Thanks to The Reading Agency, we’re excited to share books that are truly out of the ordinary. Stories for Kids Who Dare To Be Different grew out of Stories for Boys Who Dare To Be Different (winner of the Children’s Book of the Year at the National Book Awards 2018 and The Sunday Times Number 1 bestseller).
Celebrating inspirational and amazing boys and girls who stood up and out and had the courage to be themselves, the book is beautifully illustrated and comes with a digital resource pack – with activities, audio, and sample pages from the upcoming Stories for Boys who Dare to be Different Journal.

With talk of Israel’s Annexation of the West Bank weighing heavily in the air, we wanted to remind ourselves of the beautiful resistance and the historic and proud identity of the Palestinians once more. And what better way to do that than through the distinctive and wonderful food Palestine is known for.
With most of us unable to travel to sample different cultures and cuisines this summer, we wanted to bring a taste of Palestine to you. So, as you plan your meals for next week, build in a Palestinian night on Thursday 16th July as Phoebe Rison (The Olive Tree Kitchen) joins us at 7pm to cook up a storm.
We’ll share the dishes and the ingredients you’ll need this weekend and then the idea is that you join us at 7pm on Thursday July 16th to cook along with Phoebe to create your own taste of Palestine just where you are.
On the menu will be:
- Loaded Labaneh
- Summer Kofta
- Salata Arabia
- Shatta Sauce
- All served with pickles, olives, warm pita bread and chilled white wine
And if this sounds overwhelming, worry not. Phoebe has designed this menu to be quick and easy to prepare – perfect for a summer’s evening.
Chris Rose, from our friends at Amos Trust, will be in conversation with Phoebe as she cooks, reminding us all that food is as political as it is cultural. The conversation and the food will hopefully remind us all to renew our commitment to fight for a just peace and equal rights for all those who call Palestine-Israel their home.

Having just completed a 24-date virtual tour of major US venues, singer-songwriter Crys Matthews joins our very own Martyn Joseph tonight, energised by what she describes as “the good she’s been able to do”.
Now back in North Carolina, Crys comes to us tonight with all the soul and artistry, struggle and hopefulness of a modern-day Tracy Chapman. Only to compare her like that is not to do her justice.
Crys is an amazing artist. With a relaxed and easy style, she writes songs with a power and directness that connects deeply with all those who hear her.
This will be the last Rising show for a while now and you won’t want to miss it. Streaming for the first time direct to Youtube and Facebook tonight at 8pm.

So get your diaries out now and make sure you have cleared the decks for Saturday and Sunday, 29-30th August. Plans, schemes and dreams are being drawn up as you read this, and we'll share them with you very soon, but for now save the date and tell your friends... ... See MoreSee Less
