Cream Boxing Night 2007 Announced

WITH just 6 weeks to go until Xmas, its time to start planning your festive season celebrations! Which is what Cream have been doing for the last few months and have put together a typically impressive line up guaranteed to get you dancing off some of those excess festival calories!

After an almighty Courtyard smash up at Cream’s 15th birthday last month, the newly appointed Worlds Number 1 DJ Armin Van Buuren returns, this time he’ll be test driving the Main Room. Fresh from selling out 11,000 capacity stadiums, this will be an intimate affair for Armin, a DJ renowned for untouchable mixing skills and epic 10 hour sets. He will be joined by Sander Van Doorn, rated No.15 in this years DJ Mag Top 100 poll, Sander is one of the latest superstar tech/trance DJs to descend from the Netherlands, expect a melting pot of musical styles from Sander who is successfully carving himself a genre all of his own. Joining the duo in the Main Room will be DJ Remy and Cream Resident Gareth Wyn.

Spicing things up in the Courtyard we see the return of Cream favourites the Swedish House Mafia. This holy trinity that is Steve Angello, Axwell and Sebastian Ingrosso have trail blazed their way to the top over the last few years, delivering mouth watering performances that are guaranteed to get even the most cynical of house music lover busting some moves on the dancefloor. They’re trademark ‘swedish’ sound fits perfectly in the hallowed confounds of the Courtyard, and they will be ably assisted by cream regulars Lee Ellis & Anthony Probyn who will be warming up the crowd in their own inimitable style.

The intimacy of the Annexe will be lending itself to some of the UK’s hottest talent, expect 8 hours of pure unadulterated tech house from the likes of D Ramirez, voted 2007’s Best producer and British Remixer. This Ivor Novello nominated muso will be joined by Tocadisco, Turnmills resident Gavyn Mytchel, Sean Hughes and our very own Andy Mac.

A YouGov poll has revealed that over 60% of the British public would prefer their local services to be run by a social enterprise - instead of the government.

The findings were released on Social Enterprise Day  - a national day of events celebrating businesses set up to tackle social or environmental issues. These social enterprises are profit-making businesses which reinvest the majority of their profits for the benefit of their community.  There are 55,000 social enterprises in the UK, with a combined turnover of £27 billion a year and well-known examples include The Big Issue, Jamie Oliver’s 15 and fair-trade coffee company Cafédirect. A large percentage are already delivering public services, such as Greenwich Leisure Limited, the Sandwell Community Caring Trust and Mid Devon Community Recycling.

The survey was completed on behalf of the Social Enterprise Coalition and asked respondents what type of institution they would choose to run their local services (i.e. healthcare, rubbish collection and transport) as efficiently as possible, assuming the cost of the service would not change.  Out of the over 2,200 people polled across Great Britain, 64% said they would choose a social enterprise to run their local services. Only 11% said they would pick a Government institution.

Chief Executive of the Social Enterprise Coalition Jonathan Bland said:- “Across the country thousands of social enterprises are already providing innovative and practical solutions to the key issues of our time - whilst contributing significantly to the economy.  By combining a public sector ethos with commercial efficiency and by offering real value for money social enterprises are clearly the logical choice to deliver public services.  The movement already enjoys wide cross party support and we are delighted to see the British people are aware of what social enterprises are doing to transform communities across the country.”

Social Enterprise Ambassador Dr. Sam Everington is a GP at the award-winning Bromley-By-Bow Centre in the deprived borough of Tower Hamlets. Internationally recognised for its work, the health centre runs over 100 projects aimed at boosting local education and employment, improving the environment and increasing creativity in the community.


THE British Heart Foundation (BHF) is calling on people in Merseyside to get in the festive spirit and take part in the Liverpool Santa Jog on Sunday 2 December.

The sponsored Jog, which is organised by Liverpool-based company L13 10K, is now in its 4th year and one of the largest events of its kind in the country.  With the aim of raising over £100,000 people of all ages and abilities will be running, jogging or walking the 5km course - and they'll all be dressed as Santa!   Money raised at this year's event will benefit 10 charities across the UK - including the BHF.

Ken Fretwell, BHF Community Fundraising & Volunteer Manager for Merseyside, called on all budding Santas to swap their sleighs for trainers and take part.  He said:- "The BHF is the nation's heart charity, raising funds for pioneering research that saves and improves the lives of vulnerable adults and children. Every two minutes someone has a heart attack and with your help, we can help beat heart disease together."

Organiser Alan Rothwell added:- "This really is a great event with an amazing atmosphere and we encourage people to join in the fun."

The event starts at 9.30am and costs £15 to enter. Every adult taking part will receive a free santa suit.  To register, log on to
