of the plot.

The relationship between the young couple almost reduced me to tears in parts! Though I was surprised to see David Phillipps in the role of a sweet, honest young builder (I’m sure he perhaps should have had a slightly less RP accent), his performance was marvellous and even rather heart-breaking. Equally impressive was that of Joy Warner, who evolved from a naïve fresher at university to a resolute woman finally marrying her true sweetheart and realising what matters in life (note: not Bitcoin!). Thomas Jennings, who played the both idealistic and lecherous lecturer, truly brought alive that kind of character whom those of us who went to certain universities will definitely have met at least once in our lives. Suffice it to say, by the end none of the audience seemed very keen to invest in ‘Antheum’… At least, I hope so, in spite of Liam Godfrey’s persuasive orations.

A mere hour and a half long, the performance was expertly crafted to interact with the space it was in, which was not particularly large and was thus created a quite intensely intimate environment. The whole thing both really entertained me and really made me think, and I don’t think you can ask for too much more from a theatre performance!

Watch out for more events by the York Settlement Community Players, including play readings, a Christmas Extravaganza on 7 December, and the production of The Duchess of Malfi from 16 March 2019.

Plastic Waste and Eco Bricks

Bootham School may just have found a Solution to the plastic problem…

Bootham School has committed to becoming involved with the ‘Eco bricks’ campaign. An Ecobrick is a reusable building block created by packing clean and dry used plastic into a plastic bottle to a set density. Ecobricks enable us to take personal responsibility for our plastic. The Ecobricks will then be used in school to create several projects and ensure that we are recycling our own waste.

Bootham School Council (follow us on Instagram) discussed getting involved with this campaign and over the next few days, there will be bins put across the school where students and staff can put plastic rubbish (including the plastic bottles).  The contents of the bins will then be used to create the Ecobricks.

Kate Hey and Robert Gardiner from Bootham School will be joining John Cossham tomorrow on Compost John’s Recycled Radio Show to discuss the project.

Tune in from 8-9pm here: www.tworiversradio.stream
